The cardioprotective role of small heat-shock protein 20.


The small HSP (heat-shock protein) HSP20 is a molecular chaperone that is transiently up-regulated in response to cellular stress/damage. Although ubiquitously expressed in various tissues, it is most highly expressed in skeletal, cardiac and smooth muscle. Phosphorylation at Ser16 by PKA (cAMP-dependent protein kinase) is essential for HSP20 to confer its… (More)
