Cells possess effective mechanisms to cope with chronic or acute disturbance of homeostasis. Key roles in maintaining or restoring homeostasis are played by the various heat shock or stress proteins (Hsps). Among the Hsps, the group of proteins characterized by low molecular masses (between 20 to 30 kDa) and homology to alpha-crystallin are called small stress proteins (denoted sHsps). The present chapter summarizes the actual knowledge of the protective mechanisms generated by the expression… CONTINUE READING
