A few considerations on the heat shock proteins in immunity



A few considerations on the heat shock proteins in immunity



Romanian Journal of Internal Medicine 43(1-2): 35-47



Heat shock proteins, present in all procaryote and eucaryote cells, are a family of highly preserved endogenous proteins, with a protecting role for cells. Their synthesis is induced by high temperature, the presence of oxygen free radicals or other stressing factors, such as: exposure to toxic compounds (heavy metals, organic solvents) and certain physio-pathological events, like infection or tissular necrosis.
