Caenorhabditis elegans


CELE_T27E4.2, hsp-16, T27E4.2
hsp-16.11 encodes a 16-kD heat shock protein (HSP) that is a member of the hsp16/hsp20/alphaB-crystallin (HSP16) family of heat shock proteins, and that is identical to the protein encoded by hsp-16.1; hsp-16.11 expression is induced in response to heat shock or other environmental stresses; HSP-16.11 is likely to function as passive ligand temporarily preventing unfolded proteins from aggregating; HSP-16.11 has been shown to interact with intracellular human beta amyloid peptide, a primary component of the extracellular plaques found in Alzheimer's disease.
