27046040 findings strongly suggest that phosphorylated HSP20 inhibits TGF-alpha-induced HCC cell migration and invasion via suppression of the JNK signaling pathway
26694816 multiple sclerosis lesions revealed exclusive induction of HSPB6 in astrocytes, as confirmed by co-localization of HSPB6 with GFAP.
25965061 N-terminal mutations increase stability of large HspB1 homooligomers, prevent their phosphorylation-dependent dissociation, modulate their interaction with HspB6 and decrease their chaperoning capacity, preventing normal functioning of HspB1.
25447820 These findings strongly suggest that HSP20 might decrease the IKK-alpha protein level and that it down-regulates the TNF-alpha-stimulated intracellular signaling in HCC, thus resulting in the suppression of HCC progression.
25423708 HSP20 may play a protective role against the progression of ovarian cancer.
25332102 peptides in heat-shock protein Hsp20 (G71HFSVLLDVKHFSPEEIAVK91) and Hsp27 (D93RWRVSLDVNHFAPDELTVK113) with sequence homology to alpha-crystallin also have robust chaperone and anti-apoptotic activities.
25187324 Data suggest that heat shock protein 20 (HSP20) may have value as a prognostic tumor marker and its overexpression might be a novel strategy for colorectal cancer (CRC) therapy.
24969689 Findings strongly suggest that HSP20 directly associates with Bax and stimulates caspase cascade in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells.
24223153 HSP20 directly associates with PI3K subunits and suppresses its activity in hepatocellular carcinoma, resulting in the inhibition of the AKT pathway, and subsequently decreasing the growth of hepatocellular carcinoma.
22794279 14-3-3zeta and possibly other 14-3-3 isoforms may have additional functional roles conducted by the monomeric state
