26782567 Three of the differentially expressed heat-schock proteins, HSP90A, HSPB1, and HSPB2, are up-regulated in giant cell tumor of bone patients.
26465331 HspB2 has roles in maintaining ATP levels and as well as chaperone-dependent functions for metabolic homeostasis
24985029 Results suggest a limited function of alphaB-crystallin and HSP27 in preventing abnormal tau protein deposition in glial cells and neurons; in addition, the expression of alphaB-crystallin phosphorylated at Ser59 may act as a protective factor in glial cells.
24859470 These findings provide novel insights into the role of p53 as a regulator of bidirectional gene pair HspB2/alpha B-crystallin-mediated ROS and the Warburg effect
22272249 Study shows that HspB2 oligomers exchange subunits.
21258768 promoter methylation of heat shock protein B2 is a novel molecular biomarker in human esophageal squamous cell carcinoma
20592365 analysis of CEA-, Her2/neu-, BCRP- and Hsp27-positive microparticles in breast cancer patients
20456980 Hsp27, but not the classic Hsp60 and Hsp70, may be associated with the development bronchiolitis obliterans syndrome.
20378664 Observational study of gene-disease association. (HuGE Navigator)
20336542 The abnormal expression of 14-3-3 sigma and HSP27 is significantly associated with lymph node metastasis in colorectal cancer.
