26718575 expands the understanding of disease mechanisms, tissue involvement, and phenotypic outcome of HSPB8 mutations
26694816 This study demonstreated that expression of HSPB8 was restricted to GFAP+ astrocytes in patient with multiple sclerosis.
26496431 our findings suggest the existence of a so-far unrecognized quality control mechanism involving BAG3, HSPB8 and p62/SQSTM1 for accurate remodelling of actin-based mitotic structures that guide spindle orientation.
25731856 HSP22 acts as a positive regulator in TGF-alpha-induced migration of ovarian cancer cells, subsequently directing ovarian cancer toward progression.
25051369 Pangenomic profiling of velcade-sensitive and resistant cells showed that the small heat shock protein HSPB8 was overexpressed in multiple myeloma resistant cells.
24804817 HSP22 plays an important role on gastric tumor aggressiveness and prognosis and may act as a promising target for prognostic prediction.
22898869 The expression of HspB8 inhibits the growth of genetically diverse melanoma cells that include caspase-1 activation outside of the realm of the inflammasome, mTORC1-dependent Beclin-1 upregulation and its cleavage by the activated caspase-1.
22595202 Mutant HSPB8 causes protein aggregates and a reduced mitochondrial membrane potential in dermal fibroblasts from distal hereditary motor neuropathy patients.
22302993 findings show that during heat shock recovery NF-kappaB activates selective removal of misfolded or aggregated proteins by controlling expression of BAG3 and HSPB8 and by modulating the level of the BAG3-HspB8 complex
22176143 We studied the HSPB1 and HSPB8 mutation occurrence in patients with distal hereditary motor neuropathy and those with the axonal form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2
