HSPA9

(redirected from GRP75)

HSPA9

A gene on chromosome 5q31.1 that encodes a member of the heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) family which localises to the mitochondria as well as the endoplasmic reticulum, plasma membrane and cytoplasmic vesicles. HSPA9 plays a role in cell proliferation, stress response and maintenance of mitochondria; it may play a role in controlling cell proliferation and ageing and act as a chaperone.

Among the stress responsive proteins we found GRP75 (Stress-70 protein), HSP7E (Heat shock 70 kDa protein 14) and TCPA (T-complex protein 1) down-regulated in curcumin-treated cells.
Some apoptosis-related proteins, such as ANAX1, TCTP and GRP75, also appeared in the biological networks.
