HSPA1A

An intronless gene on chromosome 6p21.3 that encodes a member of the heat shock 70 (HSP70) family which, in conjunction with other heat shock proteins, stabilises extant proteins against aggregation and mediates the folding of newly translated proteins in the cytosol and in organelles. HSPA1A is a component of the so-called CatSper complex.
