HSPD1

A gene on chromosome 2q33.1 that encodes a mitochondrial protein of the chaperonin family, which may function as a signalling molecule in the innate immune system. It is essential for the folding and assembly of newly imported proteins in mitochondria. HSPD1 is adjacent to a related gene; the region between the two acts as a bidirectional promoter.

Molecular pathology
HSPD1 mutations cause autosomal recessive spastic paraplegia 13.

Table II.- Primers used for amplification of hsp65 gene (Telenti et al., 1993).
The animals were euthanized 14 days after the last dose and IFN-[gamma] and IL-10 were quantified in spleen cell cultures stimulated with recombinant hsp65 (rhsp65).
From 35 clinical samples considered true positive by clinical parameters for TBM diagnosis, IS6110 PCR was able to detect 32 of them followed by culture and hsp65 KDa (16 samples) and MPB64 (12 samples).
This may improve the longevity of the antigen derived from Hsp65 in the spleen, thus improving the activation of a protective immune response.
The most rapid and accurate method for identification is gene sequencing: 16s rRNA, rpoB, and hsp65.
Excessive T-and B-cell responses to major four peptides of Mycobacterium tuberculosis HSP65 and human counterparts of HSP60 were observed in patients with BD who lived in Europe, Far-Eastern Asia, and Middle East 10, 88-90].

For example, a DNA vaccine coding bacterial HSP65 administered in a post-exposure regimen was effective in reducing the bacterial load in mice infected with M.
Several gene regions have been used as molecular targets for the identification of mycobacterial species, these include hsp65 (29,33,34), rpoB gene (35), dnaJ gene (36), 32 kDa protein gene (37), 16S rRNA gene (38,39), 16S-23S rRNA gene spacer (24-26,28,36), promoter region of 16S rRNA (39) and secA1 (40).
