A gene on chromosome 19q13.12 that encodes a member of the (small) heat shock protein 20 family that translocates to nuclear foci during heat shock.

Some small heat shock proteins are tissue specific in human such as HspB2, HspB3, [alpha]-crystalline (HspB4), HspB7, HspB9, and HspB10, while others are expressed in all human tissues including HspBl, aB-crystalline (Hsp-B5), HspB6 (20 kDa) and HspB8 (10-17).

For instance HSPB6 plays important role in cardioprotection and phosphorylation of HSPB6 by cyclic nucleotide dependent protein kinase is associated with relaxation of smooth muscles.
