Knox, Caroline, Luke, Garry, Blatch, Gregory ORCID: 0000-0003-0778-8577 and Pesce, Eve-Rachele (2011) Heat shock protein 40 (Hsp40) plays a key role in the virus life cycle. Virus Research, 160 (1-2). pp. 15-24. ISSN 0168-1702


The heat shock proteins (Hsps) are a diverse subset of molecular chaperones that generally promote the proper folding of proteins after translation and also prevent their aggregation during cellular stress. Paradoxically, cellular chaperones might perform important antiviral functions for host cells, yet, at the same time, might be beneficial for virus replication. Among them, Hsp40 is a specialized co-chaperone that has recently received much attention for its crucial role in both constitutive cellular functions and virus pathogenicity. The aim of this review is to raise awareness of its importance in the life cycles of a wide range of viruses.
