HSP27, also referred to as the Estrogen-Regulated 24K protein and HSP28, is one of several small heat shock proteins (HSP) produced by all organisms studied. HSP27 synthesis is induced by elevated temperature as well as estrogen in hormone responsive cells. Interestingly, human HSP27 also shares greater than 50% homology with low molecular weight Drosphilia HSPÕs and mammalian alpha-crystalline lens protein. Because of the estrogen responsive nature of HSP27, this protein has been studied extensively in human estrogen responsive tissues such as cervix, endometrium and breast tissue. Therefore, HSP27 may be useful in classifying various hormone sensitive tumors.
