This gene encodes a 70kDa heat shock protein. In conjunction with other heat shock proteins, this protein stabilizes existing proteins against aggregation and mediates the folding of newly translated proteins in the cytosol and in organelles. The gene is located in the major histocompatibility complex class III region, in a cluster with two closely related genes which also encode isoforms of the 70kDa heat shock protein.

GeneCards Summary for HSPA1L Gene
HSPA1L (Heat Shock 70kDa Protein 1-Like) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with HSPA1L include diabetic foot ulcers and pulmonary edema. Among its related pathways are MAPK signaling pathway and Endocytosis. An important paralog of this gene is HSPA2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for HSPA1L Gene
In cooperation with other chaperones, Hsp70s stabilize preexistent proteins against aggregation and mediate the folding of newly translated polypeptides in the cytosol as well as within organelles. These chaperones participate in all these processes through their ability to recognize nonnative conformations of other proteins. They bind extended peptide segments with a net hydrophobic character exposed by polypeptides during translation and membrane translocation, or following stress-induced damage (By similarity). Positive regulator of PARK2 translocation to damaged mitochondria.
