Previous GeneCards Identifiers for HSPA4L Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is heat shock inducible and may act as a chaperone. The encoded protein can protect the heat-shocked cell against the harmful effects of aggregated proteins. This gene is highly expressed in leukemia cells and may be a good target for therapeutic intervention. Several transcripts encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
