Summaries for HSPB1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for HSPB1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the small heat shock protein (HSP20) family of proteins. In response to environmental stress, the encoded protein translocates from the cytoplasm to the nucleus and functions as a molecular chaperone that promotes the correct folding of other proteins. This protein plays an important role in the differentiation of a wide variety of cell types. Expression of this gene is correlated with poor clinical outcome in multiple human cancers, and the encoded protein may promote cancer cell proliferation and metastasis, while protecting cancer cells from apoptosis. Mutations in this gene have been identified in human patients with Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease and distal hereditary motor neuropathy. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2017]

Post-translational modifications for HSPB1 Gene

  • Phosphorylated upon exposure to protein kinase C activators and heat shock (PubMed:8325890). Phosphorylation by MAPKAPK2 and MAPKAPK3 in response to stress dissociates HSPB1 from large small heat-shock protein (sHsps) oligomers and impairs its chaperone activity and ability to protect against oxidative stress effectively. Phosphorylation by MAPKAPK5 in response to PKA stimulation induces F-actin rearrangement (PubMed:1332886, PubMed:8093612, PubMed:19166925).

  • Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease 2F (CMT2F) [MIM:606595]: A dominant axonal form of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease, a disorder of the peripheral nervous system, characterized by progressive weakness and atrophy, initially of the peroneal muscles and later of the distal muscles of the arms. Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease is classified in two main groups on the basis of electrophysiologic properties and histopathology: primary peripheral demyelinating neuropathies (designated CMT1 when they are dominantly inherited) and primary peripheral axonal neuropathies (CMT2). Neuropathies of the CMT2 group are characterized by signs of axonal degeneration in the absence of obvious myelin alterations, normal or slightly reduced nerve conduction velocities, and progressive distal muscle weakness and atrophy. Nerve conduction velocities are normal or slightly reduced. Onset of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2F is between 15 and 25 years with muscle weakness and atrophy usually beginning in feet and legs (peroneal distribution). Upper limb involvement occurs later. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15122254, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20178975, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22176143, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22206013, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23728742}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Neuronopathy, distal hereditary motor, 2B (HMN2B) [MIM:608634]: A neuromuscular disorder. Distal hereditary motor neuronopathies constitute a heterogeneous group of neuromuscular disorders caused by selective degeneration of motor neurons in the anterior horn of the spinal cord, without sensory deficit in the posterior horn. The overall clinical picture consists of a classical distal muscular atrophy syndrome in the legs without clinical sensory loss. The disease starts with weakness and wasting of distal muscles of the anterior tibial and peroneal compartments of the legs. Later on, weakness and atrophy may expand to the proximal muscles of the lower limbs and/or to the distal upper limbs. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15122254, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18832141, ECO:0000269 PubMed:18952241, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20178975, ECO:0000269 PubMed:20870250, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22176143, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23643870, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23728742, ECO:0000269 PubMed:23948568, ECO:0000269 PubMed:25965061, ECO:0000269 PubMed:28144995}.
