Molecular chaperones (proteins) - help or damage?
Molecular chaperones are the component of prokaryotic as well as eukaryotic cells and protect them against environmental stress. It was proved that mutations in the chaperone gene can cause a neurodegeneric or cancer diseases. Presently, there are many studies on their molecular recognition in biochemical processes.
The present review summarizes current results of studies about influence of molecular chaperones on the pathogenic diseases and their application in therapy.
Keywords: molecular chaperones, environmental stress, neurodegeneric disease, cancer.
