Gene information for HSPB1 (Homo sapiens)
(Information is obtained from NCBI Gene database)
Entrez gene ID3315
Official gene symbolHSPB1
Full nameheat shock 27kDa protein 1
Gene summaryThe protein encoded by this gene is induced by environmental stress and developmental changes. The encoded protein is involved in stress resistance and actin organization and translocates from the cytoplasm to the nucleus upon stress induction. Defects in this gene are a cause of Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2F (CMT2F) and distal hereditary motor neuropathy (dHMN). [provided by RefSeq]
