Presence in other biological fluids/tissue/cells Ubiquitous, high levels in heart, striated and smooth muscles
Protein Function also known as sHSP 27conserved across species and are important in stress tolerance; exhibit chaperone-like activity in preventing aggregation of target proteins; may exhibit immunomodulatory and anti-inflammatory functions; predominantly heat-inducible; involved in diverse cellular functions such as stress tolerance, protein folding, protein degradation, maintaining cytoskeletal integrity, cell death, differentiation, cell cycle and signal transduction and development; exhibit cardio and neuroprotection, potent anti-apoptotic activity, pro-angiogenic property and anti-inflammatory property involving interactions with several clients; bovine αBcrystallin prevent aggregation of citrate synthase and α-glucosidase
Biochemical Properties bind Cu2+, and suppress generation of reactive oxygen species (ROS) ; Temperature-dependent conformational change in α-crystallin leading to the increased exposure of hydrophobic surfaces paralleled the increase in chaperone-like activity; undergoes thermally induced self-association, leading to increased oligomeric size, which correlated with increase in its chaperone-like activity; increase the refolding yields of citrate synthase and α-glucosidase upon refolding from their urea-denatured state
Significance in milk heat stress proteins in mamary gland
PTMs phosphorylated, especially under stress conditions - phosphorylation of serines(S), S15, S78, and S82 in human Hsp27;
Significance of PTMs sensitive to heat stress and mainly responsible for mammary cell protection from heat stress
