Potential relevance to the human ageing process

Main reason for selection
Entry selected based on evidence linking the gene product to a pathway or mechanism linked to ageing
Description

Also called hsc70 and hsp73, HSPA8 is a constitutively expressed chaperone. Age-related changes in stress response have been reported in rats, though HSPA8 levels do not appear to change with age [915]. Whether HSPA8 plays any role in human ageing remains to be determined.
