GRP78/HSPA5 Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

GRP78/HSPA5 cDNA / Gene Overview

HSPA5 gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 9q33.3. The HSPA5 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, fruit fly, mosquito, C.elegans, S.cerevisiae, K.lactis, E.gossypii, S.pombe, M.oryzae, N.crassa, A.thaliana, rice, and frog.232 organisms have orthologs with human gene HSPA5.

GRP78/HSPA5 cDNA / Gene Function

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the heat shock protein 70 (HSP70) family. It is localized in the lumen of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER), and is involved in the folding and assembly of proteins in the ER. As this protein interacts with many ER proteins, it may play a key role in monitoring protein transport through the cell.[provided by RefSeq, Sep 2010]
