Alternative Name(s): Heat Shock Protein 47, SERPINH1, Cell Proliferation-Inducing Gene 14 Protein


Test Description

Heat shock protein 47 (HSP47) is a collagen-binding protein in the endoplasmic reticulum that functions as a molecular chaperone. Altered expression levels of HSP47 have been identified in several types of cancer, including cervical, breast, pancreatic, and gastric cancers. HSP47 may promote tumor angiogenesis, growth, migration, and metastatic capacity.
