Prokaryotes and eukaryotes respond to heat shock and other forms of environmental stress by inducing synthesis of heat-shock proteins (Hsp). The 90 kDa Hsp90 is found in bacteria and eukaryotes. It is a chaperone protein that assists other proteins to fold properly, stabilizes proteins against heat stress, and aids in protein degradation . Hsp90 contains four domains and forms homodimers where the contact sites are localized within the C-terminus in the open conformation of the dimer, while the N-termini come into contact only in the closed conformation.
Asp f 12 is an IgE-binding Hsp90 from the mould Aspergillus fumigatus .
Family-defining Pfam domains (at least one of these domains is present in each family member):
