Heat shock protein 40 (Hsp40), a member of Heat shock proteins (Hsps) family, plays a crucial role in regulation of cell proliferation, survival and apoptosis in mammals. In this study, Hsp40, EcHsp40, was identified from Epinephelus coioides, an economically important marine-cultured fish in China and Southeast Asian counties. The full length of EcHsp40 was 2236 bp in length containing a 1026 bp open reading frame (ORF) encoding 341 amino acids, with a molecular mass of 37. Read More
