Heat shock 70 kDa protein 4 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the HSPA4 gene.[1][2]

The protein encoded by this gene was originally suggested to be a member of the heat shock protein 70 family.[1] However it is now known that human HSPA4 is an equivalent to mouse the Apg-2 protein and is a member of the Hsp110 family.[3]


HSPA4 has been shown to interact with:
