First paragraph (this article has no abstract)
Molecular chaperone or heat shock proteins (HSP) are vital proteins that increase cell survival by allowing it to combat stress caused by injurious stimuli through certain cyto-protective mechanisms . These cyto-protective mechanisms of molecular chaperones, especially HSP 90 , have a negative effect designated to favor tumor growth and metastasis among breast cancer, leukemia, pancreatic and ovarian cancer [3,4].
