The Hsp90 mosaic: a picture emerges

Nat Struct Mol Biol. 2009 Jan;16(1):2-6. doi: 10.1038/nsmb0109-2.


Hsp90s, molecular chaperones critically involved in many essential cellular processes, were the focus of a recent international conference held in Seeon, Germany. The scope of the conference ranged from structural and mechanistic insights all the way to medical applications.
