Lipopolysaccharide stimulation of 70 kilo Dalton heat shock protein messenger ribonucleic acid production in cultured human fetal membranes
HSP70 Heat-Shock Proteins
Human fetal membranes constitutively express heat shock protein 70 messenger ribonucleic acid. Bacterial lipopolysaccharide markedly stimulated heat shock protein 70 messenger RNA gene transcription in human fetal membranes. Thus, heat shock protein 70 is inducible in fetal membranes and may facilitate fetal survival under adverse conditions.
