Heat shock proteins are a distinctive class of proteins that have
evolved to cope with stress and to provide cellular defense against
a wide range of cell injuries. Cellular stress responses include a
transient rearrangement of functional activities in order to
protect and maintain essential cellular functions. The science of
stress responses in various renal diseases is a new and still
evolving medical discipline which offers the prospect of new
alternate therapeutic options. This publication provides basic
information about the important role of stress proteins in several
renal diseases, ranging from hypoxic injuries to fibrotic renal
disorders and tumors. Each chapter is written in a clear but
concise style and includes illustrations necessary to highlight
essential biological pathways which have been discovered during the
past few years. Providing an overview of contemporary issues, this
book will be a useful reference book for clinicians and basic
researchers in the fields of cell biology, pathology and nephrology
who are either involved in dealing with patients suffering from
various renal diseases or in defining various stress responses
during tissue injury and subsequent organ damage.
