Definition The gene on chromosome 14q32.33 that encodes heat shock protein 90kDa alpha (cytosolic)—class A member 1 (OMIM: 140571, UniProtKB: P07900), an inducible homodimeric molecular chaperone with intrinsic ATPase activity, which aids proper folding of specific target proteins. HSP90AA1 promotes the maturation, structural maintenance and proper regulation of client proteins involved in cell cycle control and signal transduction and other processes.

Synonyms HSP86, HSPC1, HSP 86, HSPCA, HSP89A, HSP90A, HSPCAL4, HSP90N, LAP2, Hsp89, FLJ31884, Hsp90, HSPCAL1, HSPN, heat shock 90kD protein 1, alpha-like 4, heat shock 86 kDa, heat shock 90kD protein, alpha-like 4, renal carcinoma antigen NY-REN-38, heat shock protein HSP 90-alpha
