Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are a group of proteins that promote protein folding, inhibit denaturation of cellular proteins, and maintain other proteins' functional activities when cells are subjected to stress and/or high temperature. HSP classification is generally based on their molecular weights into large and small HSP. The family of small HSPs includes HSPs 27, 40, 60, 70, and 90. The potential roles of HSP27 and HSP70 are quite evident in different solid malignancies, including breast, colorectal, pancreatic, and liver cancers. In this chapter, the authors focus on HSP27 and HSP70 signaling in oncology and their role in different solid malignancies as well as they shed light on the novel role of HSP70 and HSP90 in the immune-oncology field. © 2022.
