Heat shock

Heat shock proteins (HSPs) are a group of proteins that are present in all cells in all life forms. They have a variety of functions, but are mostly known as stress proteins because their expression is increased when the cells undergo various types of environmental stresses like heat, cold and oxygen deprivation.

Oxidative Stress

Research on human oxidative stress has led to links to many diseases such as atherosclerosis, Parkinson's disease and Alzheimer's disease and it may also be important in ageing. At the same time, reactive oxygen species can also be beneficial, as they are used by the immune system as a way to attack and kill pathogens.
