Hsps not only keep proteins in their native state but also involve in several essential biochemical process. This review summarizes structural properties of Hsps (Hsp70, Hsp40, Hsp90, Hsp100, Hsp60, sHsps, and Nucleotide Exchange Factors) and explains their roles in aging, apoptosis, cancer, neurodegeneration, cardio-vascular diseases, obesity and diabetes mellitus, and housekeeping.
