: HSP90α is a member of the HSP90 family of proteins which are important molecular chaperones involved in signal transduction, cell cycle control, stress management, folding, degradation, and transport of proteins (1). HSP90 is a molecular chaperone that plays a key role in the conformational maturation of oncogenic signaling proteins, including HER2/ERBB2, AKT, RAF1, BCR-ABL and mutated p53. HSP90 inhibitors bind to HSP90, and induce the proteasomal degradation of HSP90 client proteins. HSP90α is an important mediator of cancer cell invasion and is expressed extracellularly on fibrosarcoma and breast cancer cells where it interacts with MMP2 (2).
