HSC70, or Heat shock protein family A (Hsp70) member 8, is a human gene encoded by HSPA8. It may also be known as: Heat shock cognate 71 kDa protein; Heat shock 70 kDa protein 8; Lipopolysaccharide-associated protein 1; LAP-1; LPS-associated protein 1; HEL-33; HEL-S-72p; HSC54; HSC71; HSP71; HSP73; HSPA10; NIP71; heat shock 70kDa protein 8. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 646 and a mass of 70.9 kDa. HSC70 is a member of the Heat shock protein 70 family. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Chicken.
