Mouse anti HSF1 antibody, clone CD01/1B5 recognizes heat shock factor protein 1.

HSF1 is a stress-induced DNA-binding transcription factor that plays a critical role in the heat shock response, protecting cells from cellular damage. In unstressed cells, HSF1 is found in a chaperone complex that maintains it in a non-DNA-binding form. Under conditions of temperature stress or other environmental perturbations, HSF1 translocates from the cytosol to the nucleus where it promotes transcription of heat shock proteins (HSPs) (Li et al. 2017). HSF1 is constitutively activated in malignant cells, and cancer cells become dependent on HSF1 for growth and survival. Furthermore, high levels of HSF1 have been found to correlate with poor clinical outcomes in some cancer types (Carpenter et al. 2017). HSF1 has been suggested as a target for cancer therapy (Dai 2018).
