Structured_description Provisional_description (7)
Concise_descriptionhsp-16.1 encodes a 16-kD heat shock protein (HSP) that is a member of the hsp16/hsp20/alphaB-crystallin (HSP16) family of heat shock proteins, and that is identical to the protein encoded by hsp-16.11; an hsp-16.1 reporter fusion, expressed broadly but most strongly in muscle and hypodermis, is induced solely in response to heat shock or other environmental stresses; expression is detectable in somatic tissues in post-gastrulation embryos, all larval stages, and in adults; HSP-16.1 is likely to function as a passive ligand temporarily preventing unfolded proteins from aggregating.

RemarkMap position created from combination of previous interpolated map position (based on known location of sequence) and allele information. Therefore this is not a genetic map position based on recombination frequencies or genetic experiments. This was done on advice of the CGC.CGC_data_submission
