ABSTRACT
This article focuses on a study related to characterization of the novel oesophageal specific heat shock protein SEP53. The oesophagus expresses a distinctive set of heat shock proteins. This study aims to determine the function and regulation of one of these proteins-squamous epithelial heat shock protein 53, and its relation to the disease process. In conclusion' SEP53 may be a calcium binding protein of the 5100 family. It is present in normal squamous oesophageal tissue but absent in most but not all Barrett's cases and its presence increases the viability of the stable cell line in the presence of deoxycholic acid.
