Although nSBs do not coincide with the sites of hsp70 and hsp90 transcription (Jolly et al. 1997), the observations that nSBs relocalize to the same sites upon repeated heat shocks and that the number of nSBs correlates with ploidy of the cell have indicated a physical association with chromosomal structures (Jolly et al. 1997, 1999). Interestingly, studies by Denegri and coworkers (2002) and Jolly and coworkers (2002) located the nucleation sites of nSBs to human chromosomes 9, 12, and 15, with the 9q12 region comprising the main site.

1998; Voeltz et al. 2002). Upon entering the ER lumen, these nascent proteins must undergo different folding and modification processes to produce fully functional proteins before leaving the ER to their final destinations. ER resident chaperons such as Grp78 (BiP) and Grp98 associate with nascent proteins in the lumen as they emerge from the pores of the ER. Some chaperones assist in folding nascent proteins – ER molecular chaperons, such as calnexin and calreticulum, bind to folding intermediates to facilitate the completion of folding – while others keep proteins from aggregating.

1995). Disruption of hsf3 in chicken DT40 cells caused remarkable inhibition in stress-induced heat shock gene expression, providing compelling evidence for a dominant role of HSF3 in avian heat shockinduced transcription. Recently, Inouye and coworkers (2003) demonstrated that chicken HSF1 has little potential to activate transcription of heat shock genes, because of a unique alanine-rich stretch present in the N-terminus of cHSF1. Nevertheless, cHSF1 is not fully dispensable in the heat shock response, since it prominently protects cells against stress-induced cell death.
