Heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) plays important roles in neural protection from stress by assisting cellular protein folding. In this review we discuss the current understanding of inducible and constitutive Hsp70 in maintaining and protecting neuronal synaptic function under normal and stressed conditions.
