The most abundant heat shock protein in many organisms is a 70kDa protein called HSP70. In E. colithere is a single HSP70-related protein, the product of the dnaK gene. However, in most, if not all, eucaryotes, HSP70 is one of a family of related proteins. HSP70 families are usually composed of proteins that are expressed only after stress and those that are present under optimal growth conditions.
