The structural basis of their mechanism of action is being unravelled (in particular for the heat shock proteins HSP60, HSP70, HSP90 and HSP100) and typically involves massive displacements of 20-30 kDa domains over distances of 20-50 Å and rotations of up to 100°.

60-kD HSP (HSP60) is also shown to be recognized by pattern recognition receptors such as toll-like receptors (TLR) and is suggested to be an endogenous "danger" signal to the immune system with rapid inflammatory cytokine releases and enhancement of adaptive Th1-type responses.

analysis of multiple sclerosis GWAS data in conjunction with the 1000 Genomes Project data, shows genetic evidence that strongly implicates SNP rs1800693 as the causal variant in the TNFRSF1A region; further functional studies show that this MS risk allele directs expression of a novel, soluble form of TNFR1 that can block TNF
