Objective: Tumor cells, in contrast to non-neoplastic cells, have the capacity to translocate cytosolic heat shock protein 70 (Hsp70) on their plasma membrane in different cancer types where it can be detected specifically by cmHsp70.1 monoclonal antibody. The biological function of membrane Hsp70 remains[for full text, please go to the a.m. URL]
