FunctionHSPB2, also known as MKBP is the most divergent member of the sHSP family with only 30% sequence identity to all other mammalian sHSPS . MKBP is known to associate specifically with myotonic dystrophy protein kinase (DMPK) in skeletal muscle. MKBP enhances the kinase activity of DMPK and protects it from heat-induced activation. MKBP also shows a unique nature compared to other sHSps, in that the expression of MKBP is not induced by heat shock . In unstressed skeletal muscle, MKBP forms large oligomeric complexes with HSPB3 in the cytosol which are localized on mitochondria and the neuromuscular junction . During stress, these complexes dissolve and MKBPs localization to mitochondria increases, leading to increased cell survival. Pinz et al. tried to find a distinct role for MKBP in terms of cardiac mechanics and finds that it is required for normal systolic performance and normal cardiac energetic . HSPB2 has also been found to be expressed in several cancer cell lines, including human breast cancer, suggesting that MKBP may be an important factor in tumor transformation and metastasis .
