A protective mechanism used by cells to adapt to stress of the endoplasmic reticulum (ER) is the induction of members of the glucose-regulated protein (Grp) family. The induction of mammalian Grp proteins in response to ER stress involves a complex network of regulators and novel mechanisms. The elucidation of Grp function and regulation opens up new therapeutic approaches to diseases associated with ER stress and cancer.
