The heat shock response has been characterized by the induction of major heat shock proteins that suppress protein aggregation by facilitating protein folding. Recently, we found that mammalian heat shock factor 1, a master regulator of HSP genes, regulates non-HSP genes that suppress protein aggregation by controlling protein degradation in cooperation with the transcription factor NFAT.
