Hsp70 and hsp60 are molecular chaperones, or “abundant, well-conserved proteins responsible for the maintenance of the conformational homeostasis of cellular proteins and RNAs” and are believed to be usually induced by environmental stress (Soti & Csermely, “Molecular Chaperones” 227). In short, as molecular chaperones are often associated with aging tissues and aging in general, these proteins are especially found in such situations. There is, however, a debate whether their presence in the aging tissue is merely induced or it is this presence that induces aging.
