chaperonopathies BACKGROUND

 

 

background3 background1 background2

Many common diseases, and others not as frequent, can have as a primary cause, or at least as a determinant cofactor, a defective chaperone: the abnormal chaperone is part of the pathogenic mechanism. Thus, elucidation of this mechanism will make treatment more adequate, more specific. The point is to ascertain whether in any given patient one or more molecular chaperones are involved in causing the disease. The signs and symptoms may be the same in various patients, thus leading to a standard diagnosis of a known pathological condition, distal motor neuropathy, for instance. However, some of these patients may have a chaperonopathy as part of the pathogenic mechanism whereas the others may not. This should be investigated by the clinician. A differential diagnosis exercise should be conducted to classify the patients into groups, depending on whether or not they have a chaperonopathy. It follows, that those patients that do have a chaperonopathy will be different from those that do not and will show distinctive signs and symptoms. These distinctive features must be unveiled by the physician by resorting to specific clinical and laboratory examinations.
The physician and the laboratory pathologist must be aware that there are various classes of chaperones, and that members of all these classes can be pathogenic if abnormal in structure and/or function. The specific manifestations of any given class of chaperone that is abnormal may be the same in patients which otherwise differ in signs and symptoms and, vice versa, patients with very similar signs and symptoms may differ in the class of chaperone which is abnormal. However, there are useful indicators that allow identification of chaperonopathies and of the class of chaperone that is abnormal. All this is explained in the book “The Chaperonopathies” (http://www.springer.com/biomed/book/978-94-007-4666-4) of which this Webpage is a complement. In addition, more information is available in works in the public domain; some of these resources are listed below.
