Cell stress is broadly defined to include cellular responses to heat shock, oxidative stress, heavy metals and toxic chemicals.

Molecular chaperones include not only the traditional heat shock proteins but other proteins which assist protein folding and participate in cell defenses. Changes in environment, injury,
