Spondyloarthritis is an autoinflammatory rheumatic disease in which arthritis and osteoproliferation lead the patients who suffer from it to chronic disability. This disease is associated with the expression of class I MHC molecule HLA-B27, which tends to be misfolded in the endoplasmic reticulum and, therefore, expressed in aberrant forms. This phenomena lead to endoplasmic reticulum stress, which in time, evokes a whole response to cellular injury. Under these conditions, the mol- ecules involved in restoring cell homeostasis play a key role. Such is the case of the “heat-shock proteins”, which usually regulate protein folding, but also have important immunomodulatory functions, as well as some roles in tissue modeling. In this review, we attempt to summarize the involvement of cell stress and heat-shock proteins in the homeostatic disturbances and pathological conditions associated with this disease.
