The major stress-inducible 70 kDa heat shock (stress) protein 70 (Hsp70) is frequently overexpressed in highly aggressive tumor cells and thus might serve as a tumor-specific biomarker of aggressive disease. We have previously shown that, in contrast to normal cells, tumor cells present Hsp70 on their plasma membrane. In order to elucidate the role of intracellular and membrane-bound Hsp70 as a potential tumor biomarker in glioblastoma multiforme, herein, we describe protocols for the staining of cytosolic Hsp70 in tumor formalin fixed paraffin-embedded (FFPE) sections using immunohistochemistry, and for plasma membrane-bound Hsp70 by multi-parametric flow cytometry using the cmHsp70.1 monoclonal antibody (mAb).
