DNAJC7 is a member of the DNAJ heat shock protein 40 family. This family is characterized by two N-terminal tetratricopeptide repeat domains and a C-terminal DNAJ domain. DNAJC7 functions as a co-chaperone regulating the molecular chaperones HSP70 and HSP90 in folding of steroid receptors, such as the glucocorticoid receptor and the progesterone receptor. There are pseudogenes of this gene on chromosomes 1 and 6. Multiple transcript variants of DNAJC7 exist from alternate splicing.

DNAJC7 was one of numerous potential early detection biomarkers specific to triple-negative breast cancer in multiple pathways identified.
- Discovery and preliminary confirmation of novel early detection biomarkers for triple-negative breast cancer using preclinical plasma samples from the Women's Health Initiative observational study.
- Plasma biomarker profiles differ depending on breast cancer subtype but RANTES is consistently increased.
