Small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) associate with nuclei, cytoskeleton and membranes, and as molecular chaperones they bind partially denatured proteins, thereby preventing irreversible protein aggregation during stress. In the present study, the small heat shock proteins of Tegillarca granosa (Tg-sHSP) were identified from hemocytes by 3' and 5' rapid amplification of cDNA ends (RACE) PCR. The full-length cDNA consisted of 1005 bp with a 594 bp open reading frame encoding 197 amino acids… CONTINUE READING
