During normal development in D. melanogaster, messenger RNAs for three of the seven heat shock proteins (hsp83, hsp28 and hsp26) accumulate in adult ovaries and are abundant in embryos until blastoderm. The three mRNAs appear to originate in nurse cells and subsequently pass, during stages 10-11, into the oocyte. Little if any of the four other heat shock mRNAs is present in unshocked ovaries or embryos at any time examined. Pre-blastoderm embryos fail to accumulate these heat shock mRNAs even… CONTINUE READING
