Stress can originate from a variety of sources (e.g., physical, chemical, etc.,) and cause protein denaturation, DNA damage and possibly death. In an effort to prevent such deleterious consequences, most organisms possess one or more ways to counteract or even prevent the harmful effect(s) from a given stressor. Such compensation by an organism is known as a stress response; this involves inhibition of housekeeping genes and subsequent activation of genes associated with the stress response… CONTINUE READING
