The expression of stress protein 70 (hsp70) was studied in lichen photobiont Trebouxia erici during short-term exposition to cadmium and copper (0.0, 1.0, 5.0 and 10.0 μM). We found two isoforms of hsp70 in the untreated as well as in heavy metal-treated cells due to the maintenance of protein homeostasis. Cu-treated cells had a relatively constant amount of hsp70 over all the tested concentrations. However, Cd caused an increase in hsp70 expression, especially at the lowest concentration (1.0… CONTINUE READING
