All organisms show a common defensive mechanism that results in the expression of conserved heat shock proteins (Hsps). These proteins function in a wide range of stressful conditions. We have monitored their levels in species of regenerating echinoderms with different mechanisms of regeneration and from different geographical locations. The effect of an artificial higher temperature on expression of Hsps was also studied. Two stress proteins (Hsp72 and ubiquitin) that are important in… CONTINUE READING
