The heat shock response (HSR) was characterized in the gills of two lamprey species that differ with respect to their adult life history. In vivo labelling with [35S]methionine revealed an enhanced synthesis of heat shock proteins (HSPs) having approximate molecular weights of 70 kDa (HSP70) and 90 kDa (HSP90) following heat treatment. Induction of the HSR occurred in larval lampreys (ammocoetes) following temperature elevations of 13-16 degrees C for the parasitic species, the sea lamprey… CONTINUE READING
