Constitutive expression of a somatic heat-inducible hsp70 gene during amphibian oogenesis.

Abstract

We isolated and characterized a sequence coding for heat-shock protein 70 (HSP70) of the amphibian Pleurodeles waltl. Results from S1 nuclease protection assays led us to conclude that an hsp70 gene, strictly inducible in somatic cells during heat shock, is constitutively active during oogenesis. By quantitative northern and western blot analysis, we showed… (More)
