Constitutive expression of small heat shock proteins in vegetative tissues of the resurrection plant <Emphasis Type="Italic">Craterostigma plantagineum</Emphasis>


Using antibodies raised against two sunflower small heat shock proteins (sHSPs), we have detected immunologically related proteins in unstressed vegetative tissues from the resurrection plant Craterostigma plantagineum. In whole plants, further accumulation of these polypeptides was induced by heat-shock or water-stress. In desiccation-intolerant… (More)
