Differing patterns of hsp70 gene expression in invasive and native kelp species: evidence for acclimation-induced variation

Temperature is one of the primary factors determining the geographic boundaries of seaweeds. Thus, investigations of how seaweeds cope with temperature stress and what affects their ability for range expansion are particularly important when studying invasive species. In physiological ecology, an established index of thermotolerance is the up-regulation of heat shock genes and subsequent synthesis of heat shock proteins (Hsps). The goal of this study was to examine the up-regulation of the… CONTINUE READING
