In the present study an attempt was made to assess whether genetic variability in thermotolerance in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) was associated with the differential accumulation and expression of high molecular weight (HMW) and low molecular weight (LMW) heat shock proteins (HSPs). Seedlings of wheat cvs. HD 2285 and UP 2338 (temperature tolerant) and cvs. HD 2428 and HD 2329 (temperature susceptible) were subjected to a gradual temperature induction (30°C,1h⇒33°C,1h⇒37°C,2h) followed by a… Expand
