HSP expression in bivalves

  title={HSP expression in bivalves},
  author={Elena Fabbri and Paola Valbonesi and Silvia Franzellitti},
One of the molecular responses which mostly contribute to the physiological plasticity of bivalves is the heat shock response mediated by heat shock proteins (HSP). Variations of HSP response were observed under environmental conditions, correlated with differences in environmental temperature and degree of heterogeneity across geographic thermal gradients and through time. Laboratory experiments characterized the expressions of different protein isoforms and coding genes, which are induced by… CONTINUE READING
