HSP70 is involved in the control of chromosomal transcription in the amphibian oocyte.


The amphibian oocyte represents an excellent model for the study of transcription regulation. Indeed, any modification of transcriptional activity is directly reflected in lampbrush chromosome structure by concomitant morphological changes. Previous studies have led to the hypothesis of a putative role for heat-shock proteins HSP70 and/or HSC70 in… (More)
