The functions of cytosolic heat shock protein AtHsp90.3 in response to heavy metal stress were characterized by using expression of AtHsp90.3 gene in yeast and Arabidopsis thaliana. AtHsp90.3 supported the Saccharomyces cerevisiae Hsp90 knockout strain R0005 growth and maintaining cells membrane integrity under cadmium and arsenic stresses, which was… CONTINUE READING
