Quantitative expression of maize HSPs: genetic dissection and association with thermotolerance

  author={Carla Frova and Mirella Sari Gorla},
  journal={Theoretical and Applied Genetics},
In higher plants, within-species qualitative polymorphism for heat shock proteins (HSPs) is extremely rare, even between genotypes showing different heritable levels of thermotolerance. Here we have explored the amount of quantitative variability in HSP synthesis in maize. We have analyzed the quantitative expression of the typical HSPs in a set of recombinant inbreds (RIs) derived from the f1 hybrid between a thermotolerant (T232)- and a thermosensitive (CM37)-genotype, characterized for about… CONTINUE READING
