Sublethal heat and ethanol exposure induce essentially identical stress responses in yeast. These responses are characterized by the induction of heat shock proteins, proteins requiring a temperature above about 35 degrees C or ethanol levels above a threshold level of 4-6% (v/v) for strong induction. One induced protein, Hsp104, contributes to both thermotolerance and ethanol tolerance, while others are anti-oxidant enzymes. Heat and ethanol stress cause similar changes to plasma membrane… CONTINUE READING
