Heat Shock Proteins and the Regulation of Heat Shock Gene Expression in Eukaryotes

The first chapter is devoted to the general description of stress proteins and peculiarities of their expression in eukaryotic cells and to the modern views of the problem of “negative regulation” of heat shock gene transcription.

The 70kDa heat inducible proteins (hsp70s) are a highly conserved family of proteins found in every organism examined and involved in the movement of proteins into and through various compartments of the eukaryotic cell.

Stress response regulation and protein aggregate inheritance in Caulobacter crescentus

Many stress conditions a cell encounters threaten the continuation of basic biological processes ultimately endangering its survival. Heat shock and antibiotic exposure can lead to a sudden surge o

Heat Shock Proteins (HSPs): Structure, Function and Genetics

Heat shock proteins are evolutionarily well-conserved, ATP-binding proteins that function as molecular chaperones in facilitating protein folding and degradation. They are expressed constitutively in

Autoregulation of the Heat-Shock Response

The heat-shock proteins (hsps) were initially defined as a small set of proteins that are rapidly and dramatically induced when cells or whole organisms are exposed to high temperatures1–5 (see Fig.

Thermotolerance and heat shock proteins: possible involvement of Ku autoantigen in regulating Hsp70 expression.

The phenomenon of thermotolerance and permanent heat resistance in mammalian cells is characterized and a novel constitutive HSE-binding factor that appears to be involved in the regulation of the heat shock response is described.



Heat shock proteins and thermal resistance in yeast.

Small heat shock proteins in Drosophila may confer thermal tolerance.

70K heat shock related proteins stimulate protein translocation into microsomes

A yeast cytosol is shown to contain two distinct activities that stimulate protein translocation across microsomal membranes that increase the rate of translocation.

A protein antigen of Mycobacterium leprae is related to a family of small heat shock proteins

The gene encoding an immunologically important 18-kilodalton protein antigen of Mycobacterium leprae has been sequenced, and the amino acid sequence of the antigen has been deduced. The 18-kilodalton

Participation of Escherichia coli K-12 groE gene products in the synthesis of cellular DNA and RNA

Cells having the temperature-sensitive mutation groES131(Ts) were isolated from Escherichia coli K-12 strain C600T by thymineless death selection, rendering cells unable to propagate phage lambda at permissive temperature.

An ancient developmental induction: heat-shock proteins induced in sporulation and oogenesis.

A strikingly similar pattern of expression occurs during oogenesis in Drosophila, suggesting that it may be one of the earliest developmental pathways to evolve in eukaryotic cells.

Genetic suppression of a temperature-sensitive groES mutation by an altered subunit of RNA polymerase of Escherichia coli K-12

Temperature-resistant suppressor mutants were isolated from Escherichia coli mutant strain groES131(Ts). Phage P1-mediated transduction and a two-dimensional gel electrophoretic analysis of cellular

The 70‐kd mammalian heat shock proteins are structurally and functionally related to the uncoating protein that releases clathrin triskelia from coated vesicles.

It is shown that in immunological, structural and functional terms the uncoating protein, which catalyses ATP‐dependent dissociation of clathrin triskelia from clathrin‐coated vesicles is intimately

A normal mitochondrial protein is selectively synthesized and accumulated during heat shock in Tetrahymena thermophila

A 58-kilodalton protein of Tetrahymena thermophila whose synthesis during heat shock parallels that of the major heat shock proteins is identified and it is suggested that this protein may play a role in mitochondria analogous to the role the majorHeat shock proteins play in the nucleus and cytosol.
