Although ubiquitous in all haloarchaea, little is known about the transcription and regulation of the haloarchaeal hsp70. The purpose of this study is to investigate the transcription of the haloarchaeal hsp70 gene in Natrinema sp. J7 under the temperature and osmotic stress. The hsp70 gene was found to be both temperature- and osmotic-induced, while the response of hsp70 to cold shock was stronger than that to heat shock. Western blot analysis corroborated the similar results at the level of… CONTINUE READING
