In the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae, the molecular chaperone Hsp26 is one component of the heat-shock response. Hsp26 has the remarkable ability to directly sense increases in temperature and switch from an inactive state to a chaperone-active state. In this study, we report a functional analysis of Hsp26 in Arabidopsis thaliana and its response to freezing stress. After freezing stress, the HSP26 transgenic plants exhibited stronger growth than the wild-type plants. We found that over… CONTINUE READING
