Heat-shock protein variability in maize

Maydica 33(1): 65-75

Heat-shock protein variability in maize

The heat shock proteins (HSPs) of 35 inbred lines were characterized by SDS-PAGE following in vivo labelling with 35S. A standard HSP pattern of 9 bands, present in all but one line, was defined, though 6 of these bands were present at reduced levels in a few lines. Various combinations of 10 additional bands were found in 28 lines.

Evidence suggests that heat shock proteins (HSP) may be involved in differences in thermal tolerance among perennial ryegrass (Lolium perenne L.) cultivars. It seems possible that HSP could be useful in developing laboratory assays for thermal tol...
