Accumulation of HSPs confers thermotolerance in cell cultures and in ectotherms and is an important component of the heat shock response. This response, however, has...

... is below 25°C. The R. exoculata optimal thermal habitat may thus be restricted to values lower than previously expected (<25°C). The heat-shock response is universal, as almost all organims studied to date are able to express heat-shock proteins (hsp; reviewed in Lindquist, 1986 ). Lindquist( 1986...
