The major animal responses to acute shock are known to involve changes in gene transcription and translation of heat shock protein (HSPs) .

Abstract

The major animal responses to acute shock are known to involve changes in gene transcription and translation of heat shock protein (HSPs) . HSPs show different roles as chaperones in normal and damaged protein folding and in maintenance of receptor conformation. Marine littoral invertebrates tolerate a remarkable array of natural stresses, including anoxia, thermal and osmotic fluctuations. Several of these environmental stresses are responsible of HSP induction, that contribute to the tolerance of otherwise lethal conditions. This study was aimed at detecting HSP70 expression in Chamelea gallina tissues in response to oxygen, temperature and salinity changes.
