Functional Differentiation of Small Heat Shock Proteins in Diapause-Destined Artemia Embryos

…Encysted embryos of Artemia franciscana cease development and enter diapause, a state of metabolic suppression and enhanced stress tolerance. The development of diapause-destined Artemia embryos is characterized by the coordinated synthesis of the small heat shock proteins (sHsps) p26, ArHsp21 and ArHsp22, the latter stress inducible in adults. The amounts of sHsp mRNA and protein varied…
