Overexpression of a novel SbMYB15 from Salicornia brachiata confers salinity and dehydration tolerance by reduced oxidative damage and improved photosynthesis in transgenic tobacco.
Bhāvnagar, India. In Planta, Dec 2015
In the transgenic plants, the expression of stress-responsive genes such as LEA5, ERD10D, PLC3, LTP1, HSF2, ADC, P5CS, SOD and CAT was enhanced in the presence of salinity, dehydration and heat.
HSF2 autoregulates its own transcription.
Kwangju, South Korea. In Int J Mol Med, Oct 2015
Heat shock factor 2 (HSF2) is one of the most important regulators affecting stress mechanisms, and is frequently amplified in the ubiquitin proteasome pathway.
Heat shock factors at a crossroad between stress and development.
Turku, Finland. In Ann N Y Acad Sci, 2007
Mammals have three different HSFs that have been considered functionally distinct: HSF1 is essential for the heat shock response and is also required for developmental processes, whereas HSF2 and HSF4 are important for differentiation and development.
Heat shock response: lessons from mouse knockouts.
Toulouse, France. In Handb Exp Pharmacol, 2005
Yet Hsf2 knockouts by three independent laboratories have not fully clarified the role of mammalian HSF2 for normal development, fertility, and postnatal neuronal function.
Regulation of heat shock gene transcription in neuronal cells.
Boston, United States. In Int J Hyperthermia, 2005
HSF1 transcriptional activity has been discussed in neuronal cells, concentrating on the regulation and activity of HSF1 and HSF2 and their role in HSP expression, during neurodegenerative diseases and as mediators of cell survival.
Mechanism of hsp70i gene bookmarking.
Lexington, United States. In Science, 2005
results show hsp70i bookmarking is mediated by HSF2 which binds this promoter in mitotic cells, recruits protein phosphatase 2A & interacts with the CAP-G subunit of condensin to promote dephosphorylation & inactivation of condensin complexes
