[HCG28-P03] Searching for water stress proteins in terrestrial cyanobacteria, Nostoc sp. HK-01
Keywords:cyanobacteria, desiccation tolerance, stress protein
In this study, we searched for the genes that would play an important role in the desiccation stress response. Initially, to investigate expression changes of the proteins in Nostoc sp. HK-01 cells, proteins of the desiccated cells were analyzed by SDS-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The cells were dried in a desiccator. In the course of desiccation of the cells, the expression level of some proteins was increased.
