Mammalian cells, when exposed to a nonlethal heat shock, have the ability to acquire a transient resistance to one or more subsequent exposures at elevated temperatures. This phenomenon has been termed thermotolerance (Gerner and Schneider ; Henle and Leeper ). Thermotolerance / Author: editor, Kurt J. Henle. Publication info: Boca Raton, Fla.: CRC Press, c Format: Book.   Thermal stress directly impacts on fungal strains ability to target arthropods and their environmental activity performance. The screening for fungal strains with a higher thermotolerance and the improvement on conidial formulations may aid in optimizing the conditions for biocontrol agent : Flávia R. S. Paixão, Éverton K.

Reducing the severity of HS in dairy cattle by genetic selection for increased thermotolerance is a largely unexplored strategy. The rectal temperature of animals under HS is heritable [. Induction of thermotolerance may be ascribed to maintenance of a better membrane thermostability and low ROS accumulation [36, 42] due to an improved antioxidant capacity. HS responses among plants are mainly due to their inherent ability to survive and also to acquire thermotolerance to lethal by: 1. Mild temperatures such as 40 °C are physiological and occur during fevers. This study determines whether mild thermotolerance induced at 40 °C can protect HeLa cells against activation of the death receptor pathway of apoptosis by lethal hyperthermia (42–45 °C).Cited by: Find a translation for the thermotolerance definition in other languages: Select another language: Select -. 简体中文 (Chinese - Simplified) 繁體中文 (Chinese - Traditional) Español (Spanish) Esperanto (Esperanto) 日本語 (Japanese).

Quantitative Trait Loci for Plant Thermotolerance Plant Metabolites Under Heat Stress Antioxidant Enzymes and Heat Stress Conclusion References 5 Alteration in Carbohydrate Metabolism Modulates Thermotolerance of Plant under Heat Stress 77 Roseline Xalxo, Bhumika Yadu, Jipsi Chandra, Vibhuti Chandrakar, and S.   Thermotolerance is a property of all organisms, but owing to their sessile nature, this trait is particularly important in plants. Basal thermotolerance is based on inherent tolerance to heat stress. Acquired thermotolerance is attained through stress-induced gene expression, often of those genes encoding heat shock proteins (HSPs).Cited by: 4. DnaJ proteins, which are molecular chaperones that are widely present in plants, can respond to various environmental stresses. At present, the function of DnaJ proteins was studied in many plant species, but only a few studies were conducted in tomato. Here, we examined the functions of a novel tomato (Solanum lycopersicum) DnaJ protein (SlDnaJ20) in heat tolerance using Cited by: 5. Thermotolerance. Thermotolerance is a response common to many organisms to heat stress. Exposure to elevated, sublethal temperatures induces thermotolerance, which protects the organism from another exposure to a normally lethal temperature. Such a phenomenon is attributed to the expression and synthesis of a group of proteins known as HSP.
