Small heat shock proteins (sHSPs) are the most ubiquitous HSP subgroup with molecular weights ranging from 12 to 42 kDa. We have cloned a new sHSP gene, AsHSP17 from creeping bentgrass (Agrostis stolonifera) and studied the role it plays in plant response to environmental stress. AsHSP17 encodes a protein of 17 kDa. Its expression was strongly induced in both leaf and root tissues by...
