Abstract

Two hsp90 cDNA isoforms (hsp90α and hsp90β) were isolated from the common carp (Cyprinus carpio). Gene-specific probes and primers were selected and used in Northern blot hybridization and RT-PCR reactions to measure the basal hsp90 mRNA levels and to follow the inducer-specific expression of the hsp90 genes in different tissues during in vivo studies. The hsp90β gene is largely constitutively expressed at a fairly high level in all the examined tissues (brain, liver and kidney) and is slightly inducible by an elevated temperature. Hsp90α mRNA is present in the brain, but is hardly detectable in the kidney and liver of unstressed animals. In the brain, this gene is greatly upregulated following thermal stress, whereas in the liver and kidney heat shock has only minor effects on its expression. Hsp90α, but not hsp90β, responds to an elevated level of Cd in a dose-, time- and tissue-dependent manner.
