    Elizabeth R Waters
    Department of Biology, San Diego State University, 5500 Campanile Dr, San Diego, CA 92182 4614, USA
    Mol Phylogenet Evol 29:456-63. 2003
    ..In this review I summarize the current knowledge of a variety of physiological and biochemical adaptations to land including plant growth hormones, isoprene, phenolics, and heat shock proteins...
  2. ncbi request reprint The Arabidopsis ClpB/Hsp100 family of proteins: chaperones for stress and chloroplast development
    Ung Lee
    Department of Biochemistry and Molecular Biophysics, University of Arizona, Tucson, AZ 85721, USA
    Plant J 49:115-27. 2007
    ..Thus, in plants, the function of ClpB/Hsp100 proteins is not restricted to heat stress, but a specific member of the family provides housekeeping functions that are essential to chloroplast development...
  3. pmc Comparative analysis of the small heat shock proteins in three angiosperm genomes identifies new subfamilies and reveals diverse evolutionary patterns
    Elizabeth R Waters
    Department of Biology, San Diego State University, 5500 Campanile Drive, San Diego, CA 92182, USA
    Cell Stress Chaperones 13:127-42. 2008
    ..This was due to an expansion of the cytosolic I sHSPs that was not seen in the other two species. Our analysis indicates that the sHSPs are a dynamic protein family in angiosperms with unexpected levels of diversity...

    Elizabeth R Waters
    Department of Biology, San Diego State University, San Diego, CA 92122, USA

    J Exp Bot 64:391-403. 2013
    ..Considerable progress has been made during the last 15 years in understanding the sHSPs. However, answers to many important questions remain elusive, suggesting that the next 15 years will be at least equally rewarding...
