Abstract

The cDNA sequence of a small heat shock protein (hsp19.7) was cloned and sequenced from the rice stem borer, Chilo suppressalis Walker. The cDNA encoded a protein of 177 amino acids with a calculated molecular weight of 19.7 kDa. The deduced amino acid sequence showed the highest identity of 90% to Bombyx morihsp19.9. Expression levels of hsp19.7 were similar between diapausing and non-diapausing larvae. In non-diapausing larvae, but not in diapausing ones, hsp19.7 expression was upregulated by cold acclimation. Involvement of hsp19.7 in larval diapause and cold tolerance in C. suppressalis is discussed.
