Heat shock proteins are produced in organisms in response to environmental stress. The current study focuses on the gorgonian Leptogorgia virgulata and its response to conditions of increased temperature. Specifically, we use protein labeling to examine the differential synthesis of proteins under normal and heat shock conditions. Additionally, we examine the gorgonian for production of two known heat shock proteins, hsp47 and ubiquitin, at various elevated temperatures using Western blotting.
