Figure 6

Real-Time Relative qPCR analysis of the expression of some putative stress-response genes in Panagrolaimus superbus following 12 h of desiccation at 98% RH. The following transcripts were tested: PSC03116: small heat shock protein (sHSP) family member; PSC01018 sHSP family member; PSC02842 HSP40/DNaJ protein family member; PSC00673 HSP70 family member; PSC02695 cyclophilin family member; PSC00740 protein disulfide isomerase; PSC00782 LEA3 protein; PSC01853 putative LEA3 protein; PSC00514 LEA3 protein; PSC02304 DJ-1; PSC03895 1-Cys peroxiredoxin; PSC02494 gluthatione peroxidase; PSC04819 gluthatione peroxidase; PSC02624 glutathione S-transferase (sigma class); PSC04040 glutathione S-transferase (kappa class); PSC01063 aldehyde dehydrogenase; PSC01095 aldehyde dehydrogenase; PSC01029 aquaporin; PSC01468; RIC1 putative stress responsive protein. The reference genes were the P. superbus 60S ribosomal protein L32 and ama-1 genes. Statistically significant differences (Student's t test) are indicated, **p < 0.001.
