Contents of hsp70 in control or heat-shocked mouse, rat, and human islets
Precultured mouse, rat, and human islets were incubated for 30 min at either 37 or 41°C and then incubated another 6 hr at 37°C. Islets were then taken for immunoblot experiments as given in Materials and Methods. Values are means ± SEM for eight (non-heat-shock) or four (heat-shock) experiments. *p < 0.05 versus corresponding control islets using Students t test. +p < 0.01 versus non-heat-shocked mouse or rat islets using ANOVA and Fishers PLSD test.
