The expression of carbohydrate blood-group antigens correlates with heat-resistance

Abstract :

Recent data indicate that cells may resist heat shock via more than one route : heat shock protein synthesis and other still ill-defined mechanisms. We investigated this phenomenon using four types of cells derived from a single rat colon carcinoma : clones REGb and PROb ; PRO A(+), a glycosylation variant of PROb selected for its high expression of blood group A antigen ; and Phs, a thermoresistant variant of PROb selected by repeated sublethal heat treatments. Basal heat resistance was clearly associated with the level of cell surface expression of blood group H and A antigens.
