All organisms respond to elevated temperatures and a variety of environmental stresses by rapid synthesis of heat shock RNAs and proteins. The regulation of heat shock gene transcription is mediated by the transcriptional activator, heat shock factor (HSF), which binds to heat shock response elements (HSEs). HSF1 exists constitutively in the cytoplasm and the nucleus of unstressed cells as a monomer which lacks DNA binding activity. Through an unknown signal generated during stress, HSF1 becomes activated to a nuclear localized, trimeric state which binds to DNA. The phosphorylation of HSF1 is necessary for maximal transcription of heat shock genes.
