Recently there has been a need for more frequent supervision of the environment. For the purpose of biomonitoring there is a constant search for the most suitable biomarkers. One of those are Heat shock proteins (HSP). HSP, especially Hsp70 family are ubiquitous proteins that are evolutionarily conserved in almost all organisms, their genes are easy to isolate and identify in the genome. They react to non-functional proteins with increased up-regulation. For a long period that was associated with cellular stress response due to environmental pollution. Today, researches have showed that up-regulation of Hsp70 proteins does not necessarily have to be triggered by the presence of toxic substances and that there is a need for better understanding of complexity of the HSP response to stress, and moreover for better understanding of the physiology of the selected model organism. 11
