High temperature and water scarcity drastically influence adversely growth and production of pistachio (Pistacia vera). In this case, breeders have been faced this challenge between resistant to abiotic stress factors and high yield of varieties development. Understanding the responses of plants to abiotic stress factors will make significant contributions to solve this problem. Pistachio is among the important agricultural products for Turkey, which is grown in hot and dry regions during summer months. High temperature stress caused protein dysfunctions in plants. Small Heat Shock Proteins (sHSP) play an important role due to its function to protect the structures of denatured proteins against these stresses. In this study, we determined partial gene sequence of Small Heat Shock Protein from P. vera via degenerate primers prepared from National Center for Biotechnology Information. Herewith, it can be used for gene expression in abiotic stress studies in pistachio plants.
