Applications of type I antifreeze proteins: Studies with model membranes & cryoprotectant properties

Inglis, Steven R; Turner, Jennifer J; Harding, Margaret

Description

Antifreeze proteins (AFPs) and antifreeze glycoproteins (AFGPs), found in the body fluids of many species of polar fish allow them to survive in waters colder than the equilibrium freezing point of their blood and other internal fluids. Despite their structural diversity, all AF(G)Ps kinetically depress the temperature at which ice grows in a non-colligative manner and hence exhibit thermal hysteresis. AF(G)Ps also share the ability to interact with and protect mammalian cells and tissues from...[Show more]
