Linkages among Mitochondrial Form, Function and Thermal Tolerance of Antarctic Notothenioid Fishes
Entry ID: NSF-ANT07-41301

Abstract: Antarctic notothenioid fishes have evolved in the Southern Ocean for 10-14 MY under an unusual set of circumstances. Their characteristics include the complete absence of the circulating oxygen-binding protein, hemoglobin (Hb) within the Channichthyid (Icefish) family of notothenioids.
