Investigation of the role of anti-freeze glyco-proteins in the circulation system of Antarctic fish
Entry ID: K014_2009_2010_NZ_1

Abstract: In order to investigate how Antarctic fish deal with ice in their blood circulatory system, Trematomus bernacchii and Pagothenia borchgrevinki Antarctic fish were captured for experimental investigation. A variety of biochemical techniques were used to isolate Anti-Freeze Glyco-Proteins (AFGPs) from Antarctic fish blood, which was then conjugated directly to a fluorescent marker. We synthesised ...
