...Azadeh Tafreshiha; Sven A. van der Burg; Kato Smits; Laila A. Blömer; J. Alexander Heimel ABSTRACT Innate defensive responses such as freezing or escape are essential for animal survival. Mice show defensive behaviour to stimuli sweeping overhead, like a bird cruising the sky. Here, we tested...

Low temperature is known to alter membrane integrity in insects, but whether chilling or freezing compromises DNA integrity remains a matter of speculation. In the present study, we subjected...

...Bishwo N. Adhikari; Diana H. Wall; Byron J. Adams SUMMARY Nematodes are the dominant soil animals of the Antarctic Dry Valleys and are capable of surviving desiccation and freezing in an anhydrobiotic state. Genes induced by desiccation stress have been successfully enumerated in nematodes; however...

In a second experiment, these two concentrations were then tested for their ability to induce freezing, a species-specific defensive response. Only TMT but not butyric acid induced freezing in the rats. This supports the hypothesis...

However, the concept of natural freeze-tolerance in neonatal painted...
