antifreeze proteins

antifreeze proteins

[′an·ti‚frēz ¦prō‚tēnz]
(biochemistry)
Proteins that decrease the nonequilibrium freezing point of water without significantly affecting the melting point by directly binding to the surface of an ice crystal, thereby disrupting its normal structure and growth pattern and inhibiting further ice growth; found in a number of fish, insects, and plants.

Other types of proteins include CRISPR and Cas9, which act like scissors and cut and paste DNA; antifreeze proteins, whose 3D structure allows them to bind to ice crystals and prevent organisms from freezing; and ribosomes that act like a programmed assembly line, which help build proteins themselves.

Antifreeze proteins (AFPs) or ice structuring proteins (ISPs) are produced by different organisms.
They produce antifreeze proteins that block the growth of nascent ice crystals within a narrow temperature range known as the thermal hysteresis gap enabling survival under extreme conditions.
Incorporating antifreeze proteins or peptides in ice cream in order to control recrystallization greatly enhances the ability to deliver smoother ice cream to consumers.
(2006) reported in their study on winter wheat leaves that SA and cold treatment might increase cold tolerance by increasing the accumulation of apoplastic proteins, which included antifreeze proteins and prevented formation of ice crystals.
The resin systems used in these coatings are modeled on the structures of antifreeze proteins that are known to inhibit the freezing of organisms such as arctic fish, according to Hirayama.
ZHAW's researchers have been investigating the antifreeze proteins (AFPs) possessed by plants, insects and fish and other animals to ensure their survival in the Artie and other areas with subzero temperatures.
Washington, March 4 (ANI): A new study has found that the same antifreeze proteins that keep organisms from freezing in cold environments also can prevent ice from melting at warmer temperatures.
