The key to successful transitions in several systems is the induction, during the oxygen-limited state, of elevated activities of antioxidant and associated enzymes, so that damage during the reintroduction of oxygen is minimized.

Metabolic rate depression in animals: transcriptional and translational controls
The role of differential gene expression in supplying protein products that adjust metabolism or protect cell functions for long‐term survival, and the mechanisms of protein life extension in hypometabolism involving inhibitory controls of transcription, translation and protein degradation are focused on.
Metabolic Rate Depression and Biochemical Adaptation in Anaerobiosis, Hibernation and Estivation
The present review focuses on the molecular control mechanisms that regulate and coordinate cellular metabolism for the transition into dormancy, which form a common molecular basis for metabolic depression in anoxia-tolerant vertebrates and invertebrates, hibernation in small mammals, and estivation in land snails and terrestrial toads.
Low toxic herbicide Roundup induces mild oxidative stress in goldfish tissues.
Mitogen-activated protein kinases: new signaling pathways functioning in cellular responses to environmental stress
The present article reviews the current understanding of the roles and regulation of ERKs, JNKs and p38, summarizes what is known to date about MAPK roles in animal models of anoxia tolerance, freeze tolerance and osmoregulation, and highlights the potential that studies of MAPK pathways have for advancing theUnderstanding of the mechanisms of biochemical adaptation.
Quantification of lipid peroxidation in tissue extracts based on Fe(III)xylenol orange complex formation.
Biochemistry of Cryoprotectants
The role of polyhydric alcohols in cryoprotection is probably the most extensively studied feature of insect cold hardiness. The importance of glycerol as a cryoprotectant was first recognized by R.…
