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.
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.
