It is unknown whether Antarctic fishes can defend themselves against oxidative stress induced by elevations in temperature. We hypothesized that Antarctic icefishes, lacking the oxygen-binding(More)
Yeast flavohemoglobin, YHb, encoded by the nuclear gene YHB1, has been implicated in both the oxidative and nitrosative stress responses in Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Previous studies have shown that(More)
Antarctic icefishes have a significantly lower critical thermal maximum (CT(max)) compared with most red-blooded notothenioid fishes. We hypothesized that the lower thermal tolerance of icefishes(More)
