The purpose of this investigation was to construct a compendium of low temperature responsive proteins/gene products across species as identified by bioinformatics based approaches, thus allowing low temperature researchers a searchable database. Another purpose was to identify specific low temperature responsive proteins/gene products across at least two(More)
Cucujus clavipes puniceus is a freeze avoiding beetle capable of surviving the long, extremely cold winters of the Interior of Alaska. Previous studies showed that some individuals typically supercool to mean values of approximately -40 °C, with some individuals supercooling to as low as -58 °C, but these non-deep supercooling (NDSC) individuals eventually(More)
Cucujus clavipes puniceus (C.c.p.) is a nonmodel, freeze-avoiding beetle that overwinters as extremely cold-tolerant larvae in the interior boreal forests of Alaska to temperatures as low as -100 °C. Using a tandem MS-based approach, we compared the proteomes of winter- and summer-collected C.c.p. to identify proteins that may play functional roles in(More)
