It has been noted that both summer drought and sub-zero winter temperatures induce the synthesis of sugars and polyols in invertebrate tissues. This has led several authors to suggest that many of the adaptations, previously viewed as a response to cold, might be part of a more universal desiccation tolerance mechanism. Here we show that acclimation of the soil dwelling collembolan Folsomia candida to a sublethal desiccation stress confers tolerance to cold shock and a significant increase in… Expand
Drought acclimation and lipid composition in Folsomia candida: implications for cold shock, heat shock and acute desiccation stress.
TLDR
It is proposed that the drought-induced PLFA desaturation, combined with the membrane protecting accumulation of cryoprotectives, are important physiological adaptations providing tolerance to both desiccation and cold. Expand
Beyond the lipid hypothesis: mechanisms underlying phenotypic plasticity in inducible cold tolerance.
TLDR
It is shown that this species displays a strong cold tolerant phenotype induced by prior conditioning to cold, and that this is directly linked to upregulated des activity, indicating that mechanisms other than lipid unsaturation play an important role in cold adaptation. Expand
Sugar sweet springtails: on the transcriptional response of Folsomia candida (Collembola) to desiccation stress
TLDR
Gene Ontology analyses suggest that carbohydrate transport, sugar catabolism and cuticle maintenance are biological processes involved in combating desiccation, however, many additional pathways seem to be affected; additional experiments are needed to elucidate which responses are primarily linked to Desiccation resistance. Expand
Temporal gene expression profiles in a palaearctic springtail as induced by desiccation, cold exposure and during recovery
TLDR
The data suggest that cold and water loss induce partly different responses and that temporal sampling is important for uncovering the dynamics of gene responses to cryoprotective dehydration. Expand
Bioinformatics and protein expression analyses implicate LEA proteins in the drought response of Collembola.
TLDR
Results show the presence of a LEA protein-coding region in Collembola, but also indicate that several proteins are involved in response to dehydration stress, including Hsp70. Expand
Combined effects of drought and cold acclimation on phospholipid fatty acid composition and cold-shock tolerance in the springtail Protaphorura fimata
TLDR
The interacting effects of drought and cold acclimation on body fluid osmolality, membrane phospholipid fatty acid (PLFA) composition, and cold-shock tolerance of arthropods are investigated. Expand
The effect of soil pH and temperature on Folsomia candida transcriptional regulation.
TLDR
It is speculated that the minor pH effect on gene expression, compared to the temperature treatment, can be explained by the spatial restricted exposure to the external pH in the gut, and might indicate interesting novel molecular mechanisms. Expand
Understanding desiccation tolerance using the resurrection plant Boea hygrometrica as a model system
TLDR
In this review, the insight into the structural, physiological, and biochemical, and molecular alterations that accompany the acquisition of DT in B. hygrometrica is described and a future perspective is proposed, with an emphasis on the emerging regulatory roles of retroelements and histone modifications in the Acquisition of DT. Expand
Desiccation tolerance and drought acclimation in the Antarctic collembolan Cryptopygus antarcticus.
TLDR
Drought acclimation may permit C. antarcticus to maintain activity and thereby allow sufficient time to utilize behavioral strategies to reduce water loss during periods of reduced moisture availability, as the springtails tolerated a greater loss of body water. Expand
Role of avoidance behavior in the response of Folsomia candida to above‐freezing cooling temperatures
TLDR
Results from the two types of microcosms demonstrated that the vertical distribution of springtails remains strongly biased to the upper soil layer regardless of the temperature of their environment and whether the temperature in the soil column was uniform or graduated, supporting the prediction that hemi‐edaphic species such as F. candida do not relocate to warmer deeper soil layers, but tend to remain in the surface soil layer where they can acclimate to the cooling temperature.

TLDR
It is concluded that more precise measurements are needed of the partitioning of solutes during acclimation and of the sensitivity of different organs and tissues to freezing. Expand

Desiccation elicits heat shock protein transcription in the flesh fly, Sarcophaga crassipalpis, but does not enhance tolerance to high or low temperatures.
TLDR
Protection against desiccation may be linked to the general stress response employed by flesh flies against other environmental stressors such as low or high temperature. Expand

Researchers have elucidated the molecular mechanisms that control the massive conversion of glycogen to polyols and, in some species, regulate the differential synthesis of dual polyols. Expand
Induced thermotolerance and associated expression of the heat‐shock protein Hsp70 in adult Drosophila melanogaster
TLDR
Regression analysis applied to the data on Hsp70 levels revealed that the model describing these data could not explain the data for survival, but statistical analysis on paired measurements of HSp70 and survival revealed a positive association between H Sp70 level and survival at each time elapsed after induction of thermotolerance.

TLDR
By adopting a strategy of near anhydrobiosis induced by sub-zero temperatures, O. arcticus, which was previously thought to be poorly adapted to survive severe winter temperatures, is able to colonise high Arctic habitats. Expand

This study demonstrated that the reduced water supply provided a feasible means of promoting acclimation of evergreen azaleas in late summer, particularly if preceeded by a period of warm and wet weather. Expand

The results suggest that diapausing individuals of this species acquired tolerance to heat, cold and desiccation independent of the transcriptional regulation of the hsp70 gene. Expand
Cold shock elicits expression of heat shock proteins in the flesh fly, Sarcophaga crassipalpis
TLDR
It is demonstrated that heat shock proteins can be induced by extremes of both high and low temperatures but the nature of the stress (heat or cold shock) determines which proteins are induced. Expand

TLDR
This work discloses that expression of Hsps can occur in nature, all species have hsp genes but they vary in the patterns of their expression, and Hsp expression can be correlated with resistance to stress, and species' thresholds for HSP expression are correlated with levels of stress that they naturally undergo.
