Type III antifreeze protein (AFP) in the Antarctic eel pout (Lycodichthys dearborni) occurs as a heterogeneous family of three major and at least five minor variants collectively maintained at high year-round blood levels (> 20 mg/ml). Two major AFPs (RD1, RD2) are 7 kD in size, and the third (RD3) is 14 kD and is composed of two 7-kD AFP domains linked by a 9-residue connector. The genomic basis for the heterogeneity and abundance of these AFPs was investigated in this study. Genomic library… CONTINUE READING
