  • Antifreeze proteins and antifreeze glycoproteins are structurally diverse molecules that share a common property in binding to ice crystals and inhibiting ice crystal growth. Type II fish antifreeze protein of Atlantic herring (Clupea harengus harengus) is unique in its requirement of Ca(2+) for antifreeze activity. In this study, we utilized the secretion vector pGAPZalpha A to express recombinant herring antifreeze protein (WT) and a fusion protein with a C-terminal six-histidine tag (WT-6H… CONTINUE READING
