The Antarctic snailfish, Paraliparis devriesi (Liparididae), occupies an epibenthic habitat at a depth of 500–650 m in the subzero waters of McMurdo Sound, Antarctica. This species has watery (97%) gelatinous subdermal extracellular matrix (SECM) comprising a mean of 33.8% of the body weight, the largest known proportion of any adult fish. The protein concentration of the SECM was found to be 6–7 mg ml−1 (0.6–0.7% w/v). Separation of the polypeptides of the SECM by SDS-PAGE revealed 11… Expand
