The serum of winter flounder contains a group of small antifreeze peptides which lower the freezing point of their body fluids during the winter months. The poly(A)-containing mRNA coding for these peptides has been isolated from livers of the winter specimens. When the isolated antifreeze mRNA was analyzed by a denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis… CONTINUE READING
