Molecular adaptation at low temperature requires specificities represented mainly by modifications in the gene sequence and consequently in the protein primary structure. To characterize the molecular mechanisms responsible for ribosome cold-adaptation, we compared the ribosomal P0 and P2 genes from the Antarctic ciliate Euplotes focardii with homologous genes from mesophilic organisms, including the ciliates Tetrahymena thermophila and non cold-adapted Euplotes species. This analysis revealed… CONTINUE READING
