Paradoxically, some insects have an increased capacity to survive higher temperatures in winter than summer. Possible… Expand ABSTRACT Upper lethal temperatures (ULTs) of cold-adapted insect species in winter have not been previously examined. We… Expand Expanding cryopreservation methods to include a wider range of cell types, such as those sensitive to freezing, is needed for… Expand SUMMARY To avoid freezing while overwintering beneath the bark of fallen trees, Dendroides canadensis (Coleoptera: Pyrochroidae… Expand Antifreeze proteins depress the non-equilibrium freezing point of aqueous solutions, but only have a small effect on the… Expand Antifreeze proteins (AFPs) can produce a difference between the nonequilibrium freezing point and the melting point, termed… Expand Antifreeze protein 1 (DAFP-1), from the beetle Dendroides canadensis, was expressed in Drosophila melanogaster. Mean thermal… Expand SummaryOverwintering larvae of the beetle,Dendroides canadensis, from northern Indiana were able to survice freezing at… Expand Abstract The effect of gut fluid ice nucleators and antifreeze proteins on maintenance of supercooling was explored in fire… Expand Abstract Freeze-avoiding fire-colored beetle larvae, Dendroides canadensis, were monitored seasonally to explore the role of… Expand
