- Desiccation tolerance in the tardigrade Richtersius coronifer relies on muscle mediated structural reorganizationKenneth Agerlin Halberg
Department of Biology, August Krogh Centre, University of Copenhagen, Copenhagen, Denmark
PLoS ONE 8:e85091. 2013..Our data reveal that the musculature mediates a structural reorganization vital for anhydrobiotic survival, and furthermore that maintaining structural integrity is essential for resumption of life following rehydration...
