    Department of Zoology, Miami University, Oxford, OH 45056, United States
    J Insect Physiol 54:1432-9. 2008
    ..This increase corresponded to a depression of the melting point to approximately -2.2 degrees C, and may therefore allow C. antarcticus to survive much of the Antarctic winter in a cryoprotectively dehydrated state...
  2. doi request reprint Function and immuno-localization of aquaporins in the Antarctic midge Belgica antarctica
    Shu Xia Yi
    Miami University, Oxford, OH 45056, USA
    J Insect Physiol 57:1096-105. 2011
    ..These results imply a vital role for aquaporin/aquaglyceroporins in water relations and freezing tolerance in B. antarctica...

    Benjamin N Philip
    Department of Zoology, Miami University, Oxford, OH 45056, USA
    J Exp Biol 211:1114-9. 2008
    ..Overall, this study supports our hypothesis that naturally occurring aquaporins in E. solidaginis are regulated during desiccation and promote cell survival during freezing...

    Nicholas M Teets
    Department of Zoology, Miami University, Oxford, OH 45056, USA
    Am J Physiol Regul Integr Comp Physiol 294:R1938-46. 2008
    ..This is the first report implicating calcium as an important second messenger in the RCH response...
