- Semipurification and ice recrystallization inhibition activity of ice-active substances associated with Antarctic photosynthetic organismsJ A Raymond
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, Nevada 89154, USA
Cryobiology 43:63-70. 2001..These results raise the possibility that the IASs increase freezing tolerance of their respective organisms by preventing the recrystallization of ice...
- A bacterial TMAO transporterJames A Raymond
Department of Biological Sciences 4004, University of Nevada, 4505 Maryland Pkwy S, Las Vegas, NV 89154, USA
Comp Biochem Physiol B Biochem Mol Biol 133:29-34. 2002..Madin-Darby canine kidney (MDCK) cells, which have a betaine transporter that is also capable of transporting GABA, were unable to take up TMAO...
- Ice binding, recrystallization inhibition, and cryoprotective properties of ice-active substances associated with Antarctic sea ice diatomsJames A Raymond
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Nevada, 4505 Maryland Pkwy S, Las Vegas, NV 89154, USA
Cryobiology 46:174-81. 2003..Together, these results suggest that the IASs acts as a cryoprotectant, probably through some ice-binding mechanism...
- Cryoprotective property of diatom ice-active substanceJames A Raymond
Cryobiology 46:203-4. 2003
- Reduction of freeze-thaw-induced hemolysis of red blood cells by an algal ice-binding proteinJae Shin Kang
Department of Biological Sciences, University of Nevada, Las Vegas 89154, USA
Cryo Letters 25:307-10. 2004..We show here that an IBP from the diatom Navicula glaciei Vanheurck also has the ability to reduce freeze-thaw damage to red blood cells and that the effect may be due to its ability to inhibit recrystallization of ice...
- An ice-binding protein from an Antarctic sea ice bacteriumJames A Raymond
School of Life Sciences, University of Nevada, Las Vegas, NV, USA
FEMS Microbiol Ecol 61:214-21. 2007..The function of the protein is unknown but it may act as an ice recrystallization inhibitor to protect membranes in the frozen state...
