Record #191115:

Cold adaptation in Antarctic biodegradative microorganisms / Asim K. Bej, Nazia Mojib.

Title: Cold adaptation in Antarctic biodegradative microorganisms / Asim K. Bej, Nazia Mojib.
Author(s): Bej, Asim K.
Mojib, Nazia.
Date: 2009.
Publisher: London: Taylor & Francis
In: Polar microbiology : the ecology, biodiversity and bioremediation potential of microorganisms in extremely cold environments. (2009.),
Abstract: Discusses physiological and genetic mechanisms of cold adaptations in Antarctic microorganisms and their mesophilic relatives that may apply to Antarctic biodegradative microorganisms. Describes four classes of proteins for coping with cold temperatures as cold-shock proteins (CSPs) expressed immediately after downshift in temperature; cold acclimation proteins (CAPs) expressed during prolonged growth at cold temperatures; antifreeze proteins (AFPs) expressed to avoid freezing at sub-zero temperatures; and ice-binding proteins (IBPs) which may act as recrystallization inhibitors to protect membranes in frozen state. Other topics discusses include maintenance of membrane fluidity in cold adaptive bacteria; role of pigments; and extracellular polymeric substance (EPS) secreted by Antarctic bacteria in cold adaptation.
