Redox Balance in Antarctic Notothenioid Fishes: Do Icefishes Have an Advantage?
Entry ID: NSF-ANT10-43576

Abstract: Antarctic channichthyid icefishes are stunning examples of the unique physiological traits that can arise during evolution in a constantly cold environment. Icefishes are the only vertebrates that as adults, lack the circulating oxygen-binding protein hemoglobin (Hb); several species within this family also lack the intracellular oxygen-binding protein myoglobin (Mb) in their heart ventricle.
