If you thought antifreeze was only something that was necessary to keep your car from freezing up in the winter, think again.
Certain plants and animals protect themselves against temperatures below freezing with antifreeze proteins.
Scientists have made an important step forward in their understanding of cryoprotectants â€“ compounds that act as natural 'antifreeze' to protect drugs, food and tissues stored at sub-zero temperatures.
Researchers report that they are the first to show in molecular detail how one gene evolved two competing functions that eventually split up â€“ via gene duplication â€“ to pursue their separate destinies.
RUB chemists unmask natural antifreeze and describe their discovery in the Journal of the American Chemical Society.
The same antifreeze proteins that keep organisms from freezing in cold environments can also prevent ice from melting at warmer temperatures
