Chilling slows anaerobic metabolism to improve anoxia tolerance of insects
Background Insects are renowned for their ability to survive anoxia. Anoxia tolerance may be enhanced during chilling through metabolic suppression. Aims Here, the metabolomic response of insects to anoxia, both with and ...
Does oxygen limit thermal tolerance in arthropods? A critical review of current evidence
(Elsevier Inc., 2016)
Over the last decade, numerous studies have investigated the role of oxygen in setting thermal tolerance in aquatic animals, and there has been particular focus on arthropods. Arthropods comprise one of the most species-rich ...
A transcriptomics assessment of oxygen-temperature interactions reveals novel candidate genes underlying variation in thermal tolerance and survival
(Elsevier B.V., 2018)
While single stress responses are fairly well researched, multiple, interactive stress responses are not-despite the obvious importance thereof. Here, using D. melanogaster, we investigated the effects of simultaneous ...
