Elucidating the Biochemical Overwintering Adaptations of Larval Cucujus clavipes puniceus and Cucujus clavipes clavipes, Non-Model Organisms, via High Throughput Proteomics
Beetles form the largest group of organisms on the planet and exhibit numerous interesting phenotypes. One in particular, Cucucus clavipes, is a freeze avoiding beetle that has two unique traits which are linked; the ability to vitrify (or form a glass-like transition state) and survive temperatures as low as -100°C. There are two sub-species, Cucujus clavipes puniceus (Western, C.c.p.) and Cucujus clavipes clavipes (Eastern, C.c.c.). Previous work has shown C.c.p. undergoes dehydration,doi:10.7274/mw22v408336 fatcat:vtvzt4ys5benjebwzsjb5p5boa
