Investigating the Proteome of Tardigrades: Towards a Better Understanding of Molecular Mechanisms during Anhydrobiosis

Elham Schokraie
Tardigrades have fascinated researchers for more than 300 years because of their amazing capability to undergo anhydrobiosis. In extreme states of dehydration, anhydrobiotic tardigrades undergo a metabolic dormancy, in which metabolism decreases to a non-measurable level and life comes to a reversible standstill until activity is resumed under more favourable conditions. In the anhydrobiotic (tun) state, tardigrades are extraordinary tolerant to physical extremes including high and subzero temperatures, high pressure, and extreme levels of ionizing...
