Abstract:AFPP is a 15.5 kDa protein with an unbiased amino acid composition. It was found in all the Antarctic notothenioid fishes examined, at different concentrations. It was most abundant in the shallow water fishes swimming in ice-laden water, but was present at concentrations ten fold less in the deep-water fishes where there is no ice. AFPP was not found in the Arctic gadid fishes although some of them swim just below the ice and in freezing leads in the Arctic pack ice.
