Cryoprotectant found in some Insects and Amphibians to survive the deep freeze!!

 

 

In the news say Insects and Amphibians survive the deep freeze by Cryoprotectant!! :closetema:

 

They say scientist are looking into Cryoprotectant as holy grail of Cryopreservation turning Cryopreservation science fiction into reality.

 

     Where one of major problems with Cryopreservation today that make it science fiction is when you freeze the human body you get ice crystals that damage cells, tissues, organs, brain cells and DNA. So the body is  very damage and not preserved in the state was before freezing.

 

Where despite billions dollars put into Cryopreservation to date they have not found the holy grail to stop ice crystals!!

A body full of natural antifreeze helps Alaskan wood frogs weather winter’s chill, biologists report August 21 in the Journal of Experimental Biology.

 

Natural antifreeze prevents frogsicles.

Interesting.

 

Wonder how we're going to translate into creating an anti-freeze protein like that for long-term cryopreservation after death.
