Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Antarctica presents one of the earth’s most inhospitable environments. Though an abundance of animals have adapted to life associated with the sea in this part of the world, few animals have adapted to the rigors of a terrestrial existence. One exception is the flightless midge Belgica antarctica which at 2mm long, is the largest free-living animal on the continent. Not only must this midge survive the lengthy austral winter as a larva, it also must survive the austral summer, which is characterized by wildly varying and surprising high temperatures in the microclimate that the midge inhabits both as a feeding larva and as an adult. In continuation of our molecular characterization of the stress tolerance of this insect, we have conducted suppressive subtractive hybridization (SSH) to identify differentially expressed genes. This work has resulted in 92 unique clones, making B. antarctica the best characterized Antarctic species at the molecular level. Characterization of the expression patterns of these genes will lead to a better understanding of the molecular mechanisms that have allowed this insect to adapt to the harsh conditions of the Antarctic continent.
