Acclimatory responses of the Daphnia pulex proteome to environmental changes. I. Chronic exposure to hypoxia affects the oxygen transport system and carbohydrate metabolism

Background: Freshwater planktonic crustaceans of the genus Daphnia reveal an amazing plasticity to manage ecological adjustments in oxygen concentration and temperature. One of the vital healthy proteins of flexible gene control in Daphnia pulex under hypoxia is hemoglobin, which enhances in hemolymph focus by an order of magnitude and shows an enhanced oxygen affinity because of adjustments in subunit make-up. Verdict: Acclimatory changes of the D. pulex proteome to hypoxia included a strong induction of Hb and carbohydrate-degrading enzymes. The circumstance of adaptive healthy protein expression under ecological hypoxia can be analyzed as a process to boost oxygen transport and carbohydrate arrangement for the upkeep of ATP production, also during brief episodes of tissue hypoxia calling for assistance from anaerobic metabolism.
