New Paper Published in Scientific Reports

"The capacity to maintain ion and water homeostasis underlies interspecific variation in Drosophila cold tolerance" has been published in Scientific Reports.

In a recent paper we have used a comparative approach to investigate the role of the Malpighian Tubule in regulating hemolymph ion balance during cold exposure. This work confirms earlier observations that insect chill tolerance is very closely related to preservation of ion balance and highlights a potential important role of the insect renal system.
