Scientists have discovered that an ice-binding protein fcIBP from the sea ice microalga does not fit in the conventional classification of ice-binding proteins, suggesting unknown mechanisms behind its antifreeze property. This finding could lead to a broader application of the antifreeze protein in food and medical industries. Organisms living in cold zones produce ice-binding antifreeze proteins to prevent themselves from freezing to death.
