Market Report Description

The Asia Pacific Antifreeze Protein Market would witness market growth of 26.2% CAGR during the forecast period (2022-2028).

AFPs can be classified based on two characteristics: TH and IRI. However, the possibility of AFPs interacting with membranes should not be discounted. The gap between a solution's melting and freezing points is referred to as TH. The temperature gap can be established in an AFP-containing solution by irreversible AFP binding to ice crystals and subsequent suppression of the growth until the temperature drops to the non-equilibrium freezing point. The ice crystal explosion can be seen below the non-equilibrium freezing point. AFPs bind to specific planes of ice crystals during the TH gap, forming a distinct ice morphology. Type I AFPs, for example, attach to ice's prism plane and produce a hexagonal bipyramidal structure, whereas hyperactive FfIBP binds to the prism and basal planes and produces a lemon shape.

Moderately active AFPs bind to the prism and/or pyramidal planes of ice crystals, whereas hyperactive AFPs can bind to the basal plane. The AFP-shaped ice morphology is a characteristic of AFP-ice binding. TH has been utilized to quantitatively describe the activity of AFPs. The observed TH activity for most fish AFPs is around 1 °C. During the winter season (1.9 °C), this temperature gap provides enough insulation against seawater for polar fish to survive in frigid surroundings. Many marine AFPs are linked to sea ice, in complement to fish AFPs. Seawater in brine channels in sea ice, unlike the blood plasma of polar fish, freezes to ice.

The medical technology companies of the region are making an extensive investment in research & development of methods of preserving biological samples. The winter leaves of Ammopiptanthus mongolicus, an evergreen legume species that survive in the freezing deserts of northwest China, were refined to produce a boiling-soluble antifreeze protein (AFP). Purification was accomplished using a procedure that included a heat treatment step followed by chromatography, which included ion-exchange chromatography, molecular exclusion chromatography with Sephacryl S300, and hydrophobic interaction chromatography with Sephacryl S300. This AFP exhibited thermal hysteresis activity and has the ability to alter ice crystal formation. It is revealed that this isolated antifreeze protein has a thermal hysteresis activity (THA) of 0.15°C at a concentration of 10 mg/mL and a molecular mass of 28 kD.

The evolutionary history of the AFP families may be traced back to almost many million years ago when the sea level in Antarctica began to freeze; nevertheless, the degree of expression of ice-binding proteins varies between species. The scientists discovered that non-coding DNA fragments were the source of the gene families that code for distinct types of AFPs.
