    Annotation P. vanderplanki is the most complex known organism able to survive body desiccation via entering a state of suspended metabolism called anhydrobiosis. This unique ability is based on the specific molecular machinery involving a synthesis of non-reducing sugar trehalose and a variety of protective proteins. Genes encoding these protective proteins are extensively duplicated in P. vanderplanki genome and become hugely upregulated in response to desiccation. Some of these highly expressed genes encode substitutions of amino acids crucial for the function of corresponding proteins. An intriguing group of protective proteins in P. vanderplanki are thioredoxins. These antioxidant proteins are important for P. vanderplanki anhydrobiosis since desiccation is tightly related to the elevated production of free radicals and oxidative damage. TRX set is unprecedentedly expanded in P. vanderplanki genome up to 25 TRX genes. Genomes of congeneric midge P. nubifer, Apis mellifera, Drosophila melano
