Differing mechanisms of cold-induced changes in capillary supply in m. tibialis anterior of rats and hamsters
(COMPANY OF BIOLOGISTS LTD, 2002)
The physiological, metabolic and anatomical adaptations of skeletal muscle to chronic cold exposure were investigated in Wistar rats (Rattus norvegicus), a species that defends core temperature, and Syrian hamsters ...
Relationship between capillary angiogenesis, fiber type, and fiber size in chronic systemic hypoxia
(AMER PHYSIOLOGICAL SOC, 2001)
Whether chronic hypoxia causes angiogenesis in skeletal muscle is controversial. Male Wistar rats, 5-6 wk of age, were kept at constant 12% O-2 for 3 wk, and frozen sections of their postural soleus (SOL), phasic extensor ...
The effects of reduced temperature and photoperiod on body composition in hibernator and non-hibernator rodents
(PERGAMON-ELSEVIER SCIENCE LTD, 2002)
We examined the differential change in body composition in response to a gradual reduction in both environmental temperature and photoperiod to mimic seasonal fluctuations in the wild (summer-winter transition), from ambient ...
