Thermal acclimation induces adaptive changes in subcellular structure of fish skeletal muscle.
Stereological analyses of electron micrographs were used to quantify physiologically important ultrastructures of slow-twitch oxidative (red) and fast-twitch glycolytic (white) muscle fibers fromExpand

Biochemical Correlations of Power Development and Metabolic Fuel Preferenda in Fish Hearts
Hearts from 16 species of fishes, including representatives of cyclostomes, elasmobranchs, and teleosts, were examined. As a biochemical index of maximal ATP demand, ATPase activity of crudeExpand

Some Pathways of Energy Metabolism Are Cold Adapted in Antarctic Fishes
Biochemical indices of metabolic cold adaptation were studied in muscular tissues of ecotypically similar Antarctic and Temperate Zone marine fishes. Pairwise comparisons were made between sluggishExpand

Atlantic hagfish cardiac muscle: metabolic basis of tolerance to anoxia.
Oxygen tensions in the major venous inputs to the systemic and portal-vein hearts of normoxic Atlantic hagfish (12.3 +/- 1.7 and 11.0 +/- 1.6 mmHg, respectively) are low compared with typicalExpand

When bad things happen to good fish: the loss of hemoglobin and myoglobin expression in Antarctic icefishes
SUMMARY The Antarctic icefishes (Family Channichthyidae) provide excellent examples of unique traits that can arise in a chronically cold and isolated environment. Their loss of hemoglobin (Hb)Expand

The interplay among cardiac ultrastructure, metabolism and the expression of oxygen-binding proteins in Antarctic fishes.
We examined heart ventricle from three species of Antarctic fishes that vary in their expression of oxygen-binding proteins to investigate how some of these fishes maintain cardiac function despiteExpand

Thermal Tolerance of Antarctic Notothenioid Fishes Correlates with Level of Circulating Hemoglobin
The West Antarctic Peninsula region is experiencing some of the most rapid elevations in temperature of any marine environment. We assessed thermal tolerance of white- and red-blooded AntarcticExpand

Metabolic cold adaptation in Antarctic fishes: evidence from enzymatic activities of brain
Abstract. To evaluate the concept of metabolic cold adaptation (MCA) in fishes, we compared – in brain, red muscle, and white muscle of Antarctic notothenioid fishes and tropical/subtropical fishes –Expand

Changes in mitochondrial distribution and diffusion distances in muscle of goldfish upon acclimation to warm and cold temperatures
Transmission electron microscopy of myotomal muscle from goldfish (Carassius auratus L.) reveals significant differences in distribution and density of mitochondria in animals acclimated to coldExpand
