The calorigenic response (millilitres O2 per gram pre hour) to injected norepinephrine (NE) was compared as an index of nonshivering thermogenesis (NST) in the following groups of the Alaska red-backed vole (Clethrionomys rutilus): (1) summer, (2) fall acclimatized, (3) winter acclimatized, (4) 20 degrees C acclimated and (5) 5 degrees C acclimated.

This study examined whether cold, short day or melatonin causes reproductive regression and stimulates nonshivering thermogenesis in a subarctic rodentClethrionomys rutilus. Red-backed voles born and raised at 23°C and 22 h light per day (LD 22: 2) at Fairbanks, Alaska (65°N) were exposed in one of six groups to: 1) long day (LD 22:2), 23°C, injected daily(More)
To assess factors controlling seasonal thermoregulatory and reproductive changes, collared lemmings (Dicrostonyx groenlandicus) were exposed for 16 wk to long day (LD, 22 h light: 2 h dark) and warm (15 +/- 3 degrees C), LD and cold (1 +/- 0.5 degrees C), short day (SD, 4 h light: 20 h dark) and warm, SD and cold or acclimatized to outdoor winter conditions(More)
Tyrosine hydroxylase (TH) and phenylethanolamine-N-methyltransferase (PNMT) activities were assayed in adrenal glands of the following groups of the Alaskan red-backed vole (Clethrionomys rutilus dawsoni): 1) laboratory reared at 20 degrees C and 2) exposed to 5 degrees C for 1, 3, 7, and 28 days; 3) wild, summer acclimatized; 4) wild, fall acclimatized;(More)

To assess a possible mechanism for the enhanced thermogenesis of cold-acclimated and winter-acclimatized red-backed voles (Clethrionomys rutilus), beta-adrenergic receptors of brown fat were characterized by specific binding of (-)-[3H]-dihydroalprenolol [( 3H]DHA) to isolated brown fat membranes from 23 degrees C-acclimated controls, cold-acclimated (5 wk(More)
