Oxidative stress is a major challenge for the survival of animals living on plateaus; however, lifelong exposure to high altitudes could generate certain adaptabilities which make them more tolerant to these environments. The aim of the present study was to compare the oxidative stress and antioxidant status between low altitude (LA, 2900m) and high(More)
Novokinin (Arg-Pro-Leu-Lys-Pro-Trp), a potent vasorelaxing and hypotensive peptide modified from ovokinin, exhibits highly selective affinity for the AT2 receptor. However, its role in gastrointestinal functions is still not fully understood. In this study, we found that novokinin inhibited basal gastric acid secretion and protected gastric mucosa from(More)
Seasonal acclimatization is important for animals to live optimally in the varying environment. Phrynocephalus vlangalii, a species of lizard endemic in China, distributes on Qinghai-Tibet Plateau ranging from 2000 to 4600m above sea level. To dissect how this lizard mediate metabolism to adapt various season, the preferred body temperature (Tb), standard(More)
