Hibernation: the immune system at rest?
Mammalian hibernation consists of torpor phases when metabolism is severely depressed, and Tb can reach as low as approximately –2°C, interrupted by euthermic arousal phases. Hibernation affects theExpand

D-glucose releases 5-hydroxytryptamine from human BON cells as a model of enterochromaffin cells.
BACKGROUND & AIMS 5-Hydroxytryptamine (5-HT) is released from enterochromaffin cells and activates neural reflex programs regulating motility and secretion. Although sugars are reported to releaseExpand

Genomic signatures of near-extinction and rebirth of the crested ibis and other endangered bird species
BackgroundNearly one-quarter of all avian species is either threatened or nearly threatened. Of these, 73 species are currently being rescued from going extinct in wildlife sanctuaries. One of theExpand
