Age-related changes in thermoregulation in male albino rats.


Male Sprague Dawley rats were followed longitudinally from 3 to 24 months of age. Resting oxygen consumption (VO2), measured in the thermal neutral zone (29 +/- 1.0 degrees C) decreased 47% between 3 and 24 months of age with a stable period from 6 to 9 months. Changes in rectal temperature in general followed changes in VO2. On the average the decline in… (More)
