We characterized carbohydrate metabolism following activity in the American bullfrog, Rana catesbeiana, and compared whole body metabolic profiles between two seasons. Forty-eight adult male Rana catesbeiana were chronically cannulated and injected with [U-(14)C]L-lactic acid sodium salt in either summer (June) or winter (January) after acclimation for 2 weeks at 15 degrees C with a 12 h:12 h L:D photoperiod. Following injection with [(14)C]lactate, frogs were either allowed to rest for 240 min… CONTINUE READING
