Cold stress during scotophase elicited differential responses in quail pineal, retinal, and serum melatonin levels.

Abstract

Effects of cold stress during scotophase on pineal, retinal and serum melatonin levels were examined in quails. All experimental subjects were housed under a constant room temperature of 23 +/- 2 degrees C and a daily 12 h:12 h light:dark cycle. After 1 week of adaptation, quails were exposed to 4 degrees C in darkness for 60, 120, 180 and 210 min… (More)
