Information on body temperature is frequently lacking in metabolic studies on normal and malnourished suckling rats although differences in their thermoregulatory efficiency may be expected. The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of different ambient temperatures on the rectal temperature of litters of normal and protein deprived rats to establish the ambient temperatures at which a normal rectal temperature can be expected at various postnatal ages. The offspring of normal… CONTINUE READING
