  • Brief exposure of rats to a cold environment increased the incorporation of inorganic P32 into the inorganic P, 20-min. hydrolyzable P, and total acid-soluble P of the adrenal gland. This increase was abolished by the administration of sodium ascorbate. Similar quantities of sodium succinate were without effect. The effect of ascorbate was largely due to the fact that it increased the phosphorus metabolism of the adrenals of rats maintained at room temperature. ACTH increased the incorporation… CONTINUE READING
