Fine structural modifications of liver, pancreas and brown adipose tissue mitochondria from hibernating, arousing and euthermic dormice.


An ultrastructural and morphometric study was performed on mitochondria of euthermic, hibernating and arousing hazel dormice (Muscardinus avellanarius), in order to investigate possible modifications during the seasonal cycle. Hepatocytes, pancreatic acinar cells and brown adipocytes were considered. Our results demonstrated that: (1) the general morphology… (More)
