Nutrition and energetics in rodent longevity research
- Medicine, BiologyExperimental Gerontology
Factors that influence the energetic and nutrient demands of organisms which oftentimes have underappreciated impacts on clarifying interventional effects on health and longevity in aging studies and subsequent translation to improve the human condition are highlighted.

The effects of rearing-temperature on body conformation and organ size in young pigs.
- Biology, MedicineComparative biochemistry and physiology. B, Comparative biochemistry
Piglets were weaned at 14 days of age and subsequently reared for 23, 35, 42 or 59 days in a cold or a warm environment and the mass of the heart, liver, kidneys, stomach and small intestines was greater in cold- than in warm-reared pigs.
Chapter 11 – Physiology
Although the heart of the mouse, except for size, is essentially similar to the hearts of other mammals, there are some distinct differences in the physiology of the cardiac tissue.
Effect of heat exposure on in vitro intestinal transport and utilization of glucose in the rat.
- Biology, MedicineCanadian journal of physiology and pharmacology
Elevated tissue glucose concentration and enhanced translocation of glucose to the serosal surface were attributed, at least in part, to the decreased rate of glucose metabolism observed in intestines of heat-exposed rats.
Genetic and environmental factors determining the morphological maturation of the mouse and its relationship with weight growth.
- Biology, MedicineJournal of embryology and experimental morphology
Comparisons of the ages at maturation in the two environments showed that the only character to mature earlier at 23 than at 32 °C was pinna freeing, indicating that morphological maturation was closely related to overall growth.
Prematurity and low birth weight litters: a mechanism elicited by thermal stress.
- MedicineAmerican journal of obstetrics and gynecology
Abstract Increased excretions of serotonin were produced by thermal stress in rats. Premature delivery occurred when these were excessively high. With lower levels of serotonin output low birth…
