For many animals, the best defense against harsh environmental conditions is an escape to a hypometabolic or dormant state. Facultative metabolic rate depression is the common adaptive strategy of anaerobiosis, hibernation, and estivation, as well as a number of other arrested states. By reducing metabolic rate by a factor ranging from 5 to 100 fold or more, animals gain a comparable extension of survival time that can support months or even years of dormancy. The present review focuses on the…

Metabolic rate depression in animals: transcriptional and translational controls
TLDR
The role of differential gene expression in supplying protein products that adjust metabolism or protect cell functions for long‐term survival, and the mechanisms of protein life extension in hypometabolism involving inhibitory controls of transcription, translation and protein degradation are focused on.

The emerging roles of microRNAs in the molecular responses of metabolic rate depression.
TLDR
A link between metabolic rate depression, a well-documented response to periods of environmental stress, and microRNA expression is demonstrated, which could provide a novel approach for the treatment of stroke and heart attack in humans.
Physiological adaptations to high intertidal life involve improved water conservation abilities and metabolic rate depression in Littorina saxatilis
TLDR
Adaptation to prolonged air exposure at elevated temperatures, which may occur at high-shore levels during summer low tide, does not necessarily involve increased anaerobic capacity in L. saxatilis, but enhanced abilities for water conservation and metabolic rate depression combined with increased stores of fermentable substrate seem to be crucial for survival during prolonged periods of emersion.

Intermediary Energy Metabolism during Dormancy and Anoxia in the Land Snail Otala lactea
TLDR
Data suggest that common molecular mechanisms underlie glycolytic rate depression during dormancy and anaerobiosis in Otala lactea and in hepatopancreas, where phosphofructokinase was the primary locus for inhibitory control during both prolonged anoxia and estivation.
Defense strategies against hypoxia and hypothermia.
TLDR
In hypoxia-tolerant animals, metabolic arrest and stabilized membrane functions are the most effective strategies for extending tolerance to Hypoxia through a number of biochemical and physiological mechanisms.
Metabolic Arrest and the Control of Biological Time
TLDR
This pioneering book provides a theoretical framework in which to organize an attack on the all-too-practical problem of protecting tissues against hypoxia, and is of great use to biomedical/clinical researchers and to biologists, biochemists, and physiologists generally.
Phosphofructokinase of the Hibernator Citellus beecheyi: Temperature and pH Regulation of Activity via Influences on the Tetramer-Dimer Equilibrium
TLDR
Regulatory effects of these types could be important in reversibly inhibiting glycolytic flux during entry into hibernation and thereby eliminating the potential for shivering thermogenesis, while conserving muscle glycogen stores for thermogenesis during arousal and for bouts of locomotory activity following arousal.
Activity and Oxidative Metabolism of the Land Snail Helix aspersa
TLDR
Of the enzymes measured in hepatopancreas tissue, only the soluble aminotransferases changed sufficiently to affect metabolism, and these decreased by 50% or more during dormancy, indicating that, at least in laboratory-induced aestivation, there are few changes in the enzymes of energy metabolism in hepato- metabolism.
Teleosts in hypoxia: Aspects of anaerobic metabolism
TLDR
Several lines of evidence indicate that protein catabolism is of quantitative importance during anaerobiosis; a few metabolic pathways are discussed.
Metabolic suppression and oxygen availability
TLDR
Current data suggest that O2 conformers can maintain coupled metabolism–membrane functions at metabolically arrested states while O2 regulators cannot, presumably because of more permeable membranes and thus higher energy-dependent ion pumping requirements.
Relationships between aerobic and anaerobic energy production in turtle brain in situ.
TLDR
It is indicated that decreased CrP values, decreased ATP production, and high lactate levels do not preclude ion homeostasis and electrical activity of turtle brain and that this brain is protected against lactate or pH damage during anoxia, in contrast to mammalian brain.
Anaerobic Dormancy Quantified in Artemia Embryos: A Calorimetric Test of the Control Mechanism
TLDR
Heat dissipation from brine shrimp embryos during reversible transitions from aerobic development to anaerobic dormancy demonstrates a primary role for intracellular pH(pHi)in this metabolic switching, and mobilizing trace amounts of trehalose may explain the energy metabolism during quiescence.
Influence of Hormones, Second Messengers and pH on the Expression of Metabolic Responses to Anoxia in a Marine Whelk
TLDR
It is indicated that cells and tissues of the whelk respond individually to anoxia and that coordination of the action of protein kinases during anoxIA is not mediated by pH or by common secondmessenger mechanisms.
