Abstract Young rabbits (Oryctolagus cuniculus) are only nursed for 3–5 min every 24 h. They show a circadian increase in activity in anticipation of this, which is entrained by suckling. Our aim was to determine whether serum and liver metabolites show diurnal fluctuations which could act to regulate this circadian pattern. Stomach weight, liver glycogen and serum metabolites were measured every 3 h in 7- to 8-day-old pups when normally nursed (up to 24 h after suckling) and fasted (up to 48 h… CONTINUE READING
