Parallel regression of cold-induced changes in ultrastructure, composition, and properties of brown adipose tissue mitochondria during recovery of rats from acclimation to cold.

Abstract

When cold-acclimated rats are returned to a thermoneutral environment (28 degrees C) after 5 weeks at 4 degrees C, the size of the enlarged interscapular brown adipose tissue decreases during the 1st week. The altered composition of the mitochondria, however, reverts to normal during deacclimation more rapidly than the size of the tissue: a marked decrease… (More)
