Saturated fatty acids constitute a considerable energy reserve that could convey survival value under chronic cold exposure. It was investigated whether acclimation to cold was associated with a change in the ability of a small microtine rodent, the red-backed vole (Clethrionomys rutilis), to increase the use of saturated fatty acids during thermogenesis… CONTINUE READING
