Factors affecting normal carbohydrate levels in Rana pipiens.
Variation in Rana pipiens blood glucose levels caused by assay techniques was at least 50% of basal levels. Increases caused by handling and anesthesia were as great as 200% for glucose and 800% forExpand
Physiological response of American bullfrog tadpoles to stressor conditions of capture and hypoxia
TLDR
It is concluded that the stressful stimuli tested were not adequate to alter the biomarker tested and probably this should have occurred due to the synergistic action between this hormone and thyroxin, which induces metamorphosis in these animals. Expand
Die Wirkung des Interrenalorgans auf den Kohlenhydratstoffwechsel bei Amphibien
Summary1.The blood sugar level and the content of glycogen in liver and muscle of the common frog Rana temporatia L. show seasonal changes (Figs. 1–3).2.Maximal values of blood sugar can be found inExpand
The lactacid oxygen debt in frogs after one hour's apnoea in air
TLDR
It is concluded that, in normal frogs, the increase in oxygen uptake following submergence has three elements, the major one being the oxygen cost of increased activity in the form of hyperventilation. Expand
BIOCHEMICAL STUDIES ON THE BLOOD AND TISSUE COMPONENTS OF THE COMMON EGYPTIAN TOAD BUFO REGULARIS
لقد تم دراسة تأثير الأنسيولين بمفرده أو الكورتيزون بمفرده أو كليهما معا ، على مستويات الجلوكوز وحامض اللاكتيك وحامض البيروفيك وعلى أنشطة إنزيمات كولين استيريز والفوسفاتيز القلوي واسبارتات أمنيوExpand
Comparative study in glycolytic capacity in anuran amphibians
TLDR
Rana perezi had higher glycolytic capacity in skeletal muscle than Bufo calamita while this species showed higher activity of gly colytic enzymes in heart muscle, showing interspecific differences in glycoleytic capacity that affect the tissues in a different way. Expand
Reproductive cycle, thyroxine and corticosterone in females of the giant swamp frog Dicroglossus occipitalis at the equator.
TLDR
It is concluded that during egg maturation, increased amounts of E2 and P4 are produced and the observed variations in thyroidal and plasma T4 may be the result of an activation of thyroid function by the peripheral conversion of T4 into triiodothyronine. Expand
Annual variations of thyroid reactivity following thyrotropin stimulation and circulating levels of thyroid hormones in the frog Rana ridibunda.
TLDR
Annual variations in plasma concentration and thyroid gland content of thyroid hormones were studied in male Rana ridibunda together with in vitro capacity of the thyroid gland to release thyroxine (T4) following stimulation with bovine thyrotropin (b-TSH). Expand
Catecholamine and divalent cation effects on frog liver adenylate cyclase.
TLDR
The data suggest that catecholamine-stimulated activities were inhibited by propranolol (10(-5) M), and this suggests thatcatecholamines stimulate frog liver adenylate cyclase through interactions with beta adrenergic receptors. Expand
Plasma thyroid hormones in cyclostomes: do they have a role in regulation of glycemic levels?
TLDR
It is concluded that thyroid hormones, possibly acting with other hormones, may participate in the maintenance of glycemic levels in cyclostomes and that their action is to reduce gly glucose levels. Expand
