Published: 4 January 2022
...Madeleine S. Junkins; Sviatoslav N. Bagriantsev; Elena O.

Published: 6 September 2021
...Birgitte S. Jensen; Angela Fago ABSTRACT Hibernation is a powerful response of a number of mammalian species to reduce energy during the cold winter season, when food is scarce. Mammalian hibernators survive winter by spending most of the time in a state of torpor, where basal metabolic rate...

.... Here, we propose that induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) from unconventional model organisms may retain certain species-specific features that can consequently be investigated in depth in vitro ; we use hibernating mammals as an example. Many species (including ground squirrels, bats and bears) can...

... of mammalian hibernation. In animals housed at constant ambient temperatures (5°C or 25°C, 12 h:12 h light:dark photoperiod), the volume of this depot increased in the autumn and decreased in the spring, suggesting an endogenous circannual pattern. Water-fat MRI revealed that throughout the year this depot...

...Mallory A. Ballinger; Matthew T. Andrews; Raul K. Suarez; Hans H. Hoppeler ABSTRACT Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a unique thermogenic tissue in mammals that rapidly produces heat via nonshivering thermogenesis. Small mammalian hibernators have evolved the greatest capacity for BAT because they use...

...Amanda D. V. MacCannell; Ethan C. Jackson; Katherine E. Mathers; James F. Staples ABSTRACT We used electrocardiogram (ECG) telemeters to measure the heart rate of hibernating Ictidomys tridecemlineatus (thirteen-lined ground squirrel). An increase in heart rate from 2.2 to 5 beats min –1 accurately...
