... accumulation phase, all tissues except for liver have lower levels of glycerol in the intracellular space than the levels in plasma. In liver,glycerol is in equilibrium between the two compartments. Fig. 4. Glycerol levels in tissues of rainbow smelt Osmerus mordax subjected to a controlled decrease...

...William R. Driedzic; Kathy A. Clow; Connie E. Short; K. Vanya Ewart SUMMARY Rainbow smelt ( Osmerus mordax ) accumulate high levels of glycerol in winter that serves as an antifreeze. Fish were subjected to controlled decreases in water temperature and levels of plasma glycerol, liver metabolites...
