... Trachemys scripta elegans , a species undergoing strong metabolic suppression when cold and anoxic. In warm normoxic turtles, free H 2 S was higher in red blood cells (RBCs) and kidney (∼9–10 µmol l −1 ) than in brain, liver and lung (∼1–2 µmol l −1 ). These values overall aligned with the tissue H 2 S...

... the phenotypic consequences of elevated corticosterone during development, and characterizing the levels of maternally transferred corticosterone in unmanipulated eggs using Trachemys scripta . By dosing eggs with tritiated corticosterone and tracking the steroid throughout development, we found that most...

... in the humoral immune system of the red-eared slider turtle, Trachemys scripta , which supports the idea that non-specific, natural antibody responses are an important line of defense in reptiles. Overall, this demonstrates that a taxon’s immune strategy can influence how the immune system is affected by age...

...Gina Galli; E. W. Taylor; Tobias Wang SUMMARY Seven freshwater turtles Trachemys scripta were instrumented with flow probes and cannulated for blood pressure measurements. The turtles were warmed from 24 to 34°C, and cooled down to 24°C, with and without atropine. Animals exhibited a hysteresis...

... resistance ( R sys ). Here,we investigate the role of the α-adrenergic system in modulating R sys during anoxia at 5°C and 21°C in the turtle Trachemys scripta , and also describe how anoxia affects relative systemic blood flow distribution(% Q̇ sys ) and absolute tissue blood flows. Turtles were...
