EFFECT OF HIBERNATION ON RESPIRATION AND OXIDATIVE PHOSPHORYLATION IN CHIPMUNK LIVER HOMOGENATES
Preview not available

Abstract

Polarographic measurements of respiration rates in liver homogenates from hibernating and active chipmunks revealed an increased oxidative capacity in liver tissue of chipmunks which had remained in hibernation for about four weeks. Hibernation did not affect the efficiency of oxidative phosphorylation as reflected in the ADP:O values.
