... lucifugus ) and two insect-eating rodents ( Onychomys leucogaster and Peromyscus leucopus ). In intact animals, the fractional absorption of orally dosed l -arabinose ( M r 150) was 82% in M. lucifugus , which was more than twice that of the rodents. Absorption of creatinine ( M r 113) was greater than 50...

... on individuals of all species. In both approaches, we measured the absorption of 3OMD-glucose, a nonmetabolizable glucose analog absorbed both paracellularly and transcellularly, as well as l -arabinose, which has no mediated transport. Fractional absorption of l -arabinose was three times higher in the bat ( S...

... absorptive demand. We measured absorption of l -arabinose, intestinal size and gene expression of several tight junction proteins (claudin-2, claudin-4, claudin-15 and ZO-1) at three time points: pre-exposure, and after 1 day and 2 weeks of cold exposure. Cold exposure increased food intake by 62% after 2...
