...Giulia S. Rossi; Patricia A. Wright ABSTRACT Several animals enter a state of dormancy to survive harsh environmental conditions. During dormancy, metabolic depression can be critical for economizing on limited endogenous energy reserves. We used two isogenic strains (strain 1 and strain 2...

...Giulia S. Rossi; Rebecca L. Cramp; Patricia A. Wright; Craig E. Franklin ABSTRACT Many animals occupy microhabitats during dormancy where they may encounter hypoxic conditions (e.g. subterranean burrows). We used the green-striped burrowing frog ( Cyclorana alboguttata ) to test the hypothesis...

...-ventilatory periods lasting 1.8–26 min. Dormancy at the higher body temperature was accompanied by higher rates of O 2 consumption and ventilation. The increase in ventilation was due only to increases in breathing frequency with no change observed in tidal volume. The air convection requirement for O 2 did...

In this study, we have addressed the level of control at which a mechanism mediated by intracellular pH might operate to arrest protein synthesis. Two independent lines of evidence suggest that there is an element...

Cycles of CO 2 retention and release might be the result and/or the cause of changes in metabolic rate during dormancy. Ventilation is sensitive primarily to O 2 , and O 2 transport appears to be diffusion...
