... rapidly (by 3 h) after stretching. The character of signaling in SC activation on zebrafish fibers, in particular temperature-dependent responses to HGF and stretch, gives new insights into the influence of ectothermy on regulation of muscle growth in teleosts and suggests the use of the single-fiber...

... glycerophospholipid reptile mammal endothermy ectothermy The resting metabolic rates of endothermic vertebrates, such as mammals,are several times greater than those of similar-sized ectothermic vertebrates,such as reptiles, when measured at the same body temperature. These differences in resting...

... to cope with a stressor ( Wendelaar Bonga, 1997 ). Ectothermy offers animals many advantages over endothermy, which include low energy costs for living, and therefore decreased foraging times and exposure to predators. The consequent minimization of locomotion, which consumes most of the energy budget...

... not been directly examined in relation to different `thermal states', namely ectothermy vs endothermy. By using avian development as a model system for transition from ectothermy to endothermy, we show that, in contrast to the ectothermic state, in the endothermic state the organism is more resistant...
