... enhanced anoxia survival in adult but not hatchling turtles. To test this, adult and hatchling turtles were acclimated to either 20 o C (warm) or 3 o C (cold) for 5 weeks, and then the heart ventricles were collected for quantitative proteomic analysis. The relative abundances of 1316 identified proteins...
