... are very similar to its role during endothermic thermogenesis. The thyroid-mediated increases in metabolism and locomotor performance in ectotherms eventually resulted in sufficient heat production to affect body temperature. From this point onwards, increased body temperature per se could be of selective...

... ), suggesting that the lower efficiency seen in Saw25% cycles at 5 Hz may be due to increased energy turnover during lengthening. Force and heat production was commonly seen to continue into lengthening in Saw25% cycles at 5 Hz whereas force had declined closer towards resting level and heat production had...

... adipose tissue, the specialized endothermic tissue of mammals. Internal heat production is facilitated by increased oxidative metabolic capacity, accompanied by the uncoupling of aerobic metabolism from energy (ATP) production. Here we show that the transition from an ectothermic to an endothermic...

... work output and heat production were measured during a series of 40 contractions using a contraction protocol designed to mimic in vivo papillary muscle activity. Net mechanical efficiency was 13.3±0.7%. The total enthalpy output was 2.16 times greater than the initial enthalpy output,so that initial...

... as the decisive factor for survival at low temperatures, mostly ignoring the possibility of endothermic heat production. We provide here direct evidence of endothermic heat production by `shivering' thermogenesis. The abundance of endothermic bees is highest in the core and decreases towards the surface...

These energy fluxes were evaluated in contractions with constant-velocity shortening either during stimulation or during relaxation. The muscle...
