Effect of ambient temperature and thyroid hormones on food intake by pigs
(Physiology and Behavior, 1986-01-01) [Artigo]
Food intake and plasma thyroid hormone levels (T4 and T3) were higher in pigs acclimated to cold (12°) than hot (32°) environments. The exposure of cold pigs to hot ambient temperature decreased food intake and plasma T4 ...
Effects of fasting, noradrenaline and glucose tolerance test on free fatty acids and blood glucose in thyroid-deficient pigs
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology B: Biochemistry & Molecular Biology, 1983-01-01) [Artigo]
Food intake and thermic effect of feeding in thyroid-deficient pigs
(Physiology and Behavior, 1984-01-01) [Artigo]
Short and long-term thyroidectomy and Methimazole treatment reduced food intake in young growing pigs. The thermic effect of feeding assessed by the increment in rectal temperature after the beginning of food ingestion was ...
The development of a febrile response to pyrogen in the thyroid-deficient rabbit
(Canadian Journal of Physiology and Pharmacology, 1987-01-01) [Artigo]
The development of the febrile response to E. coli lipopolysaccharide (1.5 μg/kg, i.v.) in thyroid-deficient rabbits has been studied. Twenty-eight New Zealand White rabbits weighing 2.1-2.3 kg were used. Hypothyroidism ...
Effects of antithyroid drug on the rectal temperature and metabolic parameters of ducks (Cairina moschata).
(Poultry Science, 1989-10-01) [Artigo]
The effect of propylthiouracil oral treatment (400 mg/day per bird for 20 days) on body and thyroid weight, rectal temperature and plasma metabolic parameters of ducks (Cairina moschata) was determined. Propylthiouracil ...
Observations on the development of the febrile response to pyrogen in newborn pigs
(Biology of the Neonate, 1985-12-01) [Artigo]
The febrile response of newborn pigs to exogenous pyrogen injection was investigated. Lipopolysacharides (LPS, E coli) were injected intravenously into the superior vena cava of 1-30-day-old piglets. All the experiments ...
Effects of acute cold exposure on rectal temperature, blood glucose and plasma free fatty acids in alloxan-diabetic rats
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology A: Physiology, 1986-12-01) [Artigo]
These experiments were carried out to study the effects of acute cold exposure (0-2°C/4 hr) on rectal temperature, blood glucose and plasma free fatty acids (FFA) in alloxan-diabetic rats. Male Wistar rats weighing 170-190 ...
Cold-acclimation improves cold-tolerance of diabetic rats
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology Part A: Physiology, 1987-12-01) [Artigo]
1. 1. The aim of these experiments was to study the extent to which previous cold-acclimation improves the cold-tolerance of diabetic rats. 2. 2. Alloxan diabetic rats (fasting blood glucose higher than 200mg/dl) were used ...
Effects of acute heat exposure on respiratory metabolism and blood glucose in freshwater fishes, Prochilodus scrofa (curimbatá) and Cyprinus carpio (carp) acclimatized to tropical winter
(Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology Part A: Physiology, 1985-12-01) [Artigo]
1. 1. Routine oxygen consumption and blood glucose were determined from freshwater fishes, Prochilodus scrofa and Cyprinus carpio, exposed at high temperatures for 1 hr. 2. 2. Prochilodus scrofa had a significantly higher ...
