Abstract:The daily mean rates of blood ammonia and urea did not differ significantly at 9 and 17 °C. However, the pattern of these two parameters during the circadian cycle was not the same at 9 °C as after 23 days at 17 °C. The enzymatic activities rose after one day at 17 °C and remained unchanged, except for arginase which showed perfect thermal compensation.During the circadian cycle, there was some similitude between glutaminase activity and blood ammonia at 9 °C and after 23 days at 17 °C, as well as between argi… Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
