Acclimation to chronic water restriction in the wild house mouse Mus musculus

, : Acclimation to chronic water restriction in the wild house mouse Mus musculus. Physiological Zoology 46(2): 110-128

Wild house mice were sequentially adapted from drinking water freely to half that drunk freely, from half to one-quarter and from one-quarter to one-eighth. In tolerance tests mice were totally deprived of water. All adapted to half that drunk freely but none to total deprivation while kept at 20 deg C and 50% relative humidity on a diet with carbohydrate 68, protein 18 and ether extract 9% DM.

Molecular oxygen has been previously shown to shorten longitudinal relaxation time (T-1) in the spleen and renal cortex, but not in the liver or fat. In this study, the magnitude and temporal evolution of this effect were investigated. Medical ai...
