Weight variations and energy expenditure in the Adelie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae)


, : Weight variations and energy expenditure in the Adelie penguin (Pygoscelis adeliae). Comptes Rendus Hebdomadaires des Seances de L'academie des Sciences. Serie D: Sciences Naturelles 280(20): 2373-2376

Ponderal loss of fasting Pygoscelis adeliae in an enclosure is linear; minimum for brooders, it triples during moult, and it the fasting period continues to a level below 3,3-3,5 kg, it quintuples. This critical slope could indicate the passage from a lipidic to a protidic metabolism.

Unlike many neuron populations, supraoptic nucleus (SON) neurons are rich in both nitric oxide synthase (NOS) and the NO receptor-soluble guanylyl cyclase (GC), the activation of which leads to cGMP accumulation. Elevations in cGMP result in incre...
