Influence of the state of artificial hibernation on intensity of metabolic processes in rabbits

D. O. Melnychuk, S. D. MelnychukN. B. Silonova

Metabolic processes were investigated in the rabbit organism when modeling a condition of hibernation. It is established that during hibernation respiratory subcompensated acidosis develops in animals; the content of lactate and glutamate rises in their blood; activity of lactate dehydrogenase, malate dehydrogenase and isocytrate dehydrogenase increases in the liver cytosol of rabbits, while activity of pyruvate carboxylase and aldehyde dehydrogenase is reduced.
