Summary

Liver metabolism at hypotermia was studied in vitro in livers from normal rat and hibernating squirrels using 31P NMR spectroscopy. During continuous perfusion at 6-8 deg C with oxygenated buffer, livers from both species maintained levels of high-energy phosphorylated adenylates, while intrahepatic pH was shifted to values predicted from the "alpha-stat" hypothesis. No specific differences in metabolism were detected between the homeotherm and hibernating species.
