    • Abstract


      In spite of great evidence of increased protein synthesis during cold acclimation in many poikilotherms, little is known about protein turnover rates during thermal stress. Studies on protein levels and its catabolism in the different skeletal muscles ofRana cyanophlictis revealed muscle specific compensation to temperature. The variability in the adaptation of different muscles is attributed to trophic influences of the nervous system primarily and secondarily to acclimation.
