TY - JOUR. T1 - Temperature acclimatisation of muscle performance in the European Queen Scallop. AU - Bailey, David Mark. AU - Johnston, I. A.. PY - 2005. Y1 - 2005. N2 - The phenotypic plasticity of muscle performance and locomotory physiology allows the maintenance of essential activity capacity in the face of environmental change, and has been demonstrated in a wide phylogenetic range of eurythermal vertebrates. This study used the scallop, Aequipecten opercularis, as a model eurythermal invertebrate. Animals caught in different seasons demonstrated marked differences in their swimming performance and the relationship between, temperature and performance. When stimulated to swim at natural ranges of temperature, Winter (cold acclimatised), animals accelerated faster than autumn collected animals swimming at the same temperature (x 2 at 11degreesC) and attained higher velocities during jetting. The effects of acclimatisation were confined to the jetting phase and may be a mechanism for the ...
Photosynthetic organisms are able to sense energy imbalances brought about by the overexcitation of photosystem II (PSII) through the redox state of the photosynthetic electron transport chain, estimated as the chlorophyll fluorescence parameter 1-qL, also known as PSII excitation pressure. Plants employ a wide array of photoprotective processes that modulate photosynthesis to correct these energy imbalances. Low temperature and light are well established in their ability to modulate PSII excitation pressure. The acquisition of freezing tolerance requires growth and development a low temperature (cold acclimation) which predisposes the plant to photoinhibition. Thus, photosynthetic acclimation is essential for proper energy balancing during the cold acclimation process. Eutrema salsugineum (Thellungiella salsuginea) is an extremophile, a close relative of Arabidopsis thaliana, but possessing much higher constitutive levels of tolerance to abiotic stress. This comparative study aimed to characterize the

ABSTRACT Animals welfare and performance is compromised by environmental heat stress, present during summer in the Mediterranean climate. Heat stress effects are well known and widely studied, although the mechanisms of season acclimatisation are less well understood. Throughout the last 20 years, we have been studying this process in the Mediterranean and tropical regions, aiming to understand it better, developing and improving methodologies and search for reliable biomarkers of thermal stress. The ...
Cold-acclimation of rats (3 weeks, 4 degrees C) had no effect on basal rates of glucose production or utilization. Under euglycaemic-clamp conditions, in which the circulating insulin concentration was increased by approx. 50 microunits/ml, cold-acclimated rats showed a greater increase in glucose utilization and a greater suppression of endogenous glucose production. Tissue sites of glucose utilization were investigated by using a tracer dose of 2-deoxy-D-[14C]glucose and a glucose metabolic index determined for each tissue. In 5 h-starved warm-acclimated rats, heart had the highest glucose metabolic index. This was increased further by both cold-acclimation and insulin treatment. The glucose metabolic index of skeletal muscle was 3.5-14-fold lower than that of heart, but, as a result of the large muscle mass, skeletal muscle made the largest contribution to whole-body glucose utilization. White and brown adipose tissue had low glucose metabolic indices in warm-acclimated rats under basal ...
There were three to four times more features upregulated only in cold-acclimated crabs. These were clustered by strong expression differences (average fourfold difference) between warm- and cold-acclimated crabs (N=404; Fig 2E, Table 1) or weak expression differences (average twofold difference) across acclimation temperature groups (N=1927; Fig. 2F, Table 1).. Cold-acclimated crabs had elevated expression of genes encoding proteins involved in the net production of glucose. Of a total of 36 uniquely annotated features for glucose production or transport genes, 26 (72%) were observed in the clusters that were upregulated by cold acclimation (Fig. 2E,F, Table 1), and 15 of those were strongly induced (10- to 12-fold induction; Table 1, Fig. 2E). Cold acclimation strongly induced glucose production and transport genes including glycogen phosphorylase, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase, glucose-6-phosphatase, glucose transporter, glucose repression mediator and sugar transporters such as osmotin ...
Cardiac function is thought to play a central role in determining thermal optima and tolerance limits in teleost fishes. Investigating proteomic responses to temperature in cardiac tissues may provide insights into mechanisms supporting the thermal plasticity of cardiac function. Here, we utilized a global proteomic analysis to investigate changes in cardiac protein abundance in response to temperature acclimation (transfer from 13°C to 9, 19 and 26°C) in a eurythermal goby, Gillichthys mirabilis. Proteomic data revealed 122 differentially expressed proteins across acclimation groups, 37 of which were identified using tandem mass-spectrometry. These 37 proteins are involved in energy metabolism, mitochondrial regulation, iron homeostasis, cytoprotection against hypoxia, and cytoskeletal organization. Compared with the 9 and 26°C groups, proteins involved in energy metabolism increased in 19°C-acclimated fish, indicating an overall increase in the capacity for ATP production. Creatine kinase
NOVOA, F. Fernando; RIVERA-HUTINEL, Antonio; ROSENMANN, Mario y SABAT, Pablo. Intraspecific differences in metabolic rate of Chroeomys olivaceus (Rodentia: Muridae): the effect of thermal acclimation in arid and mesic habitats. Rev. chil. hist. nat. [online]. 2005, vol.78, n.2, pp.215-227. ISSN 0716-078X. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-078X2005000200004.. Studies of metabolic capacities in rodents have been largely studied at an inter-specific levels, but physiological capacities of populations belonging to the same species have received lesser attention. Here we studied the maximum and basal metabolic rates of two populations of the rodent Chroeomys olivaceus dwelling in habitats with contrasting temperature and rainfall regimes, and to test if differences in metabolic capacities are due to local adaptation or acclimatization effect. After four weeks of acclimation to 25 ºC and 10 ºC, the BMR and MMR were determined in individuals from the northern population of Caleta Loa, and the southern ...
A post-doctoral fellowship is available for up to three years to investigate the molecular mechanisms of cold acclimation in Arabidopsis. Initially, the candidate should complete two well-established projects that continue our recent studies (see Hannah et al., 2005, PLoS Genet. 1, e26, http://dx.doi.org/10.1371/journal.pgen.0010026; Hannah et al., 2006, Plant Physiol. 142, http://dx.doi.org/10.1104/pp.106.081141). The first uses real-time PCR and expression profiling to investigate interactions between cold and other signalling pathways. The second project investigates the role of novel proteins in determining freezing tolerance. These high-interest candidates were selected from our earlier profiling studies and homozygous KO mutants are already available. These are being screened for differences in freezing tolerance using established protocols, and for molecular phenotypes using transcript and metabolite profiling. The candidate will have access to the extensive institute facilities and ...
ALTITUDE TRAINING AND ITS EFFECTS ON HIGHLY-TRAINED SWIMMERS The scientific evidence associated with altitude acclimatization and performance in elite swimmers is reviewed extensively in the yet-to-be-published paper, "Altitude training and elite swimmers." The authors are: Brent S. Rushall, Michael J. Buono, and Anthony A. Sucec, Professors of Exercise and Nutritional Sciences at San Diego State University, and Alan D. Roberts, Associate-Professor of Sports Studies at the University of Canberra. The article is the most detailed and up-to-date treatment of the topic available. Initial attention is paid to the manner in which the human body acclimatizes (adapts) to passive and active stresses. Those reactions are then meshed with the published works on altitude acclimatization that are valid for swimming. With altitude training featuring as an expensive part of the annual plans of several nations, it is of value to consider the summary implications of this research article. ". . . acclimatization ...
Little is known about the potential for acclimatization or adaptation of corals to ocean acidification and even less about the molecular mechanisms underpinning these processes. Here we examine global gene expression patterns in corals and their intracellular algal symbionts from two replicate population pairs in Papua New Guinea that have undergone long-term acclimatization to natural…
Larvae and adults of A. aegypti are clearly capable of cold acclimation when presented with a change in larval or adult acclimation temperature. In the present study, we compared the effects of development or adult acclimation at only two temperatures (15 and 25°C), but demonstrate that this difference of 10°C was sufficient to substantially alter chill tolerance in this important vector of disease. Cold-acclimated larvae and adults more rapidly recovered from chill coma following cold stress, and had significantly higher survival following chronic cold. After 12-16 h at 2°C, very few larvae acclimated to 15°C showed any signs of chilling injury while ∼30% of larvae acclimated to 25°C were clearly suffering from neuromuscular injury that prevented them moving in a coordinated manner (Fig. 2B).. Chilling injury has been repeatedly associated with a systemic loss of ion balance in several terrestrial insects, including members of Hemiptera, Diptera, Blattodea, Lepidoptera and Orthoptera ...
Plants possess acclimation responses in which structural reconfigurations adapt the photosynthetic apparatus to fluctuating illumination. Long-term acclimation involves changes in plastid and nuclear gene expression and is controlled by redox signals from photosynthesis. The kinetics of these signals and the adjustments of energetic and metabolic demands to the changes in the photosynthetic apparatus are currently poorly understood. Using a redox signaling system that preferentially excites either photosystem I or II, we measured the time-dependent impact of redox signals on the transcriptome and metabolome of Arabidopsis thaliana. We observed rapid and dynamic changes in nuclear transcript accumulation resulting in differential and specific expression patterns for genes associated with photosynthesis and metabolism. Metabolite pools also exhibited dynamic changes and indicate readjustments between distinct metabolic states depending on the respective illumination. These states reflect ...
Acclimatisation (also called acclimation or acclimatation) is the process in which an individual organism adjusts to a change in its environment (such as a change in altitude, temperature, humidity, photoperiod, or pH), allowing it to maintain performance across a range of environmental conditions. Acclimatization occurs in a short period of time (hours to weeks), and within the organisms lifetime (compared to adaptation, which is a development that takes place over many generations). This may be a discrete occurrence (for example, when mountaineers acclimate to high altitude over hours or days) or may instead represent part of a periodic cycle, such as a mammal shedding heavy winter fur in favor of a lighter summer coat. Organisms can adjust their morphological, behavioral, physical, and/or biochemical traits in response to changes in their environment. While the capacity to acclimate to novel environments has been well documented in thousands of species, researchers still know very little ...
To maximize oxygen transport at altitude, one needs to proportionally alter all links in the delivery, extraction, and utilization phases of the aerobic mechanism that results from the acclimatization process (Sutton, 1994). The elements of major change indicated above acclimate at different times (Smith & Sharkey, 1984). One can cautiously assume that the asynchronous development of the segments of the aerobic system will not accommodate the most effective acclimatization in the early stages. If the term of altitude residence is long enough, eventually all changes will be completed and maximal acclimated aerobic function will have occurred. Despite those changes, oxygen delivery at altitude will still be less than that of sea-level if aerobic fitness was fully trained prior to going to altitude (Sutton, 1994). Maximum physiological capacities are not enhanced by altitude acclimatization. However, submaximal utilizations do change and are associated with improved altitude performance. The longer ...
Our laboratory studies the molecular strategies used by plants, algae and cyanobacteria to maximize their photosynthetic efficiency in an unpredictable and at times rapidly changing light environment. Photosystems are pigment-protein complexes that perform light harvesting and primary light-driven electron transport reactions of photosynthesis. Two spectrally and functionally distinct photosystems participate in the oxygen-evolving photosynthesis of plants, algae and cyanobactetia. Light quality gradients that favour one photosystem over the other initiate a remarkable acclimatory response known as the photosystem stoichiometry adjustment, wherein the relative abundance of the two photosystems is adjusted so as to correct the energy conversion at the rate-limiting photosystem. In this acclimatory response the photosynthetic electron transport provides a feedback regulatory signal that controls the expression of the nuclear-encoded photosystem II (PS II) antenna genes and the chloroplast-encoded ...
Heat acclimation is associated with plasma volume (PV) expansion that occurs within the first week of exposure. However, prolonged effects on hemoglobin mass (Hbmass) are unclear as intervention periods in previous studies have not allowed sufficient time for erythropoiesis to manifest. Therefore, Hbmass, intravascular volumes, and blood volume (BV)-regulating hormones were assessed with 5½ weeks of exercise-heat acclimation (HEAT) or matched training in cold conditions (CON) in 21 male cyclists [(mean ± SD) age: 38 ± 9 years, body weight: 80.4 ± 7.9 kg, VO2peak: 59.1 ± 5.2 ml/min/kg]. HEAT (n = 12) consisted of 1 h cycling at 60% VO2peak in 40°C for 5 days/week in addition to regular training, whereas CON (n = 9) trained exclusively in cold conditions (,15°C). Before and after the intervention, Hbmass and intravascular volumes were assessed by carbon monoxide rebreathing, while reticulocyte count and BV-regulating hormones were measured before, after 2 weeks and post intervention. Total ...

We use three to four camps (depending on weather, team acclimatization and logistics) from Base Camp on up. Most companies use 2 to 3 camps maximum. We feel strongly about giving you the best possible chance to summit. By using more camps, or extra rest days, your chance to acclimatize and summit dramatically increases. It would be easier and more economical for us to use only two camps, but we do not. We want you to have the opportunity to achieve the best acclimatization possible. Sometimes our teams take rest days above Base Camp to help with acclimatization. This can vary depending on trip circumstances, acclimatization, weather, etc.. ...
With the objective of destruction of organic toxic or recalcitrant compounds by a microbial anaerobic mixed population, a new concept has been devised : the Destox concept. It has been applied here to the destruction of a toxic mixture of about 30 polychlorinated aliphatic compounds (PAC-MIX 1), including 51% of hexachloro-1,3-butadiene. The basic step for initiating the degradation is thought to be reductive dechlorination by microbial interspecies hydrogen transfer in a system using at all times a non-toxic co-substrate as major source of carbon and energy. In an upflow laboratory-scale reactor with a fixed-film stationary-bed, fed with a co-substrate, amounts of 48 mg/litre working volume per day of PAC-MIX 1 have been added during intermittent periods of time. This paper presents, over a period of 421 days, the evolution from a situation of complete inhibition of all microbial activity, from fermentative to methanogenic, into a situation of partial acclimatization, the fermentative and ...

The present study evaluated the influence of photon flux density and the type of culture vessel seal on the hardening of in vitro plants and on the survival of seedlings acclimatized of C. mucugensis subsp. mucugensis, in order to increase the survival during acclimatization. Micropropagated shoots were maintained under three different levels of photosynthetically active radiation (PAR): 60; 120 and 300 µmol m-2 s-1. Forty days after inoculation, the PVC that was used to close the tubes was exchanged for three different types of seals: PVC, caps and cotton. At 60 days of cultivation the plants were analyzed as anatomy, loss of water and growth. For acclimatization, some plants were transferred to green houses and covered ...

Hypoxic exposure lasting a few hours results in an elevation of ventilation and a lowering of end-tidal P(CO2) (P(ET(CO2))) that persists on return to breathing air. We sought to determine whether this increment in ventilation is fixed (hypothesis 1), or whether it increases in proportion to the rise in metabolic rate associated with exercise (hypothesis 2). Ten subjects were studied on two separate days. On 1 day, subjects were exposed to 8h of isocapnic hypoxia (end-tidal P(O2) 55 Torr) and on the other day to 8 h of euoxia as a control. Before and 30 min after each exposure, subjects undertook an incremental exercise test. The best fit of a model for the variation in P(ET(CO2)) with metabolic rate gave a residual squared error that was approximately 20-fold less for hypothesis 2 than for hypothesis 1 (p|0.005, F-ratio test). We conclude that the alterations in respiratory control induced during early ventilatory acclimatization to hypoxia better reflect those associated with hypothesis 2 rather than
I couldnt reconcile this with another datum about high altitude climbing, which is that it can be dangerous to go down when you are acclimatized, spend time low, then climb back up. I think I realized whats happening in this case. When you go down after altitude, your cells will compress from the added pressure. You will retain the red blood cells, perhaps even produce more, now that your body is more comfortable. When you climb back up, you will feel great, not being much restrained from the low oxygen. However, your cells will still expand, and if you dont give it the time to do so slowly and uniformly, you will get sick. Edemas occur when cells of different kinds expand at different rates in the low pressure of high altitudes ...
Out of experimental data that have not yet been published and in the light of relevant historical material, Dr. Monge has drawn certain conclusions about biological effects in high altitudes. The whole is presented as a preliminary study to be followed by a series of scientific papers. Three themes are interwoven in this fascinating account of altitude effects on man. They are, (1) the conclusions drawn from the experimental work of the Institute of Andean Biology, of which Dr. Monge is director; (2) the evidence in the chronicles of early Peru that the fair treatment of natives was one of the earliest policy conceptions of Inca government; and (3) successive colonial and republican governments of Peru, over a long period of time, have largely neglected problems of human conservation that arise among the highland population ...
Where this has all led to now is that I feel like living this high up was a pretty big challenge for the first several months. A challenge that my body took months to adapt to and to figure out. Now that I have made that adaptation I am beginning to feel like it is to my advantage to live at this altitude. It actually reminds me a lot of when I first moved to Juneau. It took me over a year to adapt to the terrain (super steep and in many areas super technical) in Juneau and turn what seemed like a negative thing into a very positive thing. In the case of the altitude I think a huge portion of this adaptation is purely physical, but I also dont discount that a large part of this is mental. For months I hard a very hard time accepting the way I feel when I run at 8,500+ ft. I just kept waiting for it to feel better. And day after day it just kept feeling pretty crappy, especially when I went up to 10, 11, 12k, and above. Now it still feels kind of crappy when I go up that high, but Ive come to ...

Conclusions: Flies reared at constant benign temperatures were more fecund at all acclimationtemperatures. In contrast, flies reared under fluctuating natural or laboratory conditions weremore successful in locating food under cool conditions in the field, while constant cool rearingconditions led to high cold resistance. The fluctuating- and low-temperature rearing conditionsresulted in a similar metabolic profile, while the 24C rearing profile was distinct and showeda lack of plasticity. The effects of developmental acclimation on performance are thereforecomplex and cannot be captured through experimental comparisons of constant environments ...
Your body has a relatively narrow range of physical characteristics under which it can function.

2017 The Author(s). Land-atmosphere exchanges influence atmospheric CO 2 . Emphasis has been on describing photosynthetic CO 2 uptake, but less on respiration losses. New global datasets describe upper canopy dark respiration (R d ) and temperature dependencies. This allows characterisation of baseline R d , instantaneous temperature responses and longer-term thermal acclimation effects. Here we show the global implications of these parameterisations with a global gridded land model. This model aggregates R d to whole-plant respiration R p , driven with meteorological forcings spanning uncertainty across climate change models. For pre-industrial estimates, new baseline R d increases R p and especially in the tropics. Compared to new baseline, revised instantaneous response decreases R p for mid-latitudes, while acclimation lowers this for the tropics with increases elsewhere. Under global warming, new R d estimates amplify modelled respiration increases, although partially lowered by ...

A response by an animal that enables it to tolerate a change in a single factor (e.g. temperature) in its environment. The term is applied most commonly to animals used in laboratory experiments and implies a change in only one factor. Compare acclimatization.
Acclimatization important to prevent issues. Takes 2-3 weeks for this to occur and requires regular short exercise to achieve. This decreases your resting HR, decreases skin and core temperature, decreases salt loss, triggers sweating at lower temperature, and increases your ability to exercise.. Most therapeutic drugs are a risk factor for issues with heat related illness.. ...
In my view, education is more akin to shaping and growing oneself, of acclimatization to a community and to an environment. The learning of any subject is analogous to the formation of a literacy in that subject, based not only in speaking the right words, but also in seeing the world in a certain way, recognizing some things as important (and other things as not). Expectations are as important as knowledge in this view, the way we say something as important as what we say ...

The fatty acid composition and fluidity of gill phospholipids and hemocyte membranes of a eurytherrnal bivalve, Placopecten magellanicus, were investigated following a 10°C reduction in acclimation temperature. The time course of the acclimation response from 15 to 5°C was also monitored over a 21-day period. Membrane physical properties were measured by means of an electron spin resonance (ESR) spin-labeling technique, using 5-doxyl stearic acid (5-SASL) as a probe. Changes in the fluidity of gill membranes were analyzed by incorporating 5-SASL into vesicles made from total gill phospholipid (PL). Membrane fluidity measurements showed that cold-acclimated scallop membranes were more fluid than those of warm-acclimated animals. However, the order parameter of 5-SASL was greatest during the first six days of the reduction in temperature, indicating a more rigid gill membrane structure. The fluidity of gill and hemocyte membranes were negatively correlated with the proportion of 20:5n-3 (r = ...
Heat acclimation by post-exercise hot water immersion (HWI) on six consecutive days reduces thermal strain and improves exercise performance during heat stress. However, the retention of adaptations by this method remains unknown. Typically, adaptations to short-term, exercise-heat-acclimation (max in the heat (33°C, 40% RH) before (PRE) and 24 h after (POST) the HWI intervention (n = 13) and then at 1 week (WK 1) and 2 weeks (WK 2) after the HWI intervention (n = 9). Heat acclimation involved a 40-min treadmill run (65% max) on six consecutive days in temperate conditions (20°C), followed by ≤40 min HWI (40°C). Post-exercise HWI induced heat acclimation adaptations that were retained for at least 2 weeks, evidenced by reductions from PRE to WK 2 in: resting rectal core temperature (Tre, −0.36 ± 0.25°C), Tre at sweating onset (−0.26 ± 0.24°C), and end-exercise Tre (−0.36 ± 0.37°C).

GONZALES, Gustavo F.. Hemoglobin and testosterone: importance on high altitude acclimatization and adaptation. Rev. perú. med. exp. salud publica [online]. 2011, vol.28, n.1, pp.92-100. ISSN 1726-4634.. The different types of response mechanisms that the organism uses when exposed to hypoxia include accommodation, acclimatization and adaptation. Accommodation is the initial response to acute exposure to high altitude hypoxia and is characterized by an increase in ventilation and heart rate. Acclimatization is observed in individuals temporarily exposed to high altitude, and to some extent, it enables them to tolerate the high altitudes. In this phase, erythropoiesis is increased, resulting in higher hemoglobin and hematocrit levels to improve oxygen delivery capacity. Adaptation is the process of natural acclimatization where genetical variations and acclimatization play a role in allowing subjects to live without any difficulties at high altitudes. Testosterone is a hormone that regulates ...
