Energy Metabolism in Cardiac Remodeling and Heart Failure
Fatty acids are the main substrates used by mitochondria to provide myocardial energy under normal conditions. During heart remodeling, however, the fuel preference switches to glucose. In the earlier stages of cardiac ...
Energetic and physiological correlates of prey handling and ingestion in lizards and snakes
In this review, we summarize the energetic and physiological correlates of prey handling and ingestion in lizards and snakes. There were marked differences in the magnitude of aerobic metabolism during prey handling and ...
