Ultrastructural Changes in Skeletal Muscle with Age and Cold-acclimation in Japanese Quail (Coturnix coturnix japonica)
Skeletal muscle is the primary site of thermogenesis in birds. The relative contributions of shivering and non-shivering thermogenesis (ST and NST, resp.) are unknown. Morphological changes can help distinguish the relative importance of ST and NST during development and acclimation. This study asse...
