    Enhanced stability and polyadenylation of select mRNAs support rapid thermogenesis in the brown fat of a hibernator

    Katharine R Grabek et al.
    In the torpid hibernator, when transcription is inhibited, enhanced stability and polyadenylation explain increased abundance of crucial transcripts required for intense non-shivering thermogenesis during arousal.

    Implications of being born late in the active season for growth, fattening, torpor use, winter survival and fecundity

    Britta Mahlert et al.
    Being born late in the active season is associated with a fast life history in a hibernating species, the garden dormouse (Eliomys quercinus).

    CNGA3 acts as a cold sensor in hypothalamic neurons

    Viktor V Feketa et al.
    CNGA3 is a cold-potentiated ion channel that confers cold sensitivity to mouse hypothalamic neurons, whereas CNGA3 from hibernating ground squirrels is cold-insensitive.

    Cytoprotection by a naturally occurring variant of ATP5G1 in Arctic ground squirrel neural progenitor cells

    Neel S Singhal et al.
    A genetic basis underlying cell resilience against metabolic stress in cells of a hibernator, Arctic ground squirrels, has been discovered.

    IP3 mediated global Ca2+ signals arise through two temporally and spatially distinct modes of Ca2+ release

    Jeffrey T Lock, Ian Parker
    Cell-wide Ca2+ signals that regulate numerous cellular functions comprise dual Ca2+ release modes through IP3 receptors, punctate transients mediated by clustered receptors and spatiotemporally diffuse release through functionally distinct receptors.

    Efficient targeted integration directed by short homology in zebrafish and mammalian cells

    Wesley A Wierson et al.
    Short homology arms exposed by CRISPR/Cas9 cleavage can target integration at genomic CRISPR/Cas9 cut sites at high frequencies with reproducible precision using pGTag vectors in zebrafish and mammalian cells.

    Cyclic bouts of extreme bradycardia counteract the high metabolism of frugivorous bats

    M Teague O'Mara et al.
    Novel heart rate strategies that minimize energy expenditure during the day are necessary to cope with high energy nocturnal lifestyles of tent-making bats.

    Hibernation: Life in the fast lane

    C Loren Buck
    Dormice born late in the year start to prepare for winter sooner than mice born earlier in the year.

    The regulation of oocyte maturation and ovulation in the closest sister group of vertebrates

    Shin Matsubara et al.
    Oocyte maturation and ovulation in the sister group of vertebrates, Ciona intestinalis Type A, are triggered by Ci-VP, the Ciona homolog of a typical neruopeptide, vasopressin.

    The starvation hormone, fibroblast growth factor-21, extends lifespan in mice

    Yuan Zhang et al.
    Transgenic mice with high levels of FGF21 live for longer than wild-type mice and do so without reducing food intake.
