Diurnal variation in the distribution of lipid in the pectoralis muscle of the House sparrow (Passer domesticus)

Authors


Abstract

The content and distribution of lipid in avian muscle were investigated on a diurnal basis. The results were discussed with reference to shivering and with respect to apparently conflicting findings obtained by previous workers on the effects of exercise and starvation on intracellular lipid in muscle fibres.
