Invited review: effects of heat and cold stress
on mammalian gene expression.
Heat or cold stress
may affect nutrient partitioning priorities and decrease animal performance.
Probit analysis for calculating the 50% of dead seedlings in -5, -10, -15, -20 and -25[degrees]C for all genotypes showed that Gaskogen with winter type at -42 [degrees]C and shiraz with -28 [degrees]C are tolerant and susceptible genotypes to cold stress
1 inch plus, 30 percent of the month of December (2009) cows could have been experiencing some degree of cold stress
if exposed to the elements.
The difference between peripheral vascular response to cold stress
between male and female patients before remediation was also significant (Table 3), which is consistent with more severe exposure in males as evidenced by blood and urinary arsenic (Table 1) and skin lesions.
The importance of warm housing in preventing winter death is well recognized, (30) but the large contribution made by outdoor cold stress
to winter death (1,31) is generally not.
To estimate the degree of cold stress
that armadillos on Cumberland Island might have experienced during the winter of our study, we examined the weather data for Brunswick, Georgia (approximately 430 km North of our study area) during the period of December 1987 to February 1988.
They found that cold stress
is the dominant climatic factor responsible for increasing cardiovascular deaths.
Wear hats and gloves, anoraks rather than sweaters and slacks rather than skirts, to help protect against cold stress
Birds and mammals that were covered with oil may have ingested toxic quantities as they tried to clean themselves and may have died of cold stress
after the oil damaged the insulation provided by their feathers or fur.
The TLVs also contain exposure limits for electromagnetic radiation, noise, heat and cold stress
and other types of potentially hazardous workplace exposures.
Because there are no true statistics for hypothermia as a cause of death (cold can bring on death, but it is rarely listed as the main cause), experts estimate that cold stress
contributes to an average of 35,000 American deaths each year--of that number, the experts say 80 percent are persons over 65.
In this use, S-ABA causes chilling-sensitive species such as corn to be more chilling-resistant by mitigating necrosis under cold stress
Grb10 is stimulated by cold stress
, which causes the body to burn energy.
Of specific importance are the 8 genes belonging to the Hsp90s, Hsp70s, and small Hsp families that were up-regulated under heat stress and the 1 Hsp70 and 1 Hsp90 gene that were up-regulated under cold stress
