AKC online seminar: Respiratory adaptations and molecular underpinnings in extreme animals
August Krogh Club online seminar
Professor Angela Fago
Aarhus University, Denmark.
How animals are capable to adapt to their environment by regulating metabolism is a fundamental question in Biology.
In this lecture, I will present some of my own studies on the molecular mechanisms that allow birds to fly at extreme altitudes by maximizing oxygen uptake, turtles to survive total oxygen deprivation by avoiding tissue damage and mammalian hibernators to depress mitochondrial respiration by using hydrogen sulfide as inhibitor.
Thus, control mechanisms of the respiratory cascade are key to physiological animal adaptations.
