The vasoconstrictor response of blood vessels from two Antarctic fish Trematomus bernacchii and Dissostichus mawsoni and a temperate species Paranotothenia angustata
Entry ID: K057_1998_1999_NZ_4

Abstract: Available evidence suggests that animals living in extreme cold are unusual in having a non-catecholamine based stress response, relying more on neural than hormonal control of the cardiovascular system. In situ heart preparations were used to measure a range of cardiovascular variables in Antarctic fish, including the effects of preload and after load, various vaso-active drugs (acetylcholine, ...
