Photoperiodic regulation of behavioral responses to bacterial and viral mimetics: a test of the winter immunoenhancement hypothesis

Journal of Biological Rhythms

Feb 9, 2008

Scott R Baillie, Brian J Prendergast

Abstract

Siberian hamsters (Phodopus sungorus) exhibit changes in immune function following adaptation to short photoperiods, including a marked attenuation of energetically expensive thermoregulatory and behavioral responses to gram-negative bacterial infections. Whether this seasonal attenuati...read more
