- Development of endothermy in a Tasmanian marsupial, Bettongia gaimardi and its response to cold and noradrenalineR W Rose
Zoology Department, University of Tasmania, Australia
J Comp Physiol B 168:359-63. 1998..The results indicate that non-shivering thermogenesis occurs in this macropodoid marsupial. This phenomenon may be a phylogenetic difference between macropodid and non-macropodid marsupials as also suggested by Nicol et al. (1997)...
- Nonshivering thermogenesis in a marsupial (the tasmanian bettong Bettongia gaimardi) is not attributable to brown adipose tissueR W Rose
School of Zoology, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Tasmania 7001, Australia
Physiol Biochem Zool 72:699-704. 1999..However, no expression of UCP1 was detected in bettongs either before or after cold exposure (2 wk). These data suggest that the observed NST in the marsupial bettong is not attributable to BAT...
- The hormonal control of birth behavior in the gray short-tailed opossum (Monodelphis domestica)R Rose
School of Zoology, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Tasmania, 7001, Australia
Horm Behav 37:163-7. 2000..These results suggest that, in contrast to Australian species, in this American marsupial, oxytocin initiates birth behavior only in females and does not operate via stimulation of prostaglandin secretion...
- Pregnancy in a marsupial, the Tasmanian pademelon (Thylogale billardierii)R W Rose
School of Zoology University, of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia
Reprod Fertil Dev 11:175-82. 1999..There is an early, smaller, peak at Day 5 RPY, with plasma concentrations of progesterone then falling until the larger pre-partum peak occurs several days before birth...
- Milk composition and growth in wild and captive Tasmanian bettongs, Bettongia gaimardi (Marsupialia)R W Rose
School of Zoology, University of Tasmania, GPO Box 252 05, 7001 Hobart, Tasmania, Australia
J Comp Physiol B 173:125-33. 2003..Thus differences in milk composition resulting from different planes of nutrition can lead to differences in growth rates of marsupial young...
- Thyroid function and the development of endothermy in a marsupial, the Tasmanian bettong, Bettongia gaimardi (Demarest 1822)R W Rose
School of Zoology, University of Tasmania, Private Bag 5, Hobart, Tasmania 7001, Australia
Gen Comp Endocrinol 136:17-22. 2004..The data presented in the paper further attest to the likely important role of the thyroid gland in the development of endothermy in marsupial pouch young...
- Hormonal control of birth behavior in the Tasmanian devil Sarcophilus harrisiiR W Rose
School of Zoology, University of Tasmania Private Bag 5, Hobart Tas, 7001, Australia
Horm Behav 50:417-23. 2006..This study is the first to demonstrate that OT results in PGF2alpha secretion as PGFM levels rose after OT injection...
- Alpha-adrenergic stimulation of thermogenesis in a rat kangaroo (Marsupialia, Bettongia gaimardi)J M Ye
Department of Biochemistry, University of Tasmania, Hobart, Australia
Am J Physiol 271:R586-92. 1996..Taken together, these results indicate that alpha 1-adrenoceptors are directly involved in norepinephrine-induced thermogenesis in non-BAT tissue(s)...
- Hormonal control of birth behavior in the bandicoot (Perameles gunnii: Marsupialia) and other marsupialsT Smith
School of Zoology, University of Tasmania, GPO Box 252-05, Hobart, Tasmania 7001, Australia
Physiol Behav 72:527-32. 2001..Subsequently, we have repeated these experiments with other marsupial groups, with similar results, which suggest that prostaglandin F2alpha stimulates birth behavior and oxytocin stimulates prostaglandin production in most marsupials...
