Preservation of mRNAs in Torpor for Brown Adipose Tissue Activity During Arousal JORDAN SPALDING BIOLOGY 3939 UNIVERSITY OF COLORADO DENVER AIMEE BERNARD, PhD Ictidomys tridecemlineatus Spalding Jordan, Grabek Katie, Martin Sandy

Main points • Squirrels, hibernation and BAT • Increase in abundance of transcripts • Is it transcription or preservation?

Conclusion • Transcripts ‘increased’ in torpor by stabilization • Most transcripts degraded in torpor • Steady state decreases
