Abstract:In order to investigate the body mass regulation and energy metabolism of Eothenomys miletus during seasonal simulation, E. miletus were fed in the simulated summer condition (25℃, 16L:8D) for two weeks and then transferred to simulated winter condition (5℃, 8L:16D) for 8 days. Subsequently, body mass and food intake were measured every two days, resting metabolic rate (RMR) was measured every 7 days, body fat mass and serum leptin level were measured at the end of the experiment. The results showed that body mass were significantly different (F=1.911, P<0.05) under seasonal simulation. Especially on day 22, body mass decreased 12.54% compared with that on day 0. The values of food intake were extreme significantly different (F=8.850, P<0.01) under seasonal simulation, which increased 58.23% on day 22 compared with that on day 0. Seasonal simulation also affected RMR extreme significantly (F=9.969, P<0.01), which increased 82.22% on day 22 compared with that on day 0. Body fat mass was positively correlated with the serum leptin level. The results suggested that E. miletus adopted to cold condition mainly by reducing body mass, increasing food intake and thermogenesis. Moreover, serum leptin levels may be involved in the body mass regulation of E. miletus.
