Abstract

1. The purpose of this study was to characterize the central metabolism/processing of β-endorphin in wild, desert rodents and to study the effect of heat and cold acclimation on central metabolism/processing and β-endorphin half-life. 2. This report suggests that a shift occurs in the processing β-endorphin in desert rodents acclimated to heat and cold leading to an accumulation of γ-type endorphins. 3. The data support a significant difference in β-endorphin half-life between the desert rodents and the laboratory white rat.
