Summary of "Seasonal Cycles in Hematology and Body Mass in Free-Ranging Gray Wolves () from Northeastern Minnesota."

Studies of captive gray wolves () showed seasonal cycles in hematologic values and female body mass. We used a remotely controlled recapture collar to determine whether nine female and five male free-ranging wolves handled four to 17 times in NE Minnesota showed similar cycles. Hematocrit, hemoglobin, red blood cell count, mean corpuscular hemoglobin, mean corpuscular hemoglobin concentration, and body mass increased from summer toward a winter peak and then decreased again toward summer. Several hematologic values differed considerably from those of captive wolves, and the ranges in free-ranging wolves were much greater than those of captives.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Bouts of physical irritability or movement alternating with periods of quiescence. It includes biochemical activity and hormonal activity which may be cellular. These cycles are shorter than 24 hours and include sleep-wakefulness cycles and the periodic activation of the digestive system.

A family of bacteria ranging from free living and saprophytic to parasitic and pathogenic forms.

Elongated gray mass of the neostriatum located adjacent to the lateral ventricle of the brain.

A state of insufficient flesh on the body usually defined as having a body weight less than skeletal and physical standards. Depending on age, sex, and genetic background, a BODY MASS INDEX of less than 18.5 is considered as underweight.

A mass spectrometry technique using two (MS/MS) or more mass analyzers. With two in tandem, the precursor ions are mass-selected by a first mass analyzer, and focused into a collision region where they are then fragmented into product ions which are then characterized by a second mass analyzer. A variety of techniques are used to separate the compounds, ionize them, and introduce them to the first mass analyzer. For example, for in GC-MS/MS, GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY-MASS SPECTROMETRY is involved in separating relatively small compounds by GAS CHROMATOGRAPHY prior to injecting them into an ionization chamber for the mass selection.
