The 16-wk swimming program to which the animals submitted comprised two phases: progressive acclimation and maintenance (Figure 2A and 2B).
After this initial acclimation phase, once the animals were able to swim for 60 min, the animals were acclimated to different intensities of swimming (Figure 2A, 2B).
For example, the induction temperature at which Hsp expression is turned on can be adjusted by long-term seasonal acclimatization or short-term acclimation (reviewed in Hofmann et al.
4) Does thermal acclimation affect the pattern of expression of heat-shock proteins in a thermally tolerant intertidal barnacle?
Thus seasonal changes in the giant axon's size and resistivity are not consistent with compensatory thermal acclimation, but instead serve to maintain a constant relationship between conduction velocity and temperature.
