Melatonin in the plasma of growing sheep subjected to short and skeleton long photoperiods



Melatonin in the plasma of growing sheep subjected to short and skeleton long photoperiods



Experientia 40(7): 758-760



Plasma melatonin was measured hourly for 24 h in 8 sheep, 4 under 8L:16D (short day) and 4 under 7L:10D:1L:6D (skeleton long day) after 38 days of exposure. Mean concentrations did not differ between treatments (52 pg/ml under short days; 91 pg/ml for skeleton long days), but the levels were more stable during 24 h in the SD treatment.
