Table 2 PMT data from food deprived animals and age and time matched control

From: A riot of rhythms: neuronal and glial circadian oscillators in the mediobasal hypothalamus

Animal/Tissue n % Rhythmic Period (hours) Phase (hours after cull) Amplitude (arbitrary units) Rate of Damping (days)
Food deprived animals       
Whole MBH 5 100 22.9 ± 0.1 34.2 ± 1.9 257 ± 73 6.5 ± 1.6
DMH 11 100 24.9 ± 0.6 30.7 ± 1.2 183 ± 38 2.4 ± 0.4
Arc/ME/PT 11 100 23.9 ± 0.6 35.8 ± 2.1* 181 ± 49 4.5 ± 1.2

Controls

DMH 8 100 23.8 ± 1.0 29.8 ± 0.4 157 ± 83 1.9 ± 0.4

SCN 5 100 24.3 ± 0.09 9.0 ± 0.5^ 3882 ± 672
  1. ^ phase for SCN cultures is in Zeitgeber time, not time from cull, as SCN rhythms are not reset by cull/culture procedure.
  2. * p < 0.05 vs control animals
