Effect of Hypoxia on the Endoplasmic Reticulum of Mouse Liver
Mammals exposed to sufficiently severe hypoxia die. However, if the mammals are first exposed to a lesser degree of hypoxia for long enough, acclimation occurs and the animal may survive. It is the purpose of this paper to describe studies of possible mechanisms of this acclimation.
