Abstract

This study analyzed the synthesis of glucose in Pleurodema thaul exposed to cold thermal stress as an antifreezing molecule. The plasma glucose concentrations were measured using a glucose meter Accu-Chek Active and a commercial kit. The results showed significant increase of plasma glucose in individuals under the cold thermal stress, indicating that glucose have a function as antifreeze mechanism in this species.
