  1. Abbreviations: AH frogs artificially hibernating frogs, NH frogs nonhibernating frogs. Values are means ± SD. Within each row, values not sharing superscripts (a and b) differ significantly (p-value < 0.05, Student’s t-test). The RLS-related genera listed in Methods differ in AH frogs compared with NH frogs are underlined
