The genus Rhabdophis is a group of widely distributed snakes with more than 20 species. Recent field msurveys uncovered a species in southwestern China, which has long been considered as R. pentasupralabialis.

Although acute hyperoxia/hypoxia alternation can shift sharply physiological processes of vessel development, e.g. oxygen induced retinopathy, very little is known of metabolic products resulted from the neovascularization disorder. In this study, the influence of abnormal oxygen exposures on the plasma metabolomic profiles of rat models with oxyge...
