Data and code for: No evidence of metabolic costs following adaptive immune activation or reactivation in house sparrows

Bethany Hoye, William Buttemer, Terance O'Dwyer, Lee Astheimer & Kirk Klasing
We examined the energetic costs of immune activation by measuring both basal (BMR) and exercise-induced maximal metabolic rates (MMR) in house sparrows before and after being injected with either saline (sham) or two novel antigens (keyhole limpet haemocyanin and sheep red blood cells; KLH and SRBC, respectively) after the primary and two subsequent vaccinations. We also examined the effect of experimentally-induced breeding levels of testosterone (T) on immune responses and their metabolic costs in both...
