Intracellular pH changes during experimental sustained hypercapnia

Pflügers Archiv : European journal of physiology
E Reichart, F Claudon


During various time periods lasting 3--28 days rats were continuously exposed to FICO2 = 0.08 or 0.16 in normoxic conditions, pHi was measured by the 3H-inulin and 14C-DMO method in the erythrocyte, the gastrocnemius and in the whole body. The erythrocyte acid base disturbances were linked to the extracellular acidosis. The muscle and the mean body pHi developments were the same during 9 or 14 days depending on the FICO2. They diverged after 28 days at FICO2 = 0.08 (Tables and Fig. 2). This could be explained as an acid base reaction of the "non-muscular" part of the whole body intracellular compartment which may be different from the acid base development of the muscular mass. A short term (1 h) acute hypercapnia (FICO2 - 0.20--0.22) was superimposed on the sustained hypercapnia (FICO2 = 0.16). Acid base disturbance was greater when the acute hypercapnia was added at the beginning (3rd day) of the CO2 exposure (Fig.1).

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.

Artificial Intelligence in Cardiac Imaging

Artificial intelligence (ai) techniques are increasingly applied to cardiovascular (cv) medicine in cardiac imaging analysis. Here is the latest research.

Position Effect Variegation

Position Effect Variagation occurs when a gene is inactivated due to its positioning near heterochromatic regions within a chromosome. Discover the latest research on Position Effect Variagation here.

Social learning involves learning new behaviors through observation, imitation and modeling. Follow this feed to stay up to date on the latest research.

Cell Atlas of the Human Eye

Constructing a cell atlas of the human eye will require transcriptomic and histologic analysis over the lifespan. This understanding will aid in the study of development and disease. Find the latest research pertaining to the Cell Atlas of the Human Eye here.

Single Cell Chromatin Profiling

Techniques like ATAC-seq and CUT&Tag have the potential to allow single cell profiling of chromatin accessibility, histones, and TFs. This will provide novel insight into cellular heterogeneity and cell states. Discover the latest research on single cell chromatin profiling here.
