Abstract

The decrease in O2 capacity with decreasing pH (Root effect) was studied in eel blood in which pH was varied in the range 5 to 9 both by addition of acid or base (fixed-acid Root effect) and by varying PCO2 (CO2 Root effect). Hemoglobin-bound oxygen was independent of PO2 above 150 Torr...read more
