Measurement of the effects of pH and temperature on the oxygen binding properties (oxygen affinity) and ATP concentrations in whole blood of Antarctic fish
Entry ID: K012_1982_1983_NZ_1

Abstract: Many Antarctic fishes have taken advantage of the combination of low oxygen requirements and high availability of oxygen by reducing the number of erythrocytes and the amount of intracellular haemoglobin. A vital link in the relationship between haemoglobin concentration, oxygen availability and metabolic requirements is the affinity of haemoglobin for oxygen. However, other factors such as pH and ...
