Entry ID: K012_1986_1987_NZ_2

Abstract: Temperature is an environmental factor which has profound effects on both aerobic and anaerobic activities. During aerobic activity, hydrogen ions from acidic metabolites are consumed by oxidative phosphorylation. When anaerobic burst of activity occur, hydrogen ions must be buffered to prevent an excessive fall in pH which might inhibit normal physiological processes. Temperature alters the ...
