The time course of carbon dioxide uptake by oxygenated supensions of human red cells was followed using a CO2 electrode in a Hartridge-Roughton continuous-flow rapid-reaction apparatus. Measurements were made at several temperatures from 1i to 42 degrees C, with the initial PCO2 in the reacting mixture from 40 to 60 mmHg. The initial part of the uptake curve is presumably rate limited by the intracellular hydration of CO2 with reaction-velocity constants in cell water from 280 to 960 S-1 at 42… CONTINUE READING
