Abstract

To study hyperoxic effects on adenine nucleotide content and lactate and pyruvate production by lungs, rats were exposed to oxygen at 1 ATA for 18, 24, or 48 h or to 4 ATA for 1 h. Subsequently, lungs were removed from rats, placed in an isolated-lung apparatus, ventilated with 5% CO2 in O2, and perfused with Krebs-Ringer bicarbonate medium containing 5.5… (More)
