O 2 and CO 2 dissociation curves have been obtained for the hemocyanin-containing blood from the large Cephalopod, Octopus dofleini . The oxyhemocyanin curves showed a typical sigmoid shape. Values for T50 and T100 at 11 C and 0.4 mm Hg Pco 2 were 15 and 70 mm Hg Po 2 , respectively. The amount of dissolved O 2 in the blood at higher Po 2 was considerable and could reach 10% of the total O 2 . The O 2 capacity averaged 3.06 vol %. Dissolved carbon dioxide decreased the affinity of hemocyanin… CONTINUE READING
