Hemoglobin polymorphism in Atlantic cod has been investigated with respect to physiological performance at 10, 15 and 20 degrees C applying a modified tonometric method for O2 equilibrium analysis with full control of the equilibrating gas mixture. The results did not indicate any dissociation of the hemoglobins by a reduction in cooperativity and a parallel increase in affinity during the analytical procedure in contrast to the original tonometric method. With the applied preparation technique… CONTINUE READING
