HCO3- dehydration by the blood of rainbow trout following exhaustive exercise.

Exhaustive exercise causes PaCO2 elevation, intense acidosis, and a mobilization of catecholamines into the blood of trout. A radioisotopic assay (Wood and Perry, J. Exp. Biol. 157: 349-366, 1991) was used to examine changes in HCO3- dehydration rate in blood sampled by dorsal aortic catheter from exercised trout. The rate increased about 50% during and… CONTINUE READING
