1. 1. The respiratory rate of the larvae of Chironomus thummi was monitored in a closed system. It was virtually constant until the pO2 declined below 10 Torr. 2. 2. When hemoglobin was inhibited by CO the uptake of O2 started decreasing already at 50 Torr. 3. 3. The function of hemoglobin was also studied by measuring the concentrations of metabolites in the larvae during recovery in hypoxie water (pO2 = 15 Torr) after preceding anoxia (6hr). 4. 4. Normal levels of lactate… Expand
