Intracellular and extracellular acid-base parameters during normothermy and daily torpor were examined in deer mice (Peromyscus maniculatus). [14C]Dimethyloxazolidinedione and [3]inulin were used to assess intracellular pH in liver, heart, skeletal muscle, and brain. Buffering capacities were determined using tissue homogenates. A significant increase in plasma $$P_{{\text{CO}}_2 } $$ and $$C_{{\text{CO}}_2 } $$ during daily torpor indicates a respiratory acidosis. All tissues experienced a… CONTINUE READING
