Metabolic costs induced by lactate in the toad Bufo marinus: new mechanism behind oxygen debt?

Abstract

The mechanism of an increase in metabolic rate induced by lactate was investigated in the toad Bufo marinus. Oxygen consumption (Vo(2)) was analyzed in fully aerobic animals under hypoxic conditions (7% O(2) in air), accompanied by measurements of catecholamines in the plasma, and was measured in isolated hepatocytes in vitro under normoxia by using… (More)
