Multiwavelength optical spectroscopy was used to determine the oxygen-binding characteristics for equine myoglobin. Oxygen-binding relationships as a function of oxygen tension were determined for temperatures of 10, 25, 35, 37, and 40 degrees C, at pH 7.0. In addition, dissociation curves were determined at 37 degrees C for pH 6.5, 7.0, and 7.5. Equilibration was achieved with a myoglobin solution, at the desired temperature and pH, and 16 oxygen-nitrogen gas mixtures of known oxygen fraction…

Temperature and pH effects on myoglobin optical absorption spectra

Myoglobin is an important intracellular oxygen transport molecule in muscle. Oxygen binding to myoglobin can be determined spectroscopically due to differences in absorption of oxymyoglobin and

Near-Infrared Spectroscopic Measurement of Myoglobin Oxygen Saturation in the Presence of Hemoglobin Using Partial Least-Squares Analysis

Partial least-squares analysis allows for accurate prediction of myoglobin oxygen saturation in the presence of hemoglobin from either transmission of reflectance near-infrared spectra or reflectance spectroscopic techniques, both of which are used in this report.

Optical Spectroscopic Method for in vivo Measurement of Cardiac Myoglobin Oxygen Saturation

A fiber-optic-based spectrophotometer was developed to acquire optical reflectance spectra from a living dog heart. A bullseye concentric optical probe with a 3 mm source-to-detector fiber separation

Simultaneous Optical Spectroscopic Measurement of Hemoglobin and Myoglobin Saturations and Cytochrome aa3 Oxidation in vivo

The ability to simultaneously measure oxygenations in the vascular, intracellular, and mitochondrial compartments will be valuable in physiological studies of muscle metabolism and in clinical studies when oxygen supply or utilization are compromised.

The rate of the deoxygenation reaction limits myoglobin- and hemoglobin-facilitated O₂ diffusion in cells.

It is demonstrated that, in the range of intracellular diffusion distances, the degree of facilitation is limited by the rate of the chemical reaction between myglobin or hemoglobin and O(2), and it is noteworthy that the speed of release of O( 2) from MbO(2, the "storage function," is notlimited by the reaction kinetics under physiological conditions.

Myoglobin facilitates oxygen diffusion.

It is found conclusive evidence that Mb is important in facilitating O 2 diffusion from the vasculature to mitochondrial cytochromes and that the oxygen reservoir of myoglobin is of functional relevance in the beating mammalian heart.

Myoglobin function reassessed

SUMMARY The heart and those striated muscles that contract for long periods, having available almost limitless oxygen, operate in sustained steady states of low sarcoplasmic oxygen pressure that

Myocardial oxygenation in vivo: optical spectroscopy of cytoplasmic myoglobin and mitochondrial cytochromes.

Comparison of in vivo data with in vitro fractions of the heart, including Hb-free tissue whole heart and homogenates, mitochondria, myoglobin, and pig red blood cells, reveals minimal contributions of Hb in vivo.



Determination of myoglobin saturation of frozen specimens using a reflecting cryospectrophotometer.

This report describes a method and instrumentation for determining myoglobin (Mb) oxygen saturation in skeletal muscle using epi-illumination and a four-wavelength optical method and validated using the nonlinear multicomponent analysis method of Lübbers.

Quantitation of myoglobin saturation in the perfused heart using myoglobin as an optical inner filter.

It is reported that retrograde perfusion in the Langendorff mode at either 60 or 120 mmHg pressure resulted in full oxygenation of myoglobin with use of cell-free perfusate equilibrated with 95% O2.

Critical intracellular O2 in myocardium as determined by 1H nuclear magnetic resonance signal of myoglobin.

The sequential nature of the cellular response to limiting O2, starting with alterations in the lactate formation rate and RPP, indicates that NADH, rather than ADP, signals tissue hypoxia.

1H NMR approach to observe tissue oxygenation with the signals of myoglobin.

Although magnetic resonance has established a variety of strategies to measure tissue oxygenation, the Mb approach is the most direct and will lead to a better understanding of oxygen's role in regulating cellular activity.

Transport of oxygen in muscle.

This work addresses intracellular events within the myocyte with particular attention to the role of myoglobin, and asks how the massive and variable flow of oxygen to muscle mitochondria is achieved at near-constant low sarcoplasmic oxygen pressure.
