Non-equilibrium acid-base status in C. productus: role of exoskeletal carbonate buffers.

Abstract

Hemolymph acid-base variables (pH, PCO2 and CCO2), hemolymph Ca2+ and Na+ concentrations, and osmolality were measured in unrestrained crabs, Cancer productus, before, during and following 4 hr emersion and 43 hr hyperoxia (460-510 Torr), both at 10 degrees C. Emersion and hyperoxia provoked an acidosis associated with elevation of hemolymph CCO2 and PCO2… (More)
