The Regulation of Haemocyanin Oxygen Affinity during Emersion of the Crayfish Austropotamobius Pallipes I. an in Vitro Investigation of the Interactive Effects of Calcium and L-lactate on Oxygen Affinity

Abstract

The haemolymph of the crayfish Austropotamobius pallipes exhibits a high affinity for oxygen (P50 = 2-7 Torr at pH7-9 and 15°C) and a modest Bohr effect (<p = —0-455). The affinity of haemolymph dialysed against a crayfish Ringer was lower with a P50 value of 6 4 Torr at the same temperature and pH. The oxygen affinity of the dialysed haemolymph can be… (More)
