Surprising inventiveness in the molecular interactions in fish hemoglobins that express the Root effect (decreased oxygen-carrying capacity at low pH) and in metabolic adaptations in swim bladder gas gland cells and retinal tissues causes local acidification of blood and generates hyperbaric oxygen tensions that drive oxygen into the swim bladder (regulating buoyancy) and ensures the oxygen supply to the avascularized retinae.

Current understanding in respect to comparative aspects of fish mitochondrial function is summarized, with an emphasis on the adaptations toChanges in temperature, O2 availability and O2 consumption, which are generally coupled to changes in antioxidant status and ROS production.

Physiological and ecological implications of ocean deoxygenation for vision in marine organisms

TLDR
Visual responses to hypoxia, including greater light requirements, offer an alternative hypothesis for observed habitat compression and shoaling vertical distributions in visual marine species subject to ocean deoxygenation, which merits further investigation.

The evolution of Root effect hemoglobins in the absence of intracellular pH protection of the red blood cell: insights from primitive fishes

The Root effect, a reduction in blood oxygen (O2) carrying capacity at low pH, is used by many fish species to maximize O2 delivery to the eye and swimbladder. It is believed to have evolved in the

Negative cooperativity in Root-effect hemoglobins: role of heterogeneity.

TLDR
It is shown that in some animals, the oxygen transport capacity of blood decreases when pH is lowered, yielding oxygen binding curves with Hill-coefficients smaller than unity, and in such a case the mixture of these isoforms can exhibit apparent negative cooperativity, although each component taken separately can be described by the MWC model.

New insights into the proton-dependent oxygen affinity of Root effect haemoglobins.

TLDR
The available evidence supports the concept that in both Bohr effect and Root effect Hbs a large steric component acts in addition to quaternary shifts between R and T conformations to regulate ligand affinity, and moderate these steric effects within both R- and T-state conformations.

Nitric oxide (NO) gas present in the swim bladder of cod (Gadus morhua)

Nitric oxide (NO), a simple diatomic molecule, has been shown to be a biological messenger of key importance, controlling an almost limitless range of functions in the body. In the present study NO

Red blood cell pH, the Bohr effect, and other oxygenation-linked phenomena in blood O2 and CO2 transport.

TLDR
Blood O2 transport shows several adaptive changes during exposure to environmental hypoxia, and the Bohr effect is involved via the respiratory alkalosis induced by hyperventilation, and also via the pHi change that results from modulation of RBC organic phosphate content.

THE RESPIRATORY FUNCTION OF THE BLOOD OF MARINE FISHES

TLDR
The suggestion is that there is an inactivation of certain of the prosthetic groups concerned in binding oxygen in the hemoglobin molecule, causing a marked decrease in oxygen-combining power of the bloods.

Stereochemistry of cooperative effects in fish and amphibian haemoglobins

TLDR
A stereochemical model for the binding of the allosteric effectors ATP or GTP is advanced and shows that hydrogen bonds between this serine and the C-terminal histidine stabilize the quaternary deoxy(T) structure.

Structural basis for the Root effect in haemoglobin

TLDR
Surprisingly, a set of residues specific to Root effect haemoglobins recruit additional residues, conserved among most haemglobins, to produce the Root effect.

TLDR
It is suggested that the choroid rete mirabile, acting in concert with the pigment cell layer of the retina, plays an essential part in establishing the large oxygen pressure at the retina.

The Anodic Hemoglobin of Anguilla anguilla

TLDR
It is proposed that the major groups involved in the binding of oxygen-linked protons in eel anodic hemoglobin are located on the β chain and comprise His-HC3 at the C terminus, His-FG4 at the switch interface, and Lys-EF6 and the N terminus at the phosphate-binding site.

Swim bladder gas gland cells produce surfactant: in vivo and in culture.

TLDR
In both species, Western blot analysis using specific antibodies to human surfactant protein A showed a cross-reaction with swim bladder tissue homogenate proteins of approximately 65 kDa and in the eel occasionally of approximately 120 kDa, probably representing SP-A-like proteins in a dimeric and a tetrameric state.

TLDR
Mechanisms of acid production and of acid release have been analyzed in isolated gas gland cells of the eel swimbladder using a cytosensor microphysiometer, indicating the presence of a membrane-bound carbonic anhydrase facing the extracellular space.
