We examined the influence of intracellular diffusion of O(2) and high-energy phosphate (HEP) molecules on the scaling with body mass of the post-exercise whole-animal rate of O(2) consumption (V(O(2))) and muscle arginine phosphate (AP) resynthesis rate, as well as muscle citrate synthase (CS) activity, in three groups of tail-flipping crustaceans. Two size classes in each of three taxa (Palaemonetes pugio, Penaeus spp. and Panulirus argus) were examined that together encompassed a 27,000-fold… CONTINUE READING
