Sample text

At any one blood flow, the rate of the reaction will be limited by the rate constant, but an increase in blood flow will increase the rate of deamination of every amino acid. 693//c, is not con­ stant as its value varies with half-life, but X, the rate constant corrected for variations in blood flow, is truly constant. Reactions affected by blood flow In a live vertebrate, the rate of a reaction may be increased by increasing the substrate concentration or by increasing the rate of blood flow, or by both.

These values are for a 700 kg alligator. * At any one substrate concentration, the velocity of a reaction will be proportional to the A-V difference, and the quantity reacted during unit time will be the A-V difference times the blood flow (F). If the sub­ strate A-V difference is divided by the concentration of the substrate [ 5 ] in arterial blood, you have the extraction ratio, which we may call a. A-V difference is then a [ S ] and the velocity could be expressed as V = Fcc(S) = k(S), where k = OLF.

1 if it did. ) Adaptation to prolonged diving has been the object of much study for the past 20 years with most of the emphasis on mammals such as the seal. Their muscles receive considerable benefit from a high myoglobin content, and the circulatory system is such as to reduce flow to the muscles while maintaining it to the brain and viscera. The alligator seems to have the same circulatory response although one might ques­ tion the need for it. Glycolysis, of course, will be a source of energy for much of the body and this pro­ cess will reduce the need for depriving the tiny brain of what little 0 2 was in the blood during the dive.
