J Exp Biol (2020) 223 (22): jeb232991.
Published: 26 November 2020
...Angelina M. Dichiera; Andrew J. Esbaugh ABSTRACT Oxygen (O 2 ) and carbon dioxide (CO 2 ) transport are tightly coupled in many fishes as a result of the presence of Root effect hemoglobins (Hb), whereby reduced pH reduces O 2 binding even at high O 2 tensions. Red blood cell carbonic anhydrase...

..., evolved properties of hemoglobin (Hb)–O 2 transport may have been shaped by the prevalence and severity of aquatic hypoxia (which influences the extent to which fish are compelled to switch to aerial respiration) as well as the anatomical design of air-breathing structures and the cardiovascular system...

.... In the present study, we attempted to determine whether regulation of hemoglobin (Hb) gene expression plays a role in the physiological response to chronic moderate hypoxia in whole larvae and hematopoietic tissues (head kidney and spleen) of juveniles. We also tested the hypothesis that hypoxia exposure...

...Jay F. Storz ABSTRACT In air-breathing vertebrates at high altitude, fine-tuned adjustments in hemoglobin (Hb)–O 2 affinity provide an energetically efficient means of mitigating the effects of arterial hypoxemia. However, it is not always clear whether an increased or decreased Hb–O 2 affinity...

The notothenioid genome is also distinguished by the disappearance of traits in some species, losses that might prove costly in a warmer environment. Perhaps the best-illustrated example is the lack of expression of hemoglobin...

... water-acclimated fish, but not in response to hypoxia. Aquatic hypoxia increased the O 2 -carrying capacity of blood via a large (40%) increase in red blood cell density and a small increase in the affinity of hemoglobin for O 2 ( P 50 decreased 11%). In contrast, air exposure increased the hemoglobin O...

Among the consequences of such demands has been the widespread presence of circulating and/or tissue hemoglobins in these symbioses that are necessary to support high metabolic rates in thioautotrophic endosymbioses.
