Oxygen dissociation curve for chorioallantoic capillary blood of chicken embryo

Journal of Applied Physiology 40(3): 393-398
Oxygen dissociation curve for chorioallantoic capillary blood of chicken embryo
Oxygen dissociation curves for blood in the chorioallantoic capillary of chicken embryos were determined using a microphotometric apparatus made for measuring the reaction velocity of a red blood cell with oxygen and carbon monoxide. The modified Hill's equations expressing the dissociation curve during development were calculated by two methods. P50's at pH of 7.4 were found to be 60.0, 54.4, 46.2, 33.1, and 28.6 mmHg for 10, 12, 14, 16 and 18 days of incubation, respectively. Although the Bohr factor did not show a clear relation to age, the oxygen affinity and the oxygen capacity tended to increase with the lapse of days, and the power of heme-to-heme interaction, to decrease with age. The findings imply that there is a respiratory adaptation of embryos during development.
