PE - transport of blood gasses

HideShow resource information
what is the Bohr Shift
the change of shape of oxyhaemoglobin dissociation curve, which results in the release of more oxygen in exercising muscles
1 of 5
what conditions make oxygen split more readily from heamoglobin
temperature and acidity, which is caused by an increase of CO2 levels in the blood
2 of 5
what is myoglobin
a pigment found in the muscles. -- it has a higher affinity for O2 than haemoglobin. -- it picks up all O2. -- it stores oxygen in the muscles
3 of 5
what is haemoglobin
a protein found in red blood cell. -- haemoglobin carries O2 around the body. -- it binds with oxygen to form oxyhaemoglobin
4 of 5
why does the Boer Shift occur during exercise
because body temperature increases and CO2 levels rise which make the blood more acidic = oxygen dissasociation
