Very low concentration may also induce anaerobic respiration that may accelerate the ripening and senescence (Saquet and Streif, 2008).
Further studies quantifying hemolymph biochemistry, and calorimetric anaerobic respiration studies during hypoxic exposure are needed to understand the mechanisms for the observed differences in hemolymph pH when clamped and emersed.
The by-product of this anaerobic respiration is hydrogen sulphide which is toxic to everything, except the bacteria, and is characterised by the odour of rotten eggs.
The acute respiratory alkalosis may be accompanied by a metabolic acidosis if the hypoxia is severe enough to cause the buildup of lactic acid resulting from anaerobic respiration.
Thus, enzymes involved in respiration may somehow provide a carbon source for regulating ionic and osmotic adjustment (TAIZ; ZEIGER, 2004), synthesis of new molecules) and removal of toxic substances during anaerobic respiration (FARIA et al.
As the enzyme responsible for catalyzing the reactions underlying anaerobic respiration, nitric oxide reductase (NOR) has attracted increasing attention in environmental circles.
Anaerobic respiration produces chemicals that have foul odor and unpleasant taste and, generally, renders such a water body hazardous for any form of human usage.
The birds then switch to anaerobic respiration to power their swimming.
