Anaerobiosis and the toxicity of cyanide in turtles

, : Anaerobiosis and the toxicity of cyanide in turtles. Comparative Biochemistry and Physiology 24(2): 543-548

1.1. Aquatic and terrestrial chelonians from the Amazon basin survived several hours in an atmosphere of nitrogen. The major change in tissue composition was an increase in plasma lactid acid.2.2. Injections of potassium cyanide were fatal at doses which only partly inhibited respiration. From changes in the composition of plasma and brain it appeared that there was an impairment in the homeostatic mechanisms for glucose, lactic acid, sodium and potassium.3.3. The results are discussed in relation to the control of metabolism in anoxia.

Fetal membranes are postulated to play a role in paracrine signaling during the initiation of labor in women. We developed a dual chamber-fetal membrane-uterine muscle model to study the effect of human fetal membranes on spontaneous uterine contr...
