The study explores the effects of oxygen-nitrogen and oxygen-argon hypoxic mixtures (5–6%) on energy metabolism in rats. It is shown that in animals breathing an argoncontaining hypoxic mixture oxidative phosphorylation is less affected by acute hypoxia that in animals breathing a nitrogen-containing mixture.
