Cellular Oxygen Concentration

  • Chapter

Part of the Advances in Experimental Medicine and Biology book series (AEMB,volume 75)

Abstract

At low oxygen levels the intracellular or intramitochondrial concentration of molecular oxygen together with the amount of reduced cytochrome oxydase determines the rate of oxygen utilization. Below the so-called “critical oxygen concentration”, i.e. the value, at which a drop in the rate of oxygen uptake has its first evidence, the kinetic is described by the oxygen affinity (Km) of the respiratory chain, i.e. the concentration value for half maximal rate of oxygen uptake.
