- Direct determination of the kinetics of oxygen diffusion to the photocytes of a bioluminescent elaterid larva, measurement of gas- and aqueous-phase diffusional barriers and modelling of oxygen supplyG S Timmins
EPR Centre for the Study of Viable Systems, Department of Radiology, Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, NH 03755, USA
J Exp Biol 203:2479-84. 2000..From these studies, it would also appear that the modulation of tracheolar fluid levels might be a significant mechanism of control of tissue oxygen levels in at least some insects...
- Measurement of oxygen partial pressure, its control during hypoxia and hyperoxia, and its effect upon light emission in a bioluminescent elaterid larvaG S Timmins
Department of Radiology, Dartmouth Medical School, Hanover, NH 03755, USA
J Exp Biol 202:2631-8. 1999..It also raises questions regarding the hypothesis that bioluminescence can have a significant antioxidative effect by reduction of prothorax P(O2 )through oxygen consumption...
