if ph of blood is artificially changed to 8 what is most likely to happen
carbonic acid will be completely inhibited
the tissues will not get Oxygen
co2 will not be relesed from h2co3
co will be generated
Please find below the solution to the asked query
If pH of blood is artificially changed to 8, the carbonic acid will be completely inhibited due to inhibition of carbonic anhydrase. In human body, a bicarbonate buffering system is present which maintains the pH of plasma between 7.35-7.45. The following reaction occurs in the system:
It is catalysed by an enzyme called carbonic anhydrase which shows its optimum activity between the pH of 7.35-7.45. If it is disturbed, the enzyme would be inactive and carbonic acid will b inhibited.
