Muscle cell in airtight bag

Postby thaigerz » Thu Nov 02, 2006 8:58 am

Imagine a human muscle cell and water is wrapped in an air-tight bag (no air). Would the color change and what would the product be?

I personally think that the color would change to purple, and the product should be lactic acid.

What do you guys think?

I think No need to deep them in water since they cant utilise atmp O2. :wink:

The product will be same. :!:

If You put them in water, I think Osmotic pressure inside the cell will increase due to LA and water will enter in and cell might become light pink. :wink:
