Re: Hydration of CO2 and Dehydration of Bicarbonate

It's an animal cell , if that helps.

Hydration of CO2 and Dehydration of Bicarbonate

Hi All,

I am asking myself this question, can you please help if you know an answer:

which reaction is faster biologically?

CO2 ---> HCO3 + H+ (hydration) taking place outside the cell.
CO2<--- HCO3 + H+ (dehydration) taking place inside the cell

Many thanks,

Re:

it also depends on what cell type you are referring to. Muscle cells do not produce lactate (at all) unless they are deprived of oxygen, which happens during physical exercise. However, for example some cells of the retina normally have a storage of lactate as part of their regular metabolism. But ...

Lactate

Hi All, I have searched the litreture for means of lacate production other than from glycolysis and didn't seem to find another way in which lactate is produced inside the cell. Please if you happen to know otherwise let me know. Also, lactate is shown to enhance cell migration and it can be utilise...
