Hamburgers Phenomenon Explains Biology Question

Hamburger’s phenomenon explains


(a) formation of HCO₃⁻
(b) chloride shift
(c) oxygen saturation of haemoglobin
(d) breathing mechanism

Correct Answer:

chloride shift


Removal of CO₂from blood involves both influx of Cl ̄ions into RBCsand efflux of HCO₃ ̄ions from RBCs. Exit of bicarbonate ions, considerably change ionic balance between the plasma and the erythrocytes (RBCs). To restore this ionic balance, the chloride ions diffuse from the plasma into erythrocytes. This movement of chloride ions is called chloride shift (Hamburger’s phenomenon).
