Pressure and temperature interactions on cellular respiration: a review.

Abstract : Thermodynamic equations show that pressure and temperature can, theoretically, act in synergy or in opposite directions depending on their respective variations. Hence, they interact to establish rates of biological processes (pressure/temperature interactions, PTI). For such studies, it is interesting to use aquatic ectotherms, in particular fish, because it is easy to submit them to temperature and/or pressure changes. This review focuses on the effects of temperature and pressure changes on the energy metabolism of fish, mitochondrial oxygen consumption and functioning, showing that the observed effects do not always match the predictions made by equations or models. Unpublished results concerning the mitochondrial function of eels acclimatised at two temperatures and two pressures show that the mitochondrial targets of pressure and temperature are probably not the same. The possible mechanisms and consequences of PTI are discussed.
