The Interplay Between Respiratory Function and pH Regulation: Mechanisms, Compensations, and Molecular Implications

Introduction Homeostasis, the body’s ability to maintain a stable internal environment, is paramount for optimal physiological functioning. Central to this equilibrium is the regulation of pH levels within narrow limits. pH, a measure of hydrogen ion concentration, significantly influences enzymatic activity, protein conformation, and overall biochemical processes. The respiratory system plays a pivotal role in … Read more
