Oxygen measurements in closed system respirometry using blubber explants from suckling and fasting grey seal pups

Kelly Robinson, Kimberley Bennett & Ailsa Hall
Understanding physiological responses of wildlife and domesticated animals to environmental challenges can be difficult or impossible to investigate at the whole animal level. Tissue culture approaches open up experimental possibilities, but are difficult to undertake in remote environments where facilities to assess tissue viability and minimise or monitor microbial contamination may not be available. Here we used planar optodes in closed system respirometry to measure oxygen use by blubber explants from grey seal (Halichoerus grypus)...
