Superoxide Dismutase and Reduced Glutathione: Possible Defenses Operating in Hyperoxic Swimbladder of Fish
Swimbladders of fish represent an example of gaseous environment in which the oxygen pressure significantly exceeds 1 bar (Haldane and Priestly 1935). While exposure of whole fish to oxygen partial pressures as great as their swimbladders results in oxygen poisoning, swimbladders appear to be insensitive to oxygen toxicity.
