Question

# Hamburger's phenomenon involves?

A
Diffusion of HCO3 into plasma and entry of Cl into RBCs at the level of tissues
B
Diffusion of HCO3 into plasma and entry of Cl into RBCs at the level of lungs
C
Diffusion of Cl into plasma and entry of HCO3 into RBCs at the level of tissues
D
Diffusion of Cl into plasma and entry of HCO3 into RBCs at the level of lungs

Solution

## The correct option is A Diffusion of $$HCO^-_3$$ into plasma and entry of $$Cl^-$$ into RBCs at the level of tissuesThe process which occurs in a cardiovascular system and refers to the exchange of bicarbonate (HCO3−) and chloride (Cl−) across the membrane of red blood cells.This exchange of Cl- ion, and HCO3- ion between plasma and RBC is known as chloride shift. This phenomenon of chloride shift maintains the electrical neutrality of cell. This phenomenon is also known as the Hamburger phenomenon.So the correct answer is 'Diffusion of HCO−3 into plasma and entry of Cl− into RBCs at the level of tissues'.Zoology
