The hypoxic and cold environment at high altitudes requires endothermic animals to sustain high rates of O2 consumption for both locomotion and thermogenesis while facing a diminished O2 supply. We are examining the mitochondrial mechanisms of genotypic adaptation and phenotypic plasticity that help maintain ATP supply during hypoxia in high-altitude birds and mammals. Respiratory capacity, cytochrome oxidase activity, phosphorylation efficiency, oxygen kinetics, and several other variables were measured in mitochondria isolated from the flight muscle of bar-headed geese and the hindlimb muscle of highland deer mice, and each were compared to closely-related lowland taxa. Our results suggest that several mitochondrial adaptations, coupled with enhanced mitochondrial O2 supply, contribute to performance in hypoxia.
