1. 1. Red cell 2,3-Diphosphoglycerate (DPG) content was determined in blood of heat-acclimated and control golden hamsters (Mesocricetus auratus). 2. 2. DPG concentration was found to be significantly decreased in red cells of heat-acclimated hamsters. 3. 3. This reduced concentration may increase the affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen.
