3 buffers in the human body and what are their conjugate acid-base pairs?

I have Bicarbonate Buffer, Phosphate/Ammonia Buffer, and Protein Buffers, where my confusion lies in what would be there conjugate acid base pairs.......

  • Chemistry -

    CO3^2-/HCO3^- IS the conjugate pair.
    H3PO4/H2PO4^- IS the conjugate pair.

  • Chemistry -

    Thank you i think i was over complicating the question
