The 1H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) myoglobin (Mb) Val E11 signal provides a unique opportunity to assess the functional role of Mb in the cell. On CO infusion in perfused myocardium, the MbO2 signal at -2.76 parts per million (ppm) gradually disappears, whereas the corresponding MbCO signal emerges at -2.26 ppm, reflecting the state of Mb inhibition.(More)
Myoglobin (Mb) has a purported role in facilitating O2 diffusion in tissue, especially as cellular PO2 drops or the respiration demand increases. Inhibiting Mb with CO under conditions that accentuate the facilitated diffusion role should then elicit a significant physiological response. In one set of experiments, the perfused myocardium received buffer(More)
