Hemerythrin is a dioxygen-carrying protein whose oxidative/nitrosative stress-related reactivity is lower than that of hemoglobin, which may warrant investigation of hemerythrin as raw material for artificial oxygen carriers (‘blood substitutes’). We report here the first biological tests for hemerythrin and its chemical derivatives, comparing their(More)
Hemerythrin is an oxygen-carrying protein found in marine invertebrates and may be a promising alternative to hemoglobin for use in blood substitutes, primarily due to its negligible peroxidative toxicity. Previous studies have shown that glutaraldehyde-induced copolymerization of hemoglobin with bovine serum albumin increases the half-life of the active(More)
