Sheep haptoglobin (HpC) binding hemoglobin increases the stability of the latter to acid denaturation and oxidation by atmospheric O2. HpC is also capable of binding methemoglobin (MetHb) denaturated at pH 3.5 to form a stable complex. This process is accompanied by partial reconstitution of the structural integrity and peroxidase activity of MetHb… CONTINUE READING
