  • Myoglobin is a typical globular protein, and is found in many animal cells. Like hæmoglobin, it combines reversibly with molecular oxygen; but whereas the role of hæmoglobin is to transport oxygen in the blood stream, that of myoglobin is to store it temporarily within the cells (a funcJon parJcularly important in diving animals such as whales, seals and penguins, the dark red Jssues of which contain large amounts of myoglobin, and which have been our principal sources of the protein).
