The complex oligomeric assembly of the hemoglobin subunits may influence the autoxidation rate. To understand this relation, the rate of autoxidation was studied at pH 9.0, where the Glossoscolex paulistus Hemoglobin (GpHb) dissociates. At alkaline pH, this hemoglobin is dissociated into monomers, trimers and tetramers, allowing the study of the integral protein and monomer subunit autoxidation on independent experiments. The autoxidation rate was evaluated in the presence and absence of… CONTINUE READING
