Effects of recombinant human hemoglobin on motor functions of the opossum esophagus.

Abstract

Chemically altered hemoglobins are being investigated as blood substitutes. They may affect numerous biological processes since free hemoglobin binds nitric oxide (NO). Nitric oxide is a neural mediator of relaxation of the lower esophageal sphincter (LES) and esophageal peristalsis. We hypothesize that recombinant human hemoglobin (rHb1.1) alters… (More)
