Hemoglobin (Hb) occurs in all the kingdoms of living organisms. Its distribution is episodic among the nonvertebrate groups in contrast to vertebrates. Nonvertebrate Hbs range from single-chain globins found in bacteria, algae, protozoa, and plants to large, multisubunit, multidomain Hbs found in nematodes, molluscs and crustaceans, and the giant annelid and vestimentiferan Hbs comprised of globin and nonglobin subunits. Chimeric hemoglobins have been found recently in bacteria and fungi. Hb… Expand
Bacterial hemoglobins and flavohemoglobins: versatile proteins and their impact on microbiology and biotechnology.
TLDR
VHb has been expressed in various heterologous hosts under oxygen-limited conditions and has been shown to improve growth and productivity, rendering the protein interesting for biotechnology industry. Expand
Interactions of NO with hemoglobin: from microbes to man.
TLDR
Well-documented examples of redox interactions between NO and hemoglobin are reviewed, with an emphasis on biochemical mechanisms and physiological significance. Expand

TLDR
Hemoglobins may be involved in other stress conditions such as osmotic, nutrient and cold stress together with NO and the function of nsHbs can be in NO metabolism and signal transduction, however, other possible functions cannot be precluded as Hbs have many different functions in other organisms.

Haemoglobins of Mycobacteria: structural features and biological functions.
TLDR
This chapter provides recent updates on genomic, structural and functional aspects of Mycobacterial Hbs to address their role in MyCobacteria. Expand
Thermoglobin, Oxygen-avid Hemoglobin in a Bacterial Hyperthermophile*
TLDR
The biochemical properties of A. aeolicus thermoglobin, AaTgb, may have been shared by the ancestral hemoglobin, thus suggesting possible primordial functions and providing a starting point for consequent evolution of the hemoglobin family. Expand
The Nerve Hemoglobin of the Bivalve Mollusc Spisula solidissima
TLDR
It is concluded that invertebrate nerve Hbs expressed at high levels are, despite the hexacoordinate nature of their heme iron, not essentially different from other intracellular Hbs. Expand
Rice ( Oryza ) hemoglobins [version 2; peer review: 2approved]
TLDR
It is likely that Hbs play a variety of roles in rice organs, including O -transport, O -sensing, NO-scavenging and redox-signaling, and from an evolutionary perspective, an outline for the evolution of rice Hbs is available. Expand
Phylogeny of Echinoderm Hemoglobins
TLDR
The presence of echinoderm globins related to the vertebrate neuroglobin and cytoglobin lineages suggests that the split between neuroglobins and cytoglobins occurred in the deuterostome ancestor shared by echinoderms and vertebrates. Expand
Rice ( ) hemoglobins Oryza
TLDR
It is likely that Hbs play a variety of roles in rice organs, including O -transport, O -sensing, NO-scavenging and redox-signaling, and from an evolutionary perspective, an outline for the evolution of rice Hbs is available. Expand
Rice ( Oryza) hemoglobins
TLDR
Based on the accumulated information on the properties of rice Hbs and data from the analysis of other plant and non-plant Hbs, it is likely that Hbs play a variety of roles in rice organs, including O 2-transport, O 2 -sensing, NO-scavenging and redox-signaling. Expand

Evolution of cooperativity in hemoglobins: what can invertebrate hemoglobins tell us?
TLDR
The structural and functional properties of the hemoglobins from Caudina arenicola, an echinoderm, differ radically from those of vertebrates and indeed from some other invertebrates, but closely resemble the packing arrangements found in a clam hemoglobin (Scapharca). Expand
Molecular Structure of the Extracellular Heme Proteins
Hemoglobins are present in all five kingdoms of organisms and are widely but sporadically distributed among the animal kingdom, including the Platy- helminthes, Annelida, Vestimentifera, Pogonophora,Expand

TLDR
The knowledge accumulated over the last 30 years concerning the subunit structures of the invertebrate extracellular hemoglobins permits us to classify them into four distinct groups, which are found in multicellular parasitic organisms and in a few insects. Expand
Functional differentiation in trematode hemoglobin isoforms.
TLDR
The Hbs and their isoforms from different species exhibited pronounced variation in O2 affinity, which may relate to subtle differences in the structure of the heme pocket, and the O2 affinities of the composite (unfractionated) Hbs were intermediate to those of the individual Hb isoform. Expand
Heme Proteins in Sulfide-oxidizing Bacteri/Mollusc Symbioses
TLDR
It is suggested that the role of hemoglobin in each symbiotic association cannot be generalized and that gill hemoglobins from congeners form different derivatives in the presence of sulfide. Expand
Structural, Functional, and Genetic Characterization ofGastrophilus Hemoglobin*
TLDR
Hemoglobin of Gastrophilus intestinalis (Insecta, Diptera), was purified and characterized, resulting in a fully functional molecule as confirmed by ligand binding affinity and the D7.0 intron is unprecedented, suggesting that globin gene evolution is much more complex than originally thought.

The Structure of Erythrocruorins and Chlorocruorins, the Invertebrate Extracellular Hemoglobins
The intermittent occurrence of intracellular and extracellular hemoglobins among the invertebrates may be due either to the intermittent presence of functional globin genes or to defects in theExpand
A High-Affinity Hemoglobin Is Expressed in the Notochord of Amphioxus, Branchiostoma californiense.
TLDR
The existence of intracellular Hb expressed in members of the subphylum Cephalochordata is documented, which may be involved in facilitating oxygen delivery and providing a short-term oxygen store within the notochord cells in order to maintain a high level of aerobic metabolism in support of the sustained contraction necessary forNotochord function.

Hemoglobins of the Lucina pectinata/bacteria symbiosis. I. Molecular properties, kinetics and equilibria of reactions with ligands.
TLDR
Three hemoglobins have been isolated from the symbiont-harboring gill of the bivalve mollusc Lucina pectinata and it is inferred that Hb I may facilitate delivery of hydrogen sulfide to the chemoautotrophic bacterial Symbiont and Hb II and HB III may facilitate Delivery of oxygen. Expand
Crystal structure of a nonsymbiotic plant hemoglobin.
TLDR
The bis-histidyl heme coordination found in riceHb1 is unusual for a protein that binds O(2) reversibly, however, the distal His73 is rapidly displaced by ferrous ligands, and the overall O( 2) affinity is ultra-high (K(D) approximately 1 nM). Expand
