Summary: Oxygen equilibrium curves of partially autoxidized adult (HbA) and fetal hemoglobins (HbF) were determined at 2–75% methemoglobin (met-Hb). Hemoglobin concentration of 5 mM, pH 7.15 (Tris 0.05 M), and temperature of 37° corresponded to intraerythrocytic in vivo conditions. With increasing met-Hb fractions the curves became shifted to the left and… CONTINUE READING
