Structures of the deoxy and CO forms of haemoglobin from Dasyatis akajei, a cartilaginous fish.

Abstract

The three-dimensional structures of the deoxy- and carbonmonoxyhaemoglobin (Hb) from Dasyatis akajei, a stingray, have been determined at 1.6 and 1.9 A resolution, respectively. This is one of the most distantly related vertebrate Hbs to human HbA. Both structures resemble the respective forms of HbA, indicating that the alpha2beta2-type tetramer and the… (More)
