Haemoglobin is the respiratory protein of the red blood cells which carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues and facilitates, both directly and indirectly, the return transport of carbon dioxide. Mammalian haemoglobin has a molecular weight of 64500 and contains two pairs of polypeptide chains: the α-chains with 141 amino acid residues each and the β-chains with 146. Each chain is combined with one haem. Myoglobin, the oxygen carrier of muscle, is closely related to haemoglobin, but has a… Expand
