The cooperativity of human fetal and adult hemoglobins is optimized: a consideration based on the effectiveness of the Bohr shift.

Abstract

The physiological significance of the cooperativity of human hemoglobin (Hb) is considered from the viewpoint of the effectiveness of the Bohr shift at the sites of O(2) release and uptake across the placental membrane. The effects of the Bohr shift was examined by changing the O(2) saturation of Hb (S(pO2)) per unit change in P(50), -dS(PO2)/d P(50), where… (More)
