The interaction of inositol hexaphosphate with methaemoglobin.


1. Inositol hexaphosphate causes the shape of the oxidation-reduction equilibrium curve to become hyberbolic at acid pH values. 2. Inositol hexaphosphate also causes a decrease in the alkaline oxidation Bohr effect at these same pH values. 3. These results support the idea that inositol hexaphosphate causes methaemoglobin to take up the deoxyhaemoglobin… (More)
