Abstract : This is a review of hemoglobin structure and function. The role of hemoglobin as the red blood cell oxygen-transport protein is outlined. Structure is defined in terms of amino acid sequence, x-ray crystallographic structure, and subunit interaction. Function is described for reversible oxygen binding, carbon dioxide and protein mechanism.
