(= hemoglobin (USA)) Four-subunit globular oxygen-carrying protein of vertebrates and some invertebrates. There are two a and two bchains (very similar to myoglobin) in adult humans; the haem moiety (an iron-containing substituted porphyrin) is firmly held in a non-polar crevice in each peptide chain.
(Learning Modules / Biology / DNA / Glossary) The protein which fills red blood cells, giving them, and blood, their characteristic red colour. Essential in carrying oxygen to the body.

is the component of blood that carries oxygen from the lungs to other tissues. It combines with oxygen in the lungs where the oxygen concentration is high, and releases it to tissues where the concentration is low. Shortage gives anaemia.Found on http://www.encyclo.co.uk/local/20541

Haemoglobin is a protein used by all vertebrates and some invertebrates for oxygen transport. In vertebrates it occurs in red blood cells (erythrocytes), giving them their colour. In the lungs or gills where the concentration of oxygen is high, oxygen attaches to haemoglobin to form oxyhaemoglobin. This process effectively increases the amount of o...Found on http://www.probertencyclopaedia.com/browse/EH.HTM
