Its function is to carry oxygen and carbon monoxide molecules
It contains 4 alpha globin polypeptides
It is found in red blood cells
It is made up of around 600 amino acids
It is a fatty acid
It is a protein
All of the above
This occurs in the heart not the lungs!
Because there is a higher concentration of o2 in the lungs and the law of partial pressure states that gasses diffuse from an area of higher partial pressure to an area of lower partial pressure (like diffusion) and the lungs have a high concentration and the RBC's have a lower concentration. Therefore the o2 enters the RBC's
Because o2 is hydrophilic and areas on the red blood cell are hydrophobic, therefore the o2 is attracted to the hydrophobic areas on the red blood cell and the o2 binds to it.
O2 does not enter and bind to hemoglobin through the lungs. This occurs in the brain where complexity thrives and blood is constantly entering.
Carboxyl group (C-terminus)
Amino group (amino terminus)
They become denatured and they fold to nature themselves
Because they always need to move to their lowest energy state
Of a change in PH
Hydrophobic amino acids in the middle
A heme group
Hydrophilic amino acids around the outside of the protein
The partial negative forces of the oxygen attracting to the partial positive forces from the hydrogen
Because each amino acid has it's own specific function, and the combos of amino acids create a chemical change causing a different function.
Because the hydrophilicity and hydrophobicity determine how the protein folds, and because of that, it determines the function of the protein
They don't, the shape of the protein is created based off of specific mRNA signals.
All of the above
Homozygous recessive because SCD is a recessive disease (AA)
Homozygous dominant for risk alleles (ss)
Heterozygous recessive (sA)
