LP15766-6     Oxyhemoglobin

DESCRIPTION
  Part: Oxyhemoglobin
  Description: Oxyhemoglobin is the oxygen-loaded form of hemoglobin, the transport molecule for oxygen in the blood. Each hemoglobin molecule is a tetramer with 4 sites that reversibly bind oxygen. Loading occurs in the lung where the pO2 is high, and unloading occurs in tissues according to the hemoglobin saturation curve. The fraction of hemoglobin sites loaded with an oxygen molecule is close to 100% in arterial blood and 60-80% in mixed venous blood. Changes in absorption spectra of hemoglobin upon binding oxygen is the basis for pulse oximetry, and partly account for its bright red color compared to the purple blue of deoxyhemoglobin due to a higher absorption spectrum (940 nm vs. 660 nm wavelength for oxyhemoglobin).
