Hemoglobin I from Lucina pectinata: A model for hydrogen sulfide reactivity within hemeproteins
The hemoglobin I (HbI) from the clam Lucina pectinata is an intriguing hemeprotein that binds and transports H2S to chemoautotrophic bacteria to maintain a symbiotic relationship and to protect the mollusk from H2S toxicity. ...
Expression and purification of Lucina pectinata recombinant hemoglobin II and the effect of the oxygen affinity on the heme pocket
Lucina pectinata is a bivalve mollusk that inhabits sulfide rich sediments along, the west coast of Puerto Rico. This clam contains three hemoglobins that deliver and transport oxygen (HbII and III) and hydrogen sulfide ...
