Effect of the E11 amino acid on the ligand binding in Hemoglobin I from Lucina pectinata
Hemoglobin I (HbI) from Lucina pectinata (clam) is a protein that binds and transports H2S to the bacteria in the clam. HbI is one of the few known hemoglobins that carries H2S, toxic gas, in its active site, which contains ...
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. ...
Crystal structures of hemeproteins: Sulf and H2S myoglobin derivatives and Lucina pectinata Oxy (HbII-HbIII) and Oxy (HbIII-HbIII) systems
As a gasotransmitter, hydrogen sulfide (H2S) biochemistry in humans is of pivotal importance. One relevant reaction of H2S in our bodies is its interaction with hemeproteins. The threshold of its beneficial/harmful effects ...
(His)6 -tag recombinant hemoglobin I from Lucina Pectinata: A novel hydrogen sulfide protein donor
Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S) is a gasotransmitter involved in physiological and pathological processes in humans and animals. It is produced endogenously in humans through enzymatic pathways. H2S is associated with the ...
