Femtosecond spectroscopy studies of recombinant hemoglobin I of the clam Lucina pectinata (Gmelin, 1791)
Lucina pectinata (Gmelin, 1791) is a clam that can be found in sulfide-rich muds in the coastal mangroves of the southwest coast of Puerto Rico. It contains three different hemoglobins in the gill tissue, hemoglobin I, ...
New crystallographic structures of Oxy-HbII-III and CN-HbII-III forms from Lucina pectinata
The clam Lucina pectinata is found in the sulfide-rich southwest coastal sediments of La Parguera, Puerto Rico in the Caribbean Sea. This bivalve mollusk has developed a chemoautotrophic symbiotic relation with the bacteria ...
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 ...
Surface characterization of chemically modified electrodes with gold nanoparticles and (His)6-rHbI from Luciana pectinata for H2S Detection
The recombinant polyhistidine-tagged hemoglobin I ((His)6-rHbI) from bivalve Lucina pectinata is an ideal biocomponent for a hydrogen sulfide (H2S) biosensor due to its high affinity for H2S. Nowadays it is clear that H2S ...
