Hemoglobin and myoglobin are only slightly related in primary sequence. Although most amino acids are different between the two sequences, the amino acid changes between the two proteins are generally conservative.

Thiosulfate formation and biodegradation processes link aerobic and anaerobic metabolism of cysteine. In these reactions, sulfite formed from thiosulfate is oxidized to sulfate while hydrogen sulfide is transformed into thiosulfate.

Myoglobin and Hemoglobin

Myoglobin symbol Mb or MB is an iron - and oxygen -binding protein found in the skeletal muscle tissue of vertebrates in general and in almost all mammals. Compared to hemoglobin , myoglobin has a higher affinity for oxygen and does not have cooperative-binding with oxygen like hemoglobin does. In humans, myoglobin is only found in the bloodstream after muscle injury.

High concentrations of myoglobin in muscle cells allow organisms to hold their breath for a longer period of time. Diving mammals such as whales and seals have muscles with particularly high abundance of myoglobin. Myoglobin was the first protein to have its three-dimensional structure revealed by X-ray crystallography. Through observing these changes in myoglobin-depleted mice, it is hypothesised that myoglobin function relates to increased oxygen transport to muscle, and to oxygen storage; as well, it serves as a scavenger of reactive oxygen species.

In humans, myoglobin is encoded by the MB gene. Like hemoglobin, myoglobin is a cytoplasmic protein that binds oxygen on a heme group. It harbors only one globulin group, whereas hemoglobin has four. Although its heme group is identical to those in Hb, Mb has a higher affinity for oxygen than does hemoglobin.

This difference is related to its different role: whereas hemoglobin transports oxygen, myoglobin's function is to store oxygen. Myoglobin contains hemes, pigments responsible for the colour of red meat. The colour that meat takes is partly determined by the degree of oxidation of the myoglobin. If meat has been exposed to nitrites , it will remain pink because the iron atom is bound to NO, nitric oxide true of, e. Grilled meats can also take on a reddish pink "smoke ring" that comes from the heme center binding to carbon monoxide.

Notably, the surface of this raw meat also displays the pink color, which is usually associated in consumers' minds with fresh meat. This artificially induced pink color can persist, reportedly up to one year. Myoglobin is released from damaged muscle tissue rhabdomyolysis , which has very high concentrations of myoglobin. Myoglobin is a sensitive marker for muscle injury, making it a potential marker for heart attack in patients with chest pain.

Myoglobin belongs to the globin superfamily of proteins, and as with other globins, consists of eight alpha helices connected by loops. Myoglobin contains amino acids. Myoglobin contains a porphyrin ring with an iron at its center. A proximal histidine group His is attached directly to iron, and a distal histidine group His hovers near the opposite face. The binding of O 2 causes substantial structural change at the Fe center, which shrinks in radius and moves into the center of N4 pocket.

O 2 -binding induces "spin-pairing": the five-coordinate ferrous deoxy form is high spin and the six coordinate oxy form is low spin and diamagnetic. Many models of myoglobin have been synthesized as part of a broad interest in transition metal dioxygen complexes.

A well known example is the picket fence porphyrin , which consists of a ferrous complex of a sterically bulky derivative of tetraphenylporphyrin. The O 2 substrate adopts a bent geometry, occupying the sixth position of the iron center. In nature, such deactivation pathways are suppressed by protein matrix that prevents close approach of the Fe-porphyrin assemblies. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

Highly oxidative muscle fibers contain a lot of myoglobin. It has two functions in muscle: it stores oxygen for use during heavy exercise, and it enhances diffusion through the cytosol by carrying the oxygen.

By binding O2, myoglobin Mb provides a second diffusive pathway for O2 through the cell cytosol. Encyclopedia of Respiratory Medicine. Myoglobin Mb is a heme-containing globular protein that is found in abundance in myocyte cells of heart and skeletal muscle. Complications in Anesthesia. Myoglobin serves both as an O2 buffer and to store O2 in muscle. Thus, myoglobin remains fully saturated at O2 tensions between 15 and 30 mm Hg and unloads its O2 to the muscle mitochondria only at very low O2 tensions.

Critical Care. Clinical Biochemistry. Myoglobin is a heme protein found in both skeletal and cardiac muscle. Myoglobin is typically released in the circulation as early as 1 h after myocardial infarction, Myoglobin has poor clinical specificity due to the presence of large quantities of myoglobin in skeletal muscle. Some studies suggest adding the myoglobin test to the troponin I test in order to improve diagnostic value [4].

4.1: Myoglobin, Hemoglobin, and their Ligands

The heme fits into a hydrophobic crevice in the proteins with the proprionate groups exposed to solvent. In the absence of dioxygen, the 6 ligand is missing. A distal His E7 is on the opposite side of the heme ring, but too far to coordinate with the Fe. When dioxgen binds, it occupies the 6th coordination site and pulls the Fe into the plane of the ring, leading to octahedral geometry. The distal His keeps these ligands including dioxygen bound in a bent, non-optimal geometry. This minimizes the chances of CO poisoning. Fetal Hb has higher affinity for dioxygen than adult Hb.

Сначала она едва заметно вздрогнула, словно от озноба, и тут же ее захлестнула волна отчаяния. Приоткрыв дрожащие губы, она попыталась что-то сказать, но слов не последовало. Не спуская со Стратмора ледяного взгляда, Сьюзан сделала шаг вперед и протянула к нему руку с зажатым в ней предметом. Стратмор был почти уверен, что в руке Сьюзан сжимала беретту, нацеленную ему в живот, но пистолет лежал на полу, стиснутый в пальцах Хейла. Предмет, который она держала, был гораздо меньшего размера. Стратмор опустил глаза и тут же все понял. Время для него остановилось.

Такой поиск, по существу, представляет собой команду компьютеру просмотреть все строки знаков на жестком диске, сравнить их с данными громадного по объему словаря и пометить те из них, которые кажутся бессмысленными или произвольными. Это сложнейшая работа, заключающаяся в постоянном отсеивании лишнего, но она вполне выполнима. Сьюзан понимала, что, по всей логике, именно ей предстояло решить эту задачу. Она вздохнула, надеясь, что ей не придется раскаиваться в том, чем она собиралась заняться. - Если все пойдет хорошо, то результат будет примерно через полчаса. - Тогда за дело, - сказал Стратмор, положил ей на плечо руку и повел в темноте в направлении Третьего узла. Над их головами куполом раскинулось усыпанное звездами небо.

 Не стоит, - удивился Беккер - Я зашел куда не следовало. - Моя просьба покажется вам безумной, - сказала она, заморгав красными глазами, - но не могли бы вы одолжить мне немного денег.

Но это была чужая епархия. В конце концов ей пришлось смириться. Когда они в ту ночь отправились спать, она старалась радоваться с ним вместе, но что-то в глубине души говорило ей: все это кончится плохо. Она оказалась права, но никогда не подозревала насколько. - Вы заплатили ему десять тысяч долларов? - Она повысила голос.

 Наличными, прямо сейчас, - сказал Беккер, доставая из кармана пиджака конверт. Я очень хочу домой. Росио покачала головой: - Не могу.

Расстояние между ним и Беккером быстро сокращалось. Он нащупал в кармане пиджака пистолет. До сих пор Дэвиду Беккеру необыкновенно везло, и не следует и дальше искушать судьбу.

Иной раз человек в моем положении… - Он замялся, словно принимая трудное решение.  - Иногда человек в моем положении вынужден лгать людям, которых любит. Сегодня как раз такой день.  - В глазах его читалась печаль.

 Я постараюсь.  - Вопрос национальной безопасности… - Если вам не повезет, - сказала Росио, бросив взгляд на пухлый конверт, выпирающий в кармане Беккера, - пожалуйста, заходите. Мой дружок скоро заснет как убитый. Постучите тихонько. Я найду свободную комнату и покажу вам Испанию с такой стороны, что вам будет что вспомнить, - И она сладко причмокнула губами.

И в тот же миг осознала свою ошибку. Она ощутила запах Хейла, но повернулась слишком поздно. И тут же забилась, задыхаясь от удушья. Ее снова сжали уже знакомые ей стальные руки, а ее голова была намертво прижата к груди Хейла. - Боль внизу нестерпима, - прошипел он ей на ухо.

Согласно информации, появившейся в окне, команда была подана менее двадцати минут. Сьюзан помнила, что за последние двадцать минут вводила только свой персональный код, когда выходила переговорить со Стратмором.

Вы немец. Мужчина нерешительно кивнул. Беккер заговорил на чистейшем немецком: - Мне нужно с вами поговорить. Мужчина смотрел на него недовольно.

Танкадо ухватился за это предложение. Через три года он ушел из Ай-би-эм, поселился в Нью-Йорке и начал писать программы. Его подхватила новая волна увлечения криптографией. Он писал алгоритмы и зарабатывал неплохие деньги.
