General description

Hemoglobin is present in the red-blood corpuscles (RBCs) of vertebrates. It is composed of a globular structure with four α-β sub-units.


Hemoglobin from bovine blood has been used as a supplement in tryptone yeast extract salts and glucose (TYESG) agar for performing extracellular proteolytic activity of Flavobacterium psychrophilum. It has also been used as a standard in Raman spectrometry.
The solubility of α-elastin has been applied to construction of elastin-mimetic biomaterials.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Oxygen transporter. The Fe2+/Fe3+ balance is a physiological indicator of blood oxygenation; deoxygenated hemoglobin accessorizes a feedback loop by reducing nitrite to NO, a vasodilator which enhances blood flow to oxygen-deprived tissues.


1 piece contains 100 g hemoglobin powder


Since native hemoglobin is readily oxidized in air, these preparations may be predominantly methemoglobin.

Growing evidence suggests that focal seizures are preceded by haemodynamic changes. Specifically, changes in cerebral blood flow, blood oxygen level-dependent magnetic resonance imaging, and near-infrared spectroscopy measurements of haemoglobin have been observed in the seizure focus and other brain regions
