Sorry, no etymologies found.


  • _ But upon comparing the corresponding substances hemoglobins in different species of a genus it is generally found that they differ the one from the other to a greater or less degree; the differences being such that when complete crystallographic data are available the different _species can be distinguished_ by these _differences in their hemoglobins_’ ....

  • More importantly, Menten is believed to be the first to study human hemoglobins using electrophoresis (an innovation widely credited to Linus Pauling, though her work on this predated his by many years).

  • Both PFCs and hemoglobins are a fraction the size of a red cell.

  • We assumed that the same mechanism that is involved in differentiation and maturation of the reticulocyte is also involved in the removal of "naturally occurring" mutant abnormal hemoglobins that are synthesized in different hemoglobinopathies, such as thalassemias and sickle cell anemia, and also in the destruction of the amino acid analogs

  • Healthy hemoglobins have four chains—two alpha chains and two beta chains.

    The Edge of Evolution

  • Random molecular motions always cause individual hemoglobins to bump into each other.

  • "It's very rare, if not unheard of, for people to get transfused if their hemoglobins are 10 or higher," said John Jenkins, director of the FDA's office of new drugs.

  • Moreover, to avoid being anoxic in the first place, it can remodel its gills to boost oxygen uptake and it is in the possession of hemoglobins with higher oxygen affinity than any other vertebrate hemoglobin.
