310. Different Types of Haemoglobin

Description

This Biology Factsheet summarises:
• That a haemoglobin molecule consists of subunits, each made up of a polypeptide chain and an iron-containing haem group.
• Differences in the amino acids in the polypeptide chain result in different haemoglobins with different oxygen-transporting properties.
• That different organisms live in different environments with different oxygen availability. Their haemoglobin is adapted to the way of life of the organism concerned.
