...Frank B. Jensen SUMMARY Autoxidation of oxyhaemoglobin (oxyHb) to methaemoglobin was measured at different temperatures in haemoglobin solutions from Atlantic hagfish, river lamprey, common carp, yellowfin tuna and pig. The aims were to evaluate the impact of the absent distal histidine in hagfish...

...C. J. Brauner; A. L. Val; D. J. Randall ABSTRACT Nitrite oxidizes haemoglobin (Hb) to methaemoglobin (MetHb), which is unable to bind oxygen. Nitrite exposure can therefore be used as a tool to manipulate the oxygen-carrying capacity of the blood without changing haematocrit. The objective...

...Frank B. Jensen ABSTRACT Red cell function was studied in carp by a combination of in vivo and in vitro experiments with nitrite as the perturbing agent. In vivo accumulation of nitrite caused a marked increase in the red cell methaemoglobin content, and reduced the mean cellular volume. The oxygen...
