Given our discussion on maintenance of membrane fluidity, what would the lipid composition of an E. coli cell be like if grown at 25 o C? Compare the fatty acid composition of the two conditions relative to chain lengths and unsaturations. c) (6 pt) What is the effect on the binding of O 2 to hemoglobin (increased or decreased affinity) if the pH of the environment increases. Explain fully in terms of molecular interaction, T/R state transformation, and O 2 binding affinity....
