Why? ______________ O2 affinity and more O2 is bound to Hb Sickle Cell Anemia o o o o A single amino acid substitution: ________ ________ (E6V) HbS Fibers (B & T Fig. 3.14) The hydrophobic residue fits perfectly into hydrophobic pocket Increased resistance to malaria Sickle forms in deoxy T-state at capillaries, making it harder to transport O2 • Carbon Monoxide Poisoning o o o Lehn Box 5-1 CO is a colorless, odorless gas that binds to Hb with a greater affinity than O2 Anemia vs. CO poisoning Anemic Hb are more ready to release O2 because CO has a higher affinity than O2 to Hb, so anemic Hb will still deliver O2 whereas CO-Hb will not dissociate as easily and therefore no O2 transport will occur. 1 ...
