Unformatted text preview: a) A inhibits an enzyme involved in the degradation of 2,3-biphosphoglycerate (2,3-BPG), thereby increasing its steady-state concentration in the erythrocyte. b) B binds to ion channels in the erythrocyte plasma membrane, thereby increasing intracellular pH. c) C binds to the α subunits of Hb in the R conformation but not in the T conformation. d) D induces the synthesis of the Hb γ subunit in adults, such that HbA m (the modified form of HbA) is now a mixture of α 2 β 2 , α 2 βγ , and α 2 γ 2 ....
