Hemoglobin is found in the red blood cells and is the major O 2 carrying molecule of vertebrates. • In lungs, hemoglobin binds O 2 . In muscles and other metabolizing tissues, hemoglobin releases O 2 and myoglobin binds O 2 . How do these proteins bind and release O 2 in a controlled reversible manner? Hemoglobin xample of protein structure and function:
