Unformatted text preview: PROTEIN FUNCTION I Ligand Binding-Hemoglobin non-cooperative suggests one mode of binding and release if binding is tight in lungs, release in tissues is weak if release is easy in the tissues, binding is weak in the lungs Hb and O 2 Binding ligand binding here affects binding here and here and here ` activating modulator binding the ligand at one site makes it easier to bind ligands at other sites.
