• type of hemoglobin
  • Tube worms ( Riftia pachyptila ) and clams ( Calpytogena magnifica ) who live in association with chemolithotrophs at the bottom of the sea have a unique type of hemoglobin that provides the bacteria with a source of oxygen and hydrogen sulfide necessary for chemoautotrophic metabolism. (cambrianfoundation.org)
  • unlike
  • Hemerythrin affinity for carbon monoxide (CO) is actually lower than its affinity for O2, unlike hemoglobin which has a very high affinity for CO. Hemerythrin's low affinity for CO poisoning reflects the role of hydrogen-bonding in the binding of O2, a pathway mode that is incompatible with CO complexes which usually do not engage in hydrogen bonding.

  • neuroglobin
  • Neuroglobin were in the past found only in vertebrate neurons, but recently in 2013, were found in the neurons of unrelated protostomes, like photosynthesis acoel as well as radiata such as jelly fish. (wikipedia.org)
  • commonly found
  • Hydrothermal vents are commonly found near volcanically active places, areas where tectonic plates are moving apart at spreading centers, ocean basins, and hotspots. (wikipedia.org)
  • Opossums have evolved an opposable thumb, a feature which is also commonly found in the non-related primates. (wikipedia.org)
  • species
  • In 1825 J. F. Engelhard discovered that the ratio of iron to protein is identical in the hemoglobins of several species. (wikipedia.org)
  • Even within a species, different variants of hemoglobin always exist, although one sequence is usually a "most common" one in each species. (wikipedia.org)
  • It has a cosmopolitan distribution: the species is found throughout the Americas, Europe and Australia. (wikipedia.org)
  • pigments
  • Many worms have haemoglobin, but others and also most molluscs have different and more primitive oxygen-carrying pigments, which have not survived into higher forms of evolution. (encyclopedia.com)
  • biochemist
  • They were first called accessory factors because in 1906 it was found by English biochemist Sir F. G. Hopkins Hopkins, Sir Frederick Gowland, 1861-1947, English biochemist, educated at Cambridge and the Univ. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • laboratory
  • A 1965 talk by Vernon Ingram interested him in haemoglobin synthesis, and at a Greek conference in 1966 on the subject, he persuaded the hematologist and geneticist Irving London to allow him to work in his laboratory at Albert Einstein College of Medicine in New York, staying from July to October 1966. (wikipedia.org)
  • nucleus
  • Sometimes the word mutation is used broadly to include variations resulting from aberrations of chromosomes chromosome , structural carrier of hereditary characteristics, found in the nucleus of every cell and so named for its readiness to absorb dyes. (thefreedictionary.com)
  • dynamics
  • Myoglobin and hemoglobin are of obvious critical importance to vertebrate life, yet they are also studied because they serve as excellent, well-characterized models for illustrating the principles of protein structure, dynamics, and function. (wikipedia.org)
  • similar
  • The chlorophyll of the leaves and the hemoglobin of the blood are similar in constitution. (dictionary.com)
  • A similar but shorter proteoglycan (UNC52) is found in Caenorhabditis elegans which has 3 repeats of LDLRA. (expasy.org)
  • On the other hand, the intron density of D. pulex genome is similar to that of Apis mellifera, which in turn is twice of that found in Drosophila. (wikipedia.org)
  • It also fills a similar ecological niche and is found in the same biomes. (wikipedia.org)
  • known
  • After the death of both his parents, Hunt found his father had worked at Bush House, then the headquarters of BBC World Service radio, most likely in intelligence, although it is not known what he actually did. (wikipedia.org)
  • crustaceans
  • The bacteria found in the caves we study are chemolithoautotrophs, and they are utilizing sulfur from the bedrock to fuel their life cycle and possibly support the higher order crustaceans, like crayfish, isopods, and amphipods, that also are found here. (cambrianfoundation.org)
  • They were subsequently found to be common among crustaceans and are utilized by some land arthropods such as the tarantula Eurypelma californicum, the emperor scorpion, and the centipede Scutigera coleoptrata. (wikipedia.org)
