Oxygenated Hemoglobin Hb

$185.00

This 4-inch reproduction of human Hemoglobin is 18 Million times larger than actual 55 Angstrom in diameter protein. Hemoglobin is the protein inside red blood cells that transports oxygen molecules throughout the body. This model is made from x-ray crystallography data of Oxygengated Hemoglobin (PDB ID: 1HH0). Each spherical unit on the model represents the position of a single atom. Colored in red are the protein’s HEME Groups, disk-like structures with an Iron atom core. It is to this Iron atom core that binds O2 molecules (Blue) bind. Just like magenets are attracted to iron nails, so too are O2 molecues attracted to Heme Groups. This is a fun model to introduce molecular biology to your friends, children and colleagues.

Each model is custom made from high quality plastic resins by craftspeople here on the east coast. Included with each purchase is a base for the model to sit, an informational card explaining more about the protein’s function and structure. Purchase now, and receive an advanced copy of our first electronic Book:The Story of Hemoglobin: Protein from inside Red Blood Cells. due in fall 2014. This is a limited edition series, order while supplies last.
