What is the function and structure of hemoglobin?

1 Answer


Hemoglobin structure:

1. A protein, which is a best example for quaternary structure… it contains four subunits, which are co-ordination in nature.

2. The iron atom which is in ferrous state [Fe2+]... this iron atom is surrounded by four subunits... these subunits are held together by hydrogen bonds...


The main role is to transport oxygen and carbon dioxide.
