A little guide for advanced search:

  • Tip 1. You can use quotes "" to search for an exact expression.
    Example: "cell division"
  • Tip 2. You can use + symbol to restrict results containing all words.
    Example: +cell +stem
  • Tip 3. You can use + and - symbols to force inclusion or exclusion of specific words.
    Example: +cell -stem
e.g. searching for members in projects tagged cancer

Hemoglobin I (HbI) from Lucina pectinata is a monomeric protein composed of 143 amino acids with high sulfide affinity. Its unique heme pocket contains three residues not commonly found in vertebrate globins: Phe 29 (B10), Gln 64 (E7), and Phe 68 (E11), which are thought to be important for high affinity for hydrogen sulfide. Recombinant HbI (rHbI) and several site-directed mutants were cloned and expressed in Escherichia coli yielding high amounts of protein. The highest rHbI protein yield was obtained when the HbI cDNA was cloned into the pET28 (a+) expression vector, transformed into BLi5 cells, the induction performed with 1 mM IPTG at 30 degrees C and TB medium was supplemented with 30 microg/mL hemin chloride and 1% glucose. The highest yield obtained of HbI was 32 mg/L of culture using Fernbach flasks. UV/Visible spectral analysis showed that rHbI binds heme and ESI-MS shows that its molecular weight corresponds to the expected size. Kinetic studies with H2S confirmed that rHbI and HbI have identical binding properties, where the kON for the clam’s Hb is 2.73×10(4)M-1s-1 and for rHbI is 2.43×10(4)M-1s-1.
