Cisplatin and porphyrin(->heme complex->myoglobin->hemoglobin) seem like important biological examples that have come up.

Cisplatin is for cancer prevention. On Marshmallow, this explanation was posted:

Chemotherapy drug, Cl on same side are involved in the binding of cisplatin to Guanine base pairs in
DNA that are adjacent or near each other. The binding at 2 base pairs allows cisplatin to block DNA
replication machinery and thus stop cancerous growth. See notes for more detail.

Porphyn is part of heme group. I recommend this site:

How do hemoglobin complexes create myoglobin; do they bind together, and in what way? I know there are four hemoglobin subunits, but I don't understand how they fit together.
