What do we need to know about Hemoglobin and Myoglobin? How would they be tested?

we’ll probably need to know what was on Marshmallow. There’s a question on there on myo/hemoglobin asking for some information on the two. We’ll probably also have to know it’s function.

Myoglobin transports oxygen in muscle cells ( heme complex + protein -> myoglobin -> Fe binds to oxygen)

Hemoglobin transports O2 in the blood by binding 4 O2

4 myoglobin make up one hemoglobin. Oxygen binds to myoglobin, and it is transferred in hemoglobin.
