Team at Chuo University prepares artificial oxygen carrier from albumin and hemoglobin

The group of Professor Teruyuki KOMATSU and others have prepared covalent core–shell structured protein clusters of hemoglobin (Hb) and human serum albumin (HSA) (HbX-HSAm) (m = 2, 3) with by linking Hb surface lysins to HSA cysteine-34 via an α-succinimidyl-ε-maleimide cross-linker. Structures were determined by TEM. This O2-carrying hemoprotein cluster with strongly negative surface net […]
