Inversion of the Bohr effect upon oxygen binding to 24-meric tarantula hemocyanin.

Sterner, Reinhard ; Decker, H.


The Bohr effect describes the usually negative coupling between the binding of oxygen and the binding of protons to respiratory proteins. It was first described for hemoglobin and provides for an optimal oxygen supply of the organism under changing physiological conditions. Our measurements of both oxygen and proton binding to the 24-meric tarantula hemocyanin establish the unusual case where a ...
