Concept #1: Fetal Hemoglobin

Practice: Fetal hemoglobin binds oxygen with a ___________ affinity than adult hemoglobin, because it lacks the binding site for ______, which is an allosteric ____________ of oxygen binding to adult hemoglobin.

Practice: Why is the decreased affinity of fetal hemoglobin for BPG advantageous?
