Concept #1: Oxygen Binding to Hemoglobin

Concept #2: Cooperative Binding

Concept #3: Adult vs. Fetal Hemoglobin

Concept #4: Factors Affecting O2 Binding-- Bohr Effect et al.

Practice: In which of the following locations will hemoglobin be most saturated with oxygen? (Choose all that apply.)

Practice: In which of the following locations will hemoglobin bind oxygen least avidly (i.e. least “tightly”—be most likely to let oxygen unbind)?

Practice: A 16-year-old cross country athlete is running up a hill. As a result, his quadriceps muscles (in his legs) generate excess lactic acid, causing a decrease in the pH around those muscles. Which of the following describes the direction of the resulting shift in the hemoglobin saturation curves for the hemoglobin in the blood around his quadriceps muscles?
