...years of study have led to the knowledge that hemoglobin uses mechanisms of cooperativity
to optimize its function; that is to say, to collect the greatest amount of...oxygen possible in the lungs and release it in tissues. These mechanisms of cooperativity
are related to changes in the structure of the hemoglobin protein. However,...

is a phenomenon in biology displayed by enzymes or receptors that have multiple binding sites .
When substrate bonds to the active site of one enzymatic subunit, the rest of the subunits are stimulated and become active.
...ators, OR1, OR2, and OR3, in the order OR1 > OR2 > OR3.
Binding of a cI dimer to OR1 enhances binding of a second cI dimer to OR2, an effect called cooperativity
. Thus, OR1 and OR2 are almost always simultaneously occupied by cI. However, this does not increase the affinity between cI and OR3, which will be...
