Abstract : An outline of present ideas concerning the arrangement, folding, and chemistry of the polypeptide chains of hemoglobin is given with some references to present knowledge of myoglobin. New material includes a partial amino acid sequence of the beta-chain of horse hemoglobin, details concerning the amono acids lining the heme pocket of horse hemoglobin, and the effects of carboxypeptidases A and B on horse oxy- and horse deoxy-hemoglobin. The kinetics of the latter reactions are not simple. The C-terminal amono acids are released more rapidly from the oxygenated form. (Author)
