Method Coexpression of di-a-globin and b-globin in Escherichia coli in the presence of exogenous heme yielded high levels of soluble, functional recombinant human hemoglobin (rHb1.1).
Comments Table gives umol amino acid/gram of protein. Calculated from Primary Source assuming that 55% of protein dry weight is protein. For table giving amount of amino acid in cell dry weight see BNID 103344
