Featured Product: Myoglobin

Introduction

Myoglobin is an iron- and oxygen-binding protein, serving as a reserve oxygen supply and facilitating oxygen transport in muscles. Myoglobin is a part of the globin superfamily of proteins, consisting of eight alpha helices connected by loops, with a total content of 154 amino acids and a molecular weight of 17.7 kDa. It is structurally similar to hemoglobin, which is the iron- and oxygen-binding protein in blood.

Lee Bio manufactures myoglobin from human hearts for use in research and medical diagnostics manufacturing. Custom preparations, technical support, bulk quantities and aliquoting available, email Info@leebio.com for more details.


Diagnostic Relevance

When myoglobin is found in the bloodstream, this is abnormal and can be diagnostically relevant. Myoglobin is a sensitive marker for muscle injury and can be used as a potential marker in the blood for detection of heart attacks. Myoglobin is released from damaged muscle tissue into the bloodstream and is filtered by the kidneys, potentially causing acute kidney injury.
