Reduction in potency and reversal of left-shifting activity of BW12C with the major and minor components of chicken hemoglobin.

Abstract:

The effects of the left-shifting, anti-sickling compound BW12C (5-(2-formyl-3-hydroxyphenoxy)pentanoic acid) on the oxygen saturation curve of whole chicken blood and the isolated major (AII) and minor (AI) components of chicken hemoglobin have been studied. The results support the postulated major binding mode for BW12C to human hemoglobin of bridging between the alpha-chain terminal amino groups in the oxy conformation with an important hydrophobic component contributed mainly by Pro 77 alp...
