General description

This product is provided as delivered and specified by the issuing Pharmacopoeia. All information provided in support of this product, including MSDS and any product information leaflets have been developed and issued under the Authority of the issuing Pharmacopoeia.
For further information and support please go to the website of the issuing Pharmacopoeia.

Application

The solubility of α-elastin has been applied to construction of elastin-mimetic biomaterials.

Biochem/physiol Actions

Oxygen transporter. The Fe2+/Fe3+ balance is a physiological indicator of blood oxygenation; deoxygenated hemoglobin accessorizes a feedback loop by reducing nitrite to NO, a vasodilator which enhances blood flow to oxygen-deprived tissues.

Caution

Since native hemoglobin is readily oxidized in air, these preparations may be predominantly methemoglobin.
