Regarding oxygen binding with hemoglobin - choose the incorrect statement :


( A ) Binding of oxygen with haemoglobin is primarily related to partial pressure of O2
( B ) O2 can bind with haemoglobin in a reversible manner to form oxyhaemoglobin.
( C ) Each haemoglobin molecule can carry a maximum of four atoms of Oxygen.
( D ) Partial pressure of CO2, hydrogen ion concentration and temperature are the other factors which can interfere with this binding.

1 Answer

(C) is the right answer.

O2 can bind with haemoglobin in a reversible manner to form oxyhaemoglobin. Each haemoglobin molecule can carry a maximum of four molecules of O2. Binding of oxygen with haemoglobin is primarily related to partial pressure of O2. Partial pressure of CO2, hydrogen ion concentration and temperature are the other factors which can interfere with this binding.
