This report establishes a correlation between two known properties of the human embryonic hemoglobins-- their weak subunit assemblies as demonstrated here by gel filtration at very dilute protein concentrations and their high oxygen affinities and reduced cooperativities reported previously by others but without a mechanistic basis. We demonstrate here that their high oxygen affinities are a consequence of their weak assemblies. Weak vs strong hemoglobin tetramers represent a regulatory mechanism to modulate oxygen binding capacity by altering the equilibrium between the various steps in the assembly process that can be described as an inverse allosteric effect.
