N/A
Organism
Gorilla gorilla gorilla (Western lowland gorilla)
Status
Reviewed-Annotation score: -Experimental evidence at protein leveli

Functioni

Involved in oxygen transport from the lung to the various peripheral tissues.

Miscellaneous

Two kinds of alpha-3 chains were found in one gorilla. An Asx replaces one Ser (at position 131, 133, or 138) in the tryptic peptide comprising residues 128-139.
