  1. true or false? oxygen must be transported in the blood from the lungs, where the partial pressure of oxygen is low, to the tissues, where the partial pressure of oxygen is higher.
    fasle, oxygen must be transported in the blood from the lungs, where the partial pressure of oxygen is high, to the tissues, where the partial pressure of oxygen is lower.
  2. describe the two models for cooperative binding
    cooperative binding can be either concerted or sequential. 

    According to the concerted model, when one subunit of an enzyme binds its substrate, all of the other subunits are converted to R state.

    According to the sequential model, with each substrate that binds to the enzyme, it becomes easier for the other subunits to bind the substrate
  3. does hemoglobin conform to the concerted model of cooperativity or the sequential model?
    it exhibits characteristics of both models. one can say that it conforms to a combined model
