Hemoglobin has been involved in the most significant advances in our understanding of modern genetics and molecular biology. Now, hemoglobin is again central to a new area: Development of artificial blood (blood substitute.)
This volume of Methods in Enzymology and its companion Volume 231 are indispensable to anyone with a serious interest in this emerging field. They completely updated and extended the information presented in Volume 76, which was published more than 10 years ago.

Review quote

Praise for the Series
"The Methods in Enzymology series represents the gold-standard."
"Incomparably useful."
"It is a true 'methods' series, including almost every detail from basic theory to sources of equipment and reagents, with timely documentation provided on each page."
"The series has been following the growing, changing and creation of new areas of science. It should be on the shelves of all libraries in the world as a whole collection."
"The appearance of another volume in that excellent series, Methods in Enzymology, is always a cause for appreciation for those who wish to successfully carry out a particular technique or prepare an enzyme or metabolic intermediate without the tiresome prospect of searching through unfamiliar literature and perhaps selecting an unproven method which is not easily reproduced."
"If we had some way to find the work most often consulted in the laboratory, it could well be the multi-volume series Methods in Enzymology...a great work."
"A series that has established itself as a definitive reference for biochemists."
