Answer:

Hemoglobin is a protein carried by red blood cells. Each molecule of hemoglobin can carry 4 oxygen molecules. In the lungs, hemoglobin has a higher affinity for oxygen than myoglobin. Hemoglobin will bind one oxygen molecule and then the shape changes to increase affinity to oxygen for the subsequent binding of the next 3 oxygen molecules. Hemoglobin will then travel throughout the body on red blood cells and exchange oxygen to myoglobin. In other tissues myoglobin has a higher affinity for oxygen than hemoglobin thus, hemoglobin will give up its oxygen molecules to myoglobin.

Answer:

1. The virus infects host cell via binding with a specific receptor. 2. Viral genome material is created in the cell via the use of host cell materials. The virus genome will be translated to proteins via host ribosomes. 3. Progeny release, where the virus will leave the cell either by lysing the cell or by fusing with cell membrane.
