    The lecture Movement of CO2 by Kevin Ahern, PhD is from the course Amino Acid Metabolism.

    Included Quiz Questions

    1. Carbonic anhydrase
    2. Carbonic hydrase
    3. Carbonic decarboxylase
    4. Carbonic lyase
    5. Carbonic ligase
    1. Carbon dioxide competes with the oxygen to bind to the heme unit of the hemoglobin
    2. The binding of CO2 to the hemoglobin leads to a structural change in the hemoglobin and causes the release of O2 from the heme group
    3. The bicarbonate is the major traveling form of CO2 solubilized in the blood, whereas a very little proportion of CO2 gets combine with hemoglobin
    4. The carbon monoxide competes with oxygen to bind with the Fe atom of the heme group in hemoglobin
    5. A histidine entity present above the heme group in the hemoglobin favors the binding of oxygen over CO
