he·mo·glo·bin

 (hē′mə-glō′bĭn)
n.
The protein in the red blood cells of vertebrates that carries oxygen from the lungs to tissues and that consists of four polypeptide subunits, each of which is bound to an iron-containing heme molecule.

[Ultimately short for hematinoglobulin : hematin + globulin.]

he•mo•glo•bin

(ˈhi məˌgloʊ bɪn, ˈhɛm ə-)

n.
a conjugated protein in red blood cells, comprising globin and iron-containing heme, that transports oxygen from the lungs to the tissues of the body.
[1865–70; earlier hematoglobulin. See hemo-, globin]
he`mo•glo′bic, adj.

he·mo·glo·bin

(hē′mə-glō′bĭn)
An iron-containing protein in the blood of many animals that, in vertebrates, carries oxygen from the lungs to the tissues of the body and carries carbon dioxide from the tissues to the lungs. Hemoglobin is contained in the red blood cells of vertebrates and gives these cells their characteristic color. Hemoglobin is also found in many invertebrates, where it circulates freely in the blood. See Note at red blood cell.

hemoglobin

1. An oxygen-carrying pigment found in the red blood cells of vertebrate animals.
2. The iron-rich, oxygen-transporting pigment in red blood cells which gives them their color.
