Cooperative ligand binding myoglobin to hemoglobin

Ligand-binding sites may be identical when all sites in the macromolecule are empty, but when one site is occupied, the binding strength (i. e., the binding equilibrium constant) of the remaining sites changes. If the strength of binding increases with each additional ligand, this behavior is called cooperative binding. If subsequent additions of ligand to the same macromolecule are less strongly associated than its predecessors, the behavior is termed anticooperative.

We respect Nature and it gives us its bounty, but in the recent past greedy money hungry corporations have made us all so destructive, so wasteful.
