Researchers show how cellular stress regulates production of hemoglobin

Tue, 04/04/2017 - 18:43
Our ability to breathe oxygen is critical to our survival. This process is mediated by the hemoglobin in our blood, which carries oxygen. Since air contains less oxygen on high mountains, the body is under pressure to make hemoglobin rapidly -- a stressful time.
