|Abstract:||It is now widely accepted that myoglobin is not simply an O2 storage/delivery system but, depending on oxygen concentration, it exerts other fundamental physiological roles, as in response to hypoxia in tumor cells. In Humans the two most expressed myoglobins differ by a single aminoacid (Lysine to Glutammate). Since natives from Tibet are characterized by an overexpression of the “Glutammate” isoform, started to emerge the idea of a response to high altitude evolutionary adaptation. However, this is not yet supported by any structure/function investigation. We performed hundred nanoseconds MD simulations to investigate the structure and dynamics of Myoglobins and surface water.
