  • Patent number: 6160098
    Abstract: The present invention relates to cross-linked hemoglobins, and particularly to methods of controlling the functionality of such hemoglobins. The controlled functionalities include the P.sub.50 and the Hill coefficient. The present invention provides methods for producing a cross-linked hemoglobin with specific final functionalities by regulating the amount of both total hemoglobin and R-state hemoglobin prior to cross-linking, and by modulating cross-linking reaction conditions such as time, temperature, pH and the ratio of cross-linking reagent to hemoglobin.
