Abstract
Ruminant haemoglobin (Hb) extracted from river buffalo (Bubalus bubali s) has been purified and crystallized. Two different Hb forms of the p henotype BB gave isomorphous crystals which diffracted to 2.8 angstrom resolution and were not sensitive to radiation damage. Crystals of CO Hb have space group P2(1)2(1)2(1) with unit-cell parameters a = 54.8, b = 64.0, c = 158.6 angstrom, and contain one Hb molecule per asymmet ric unit.
