Hemopexin can scavenge free heme that can cause oxidative damage to human body.


Heme possess oxidative capacity that can cause damage to cells inside human body. These heme are usually released by heme-binding protein during internal hemorrhage, hemolysis, and other cell damage. A protein called hemopexin (which have the highest affinity for heme among all heme.binding proteins) works well for this particular role as heme scavenger.
