hemoglobinopathy, haemoglobinopathy (s) (noun); hemoglobinopathies; haemoglobinopathies (pl)
A blood disorder which is caused by a genetically determined change in the molecular structure of hemoglobin: Hemoglobinopathy is an ailment due to abnormalities in the hemoglobin molecule, the best known being "sickle cell anemia" in which there is a single amino acid substitution ("valine" for "glutamate") in position six of the beta chain. In other cases one of the globin chains is synthesised at a slower rate, despite being normal in structure.
hemoglobinuria (s) (noun), hemoglobinurias (pl)
The presence of hemoglobin in the urine: Hemoglobinuria is caused by a large amount of intravascular hemolysis in which an excessive amount of red blood cells are destroyed. This process releases free haemoglobins into the plasma. Surplus haemoglobins are filtered out by the kidneys and is excreted into the urin.
hemoglobinuric (adjective), more hemoglobinuric, most hemoglobinuric
Relating to the existence of hemoglobin in the urin: Jill was at the urologist's for a check-up and a hemoglobinuric condition was detected in her urin.
macroglobulinemia (s) (noun), macroglobulinemias (pl)

mucoglobulin (s) (noun), mucoglobulins (pl)
A glycoprotein (molecule that consists of a carbohydrate, sugars and starches, plus a protein), or mucoprotein (complex protein found in mucous secretions): Mucoglobulin consists of globulin, a protein component.
myxoglobulosis (s) (noun), myxoglobuloses (pl)

ovoglobulin (s) (noun), ovoglobulins (pl)

oxyhemoglobin (s) (noun), oxyhemoglobins (pl)
A familiar protein is the one in red blood corpuscles that combines with oxygen in the lungs and carries it to the cells of the tissues where it gives it up again: When hemoglobin is combined with oxygen, it becomes oxyhemoglobin.
oxyhemoglobinometer (s) (noun), oxyhemoglobinometers (pl)
An apparatus for the measurement of the amount of oxygen in the blood: During Bob's practicum in the hospital, he learned that an oxyhemoglobinometer was needed to access the level of oxygen in a patient's blood.
pseudoglobulin (s) (noun), pseudoglobulins (pl)
A simple protein insoluble in sodium sulfate solutions or in half-saturated ammonium sulfate: Pseudoglobulin is soluble in pure water.
subglobular (adjective) (not comparable)
Almost globular in shape; subglobose; platycephalic: While on vacation, Judy found a beautiful subglobular vase with a flat bottom that would be just right on her dining room table.
verdohemoglobin (s) (noun), verdohemoglobins (pl)
A protein which is formed from the breakdown of hemoglobin (a protein that carries oxygen in the blood): Verdohemoglobin is a precursor to the bile pigment biliverdin (a green pigment found in bile which is formed during haem catabolism).
