Use "globin" in a sentence
"The normal expression of human beta globin is highly dependent upon the stability of its encoding mRNA."
"If no or badly functioning beta-globin is made, the life-span of the red blood cells is shortened resulting in anemia."
"Had we used other substrates, such as globin, the protein we used in our initial experiments, the E3 adsorbed to the column would have probably escaped our attention, as E3s do not typically adsorb to ubiquitin."
