Myoglobin, an intracellular haemoprotein expressed in the heart and oxidative skeletal myofibres of vertebrates, binds molecular oxygen and may facilitate oxygen transport from erythrocytes to mitochondria, thereby maintaining cellular respiration during periods of high physiological demand (1). Myoglobin may serve a variety of functions in muscular oxygen supply, such as oxygen storage, facilitated O(2) diffusion, and myoglobin-mediated oxidative phosphorylation. Disruption of myoglobin results in the activation of multiple compensatory mechanisms that steepen the pO(2) gradient and reduce the diffusion path length for O(2) between capillary and the mitochondria (2).
