Deep-diving whales could hold answer for synthetic bloodDeep-diving whales could hold answer for synthetic blood
Study shows how marine mammals pack muscle cells with oxygen-holding protein
The ultra-stable properties of the proteins that allow deep-diving whales to remain active while holding their breath for up to two hours could help Rice biochemist John Olson and his colleagues finish a 20-year quest to create lifesaving synthetic blood for human trauma patients.  (September 25, 2015)
