Hemopexin binds either ferriheme b or ferroheme b, however the stability of the complex containing ferriheme b is greater than the stability of the complex containing ferroheme b (Morgan 1976, Pasternack et al. 1983, Solar et al. 1989, Miller and Shaklai 1999, Rosell et al. 2005, Mauk and Mauk 2010).
