Neuroglobin binds molecular oxygen (O2) in neurons of the central nervous system and peripheral nervous system (Burmester et al. 2000, Dewilde et al. 2001, Trent et al. 2001, Orlowski and Nowak 2008, Bocahut et al. 2009, Watanabe et al. 2012, Hundahl et al. 2013). An elongated cavity in the protein may facilitate the diffusion of oxygen to the heme (Pesce et al. 2003).
