2 Answer

  • A.) Collagen is a structural protein and hemoglobin is a protein involved in the transport of oxygen.
  • The correct statement is A. Option A is true.  

    Structural protein like collagen provides a structural framework and thus support to different cell structures. Hemoglobin is a protein found in red blood cells. It is made up of heme (iron) and globin(globular protein). Heme combines with oxygen to form oxyhemoglobin and transports oxygen to tissues.
