Carbaminohaemoglobin, is a molecule of haemoglobin which binds to a CO2 molecule reversibly. Amide linkages form between the terminal amino groups found on the constituent polypeptide chains which form the structure of haemoglobin. This allows one molecule of haemoglobin to transport 4 molecules of CO2[1].
