Dear student
The mammalian hemoglobin molecule can bind (carry) up to four oxygen molecules.
The hemoglobin molecule has four binding sites for oxygen molecules: the iron atoms in the four heme groups. Thus, each Hb tetramer can bind four oxygen molecules.

ANSWER

Hemoglobin (Hb), which is contained in red blood cells, serves as the oxygen carrier in the blood.  Each heme group contains an iron atom, and this is responsible for the binding of oxygen. The mammalian hemoglobin molecule can bind (carry) up to four oxygen molecules.
