The binding between heme and hemopexin allows heme to remain soluble in an aqueous environment, and the heme-hemopexin is removed by interaction with the widely expressed LDL receptor-related protein/ CD91 receptor (1,2).
So, researchers at the University of Wisconsin set out to demonstrate a possible role for hemopexin in inhibiting hemin- or hemoglobin-induced lipid oxidation in a model system of washed fish muscle.

After injection of LPS, the level of the plasma acute phase proteins, including hemopexin and a1-acid glycoprotein, increase at 12 h, reach the highest level at 24 h and decline thereafter (Kevyn et al.
The hemopexin domain (20 kDa), from the 62 kDa domain, disrupts integrin signaling.
We wanted to study the liver-specific N-glycan changes, so we selected hemopexin (Hpx), a 60-kDa heme-binding glycoprotein, because of several interesting characteristics.

From these studies, fucosylated hemopexin emerged as a potential biomarker with a specificity and sensitivity of 92% (82).
The most abundant proteins present in the serum glycoprotein fraction included [alpha]-2-macroglobulin, serotransferrin, haptoglobin, hemopexin, [[alpha].
