Hemoglobin is the respiratory pigment present in blood.
It has a great affinity for oxygen. Hence it takes up oxygen from the air in lungs and carries it to the tissues which are deficient in oxygen, before releasing it. Some amount of carbon dioxide is also transported by this pigment. Thus transport of respiratory gases is the main function of hemoglobin.
