Myoglobin is a pigment found in muscle cells, that aids hemoglobin in providing oxygen  for aerobic metabolism.
  • Higher myoglobin concentrations within a muscle cell (e.g. as found in Type I fibers), allows for more oxygen to be carried, which enhances the cells ability to fuel aerobic metabolism.
