Figure S1 (a) shows that R2-Hb demonstrates different intrinsic dynamics with T-HB, and Figure S1 (b) detects that the second ANM mode of T-Hb contribute the most for the conformational change from T-state to R2 state. Figure S1 (c) shows that R2-Hb has similar intrinsic dynamics with R-Hb. Distribution of mean-square fluctuations shown in Figure S1 (d) further found that R2-Hb has similar intrinsic flexibilities with R-Hb, but different with T-Hb.
