Hb F-Texas-I Agamma5(A2)Glu->Lys
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb FX moves slower than Hb C at alkaline pH
IEF About the same
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb FX can be isolated by cation and anion exchange HPLC
CHAIN SEPARATION No data reported
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of Hb FX; separation of peptides by fingerprinting; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation GAG->AAG at codon 5
NOTES Found in several Black babies; quantity in heterozygotes ~12%; the gamma-Texas-I chain is considerably acetylated (three time more than the normal gamma chain)
