Hb Abruzzo beta143(H21)His->Arg
CONTACT External; central cavity; 2,3-DPG binding site
HEMATOLOGY Erythrocytosis in the heterozygote (PCV 0.45-0.69 l/l)
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X and Hb A can be separated at alkaline pH; it moves between Hb F and Hb S
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X and Hb A can be separated by cation and anion exchange chromatography
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of betaX chain; separation of peptides by fingerprinting or cation exchange chromatography; amino acid analysis; sequencing
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation CAC->CGC at codon 143
FUNCTION STUDIES Increased oxygen affinity; normal Bohr effect; normal cooperativity in the presence of phosphates; cooperativity is reduced in the absence of phosphates
STABILITY Normal (?)
OCCURRENCE Found in a few Italian families
OTHER INFORMATION Found in combination with beta-thal
