Hb Hofu beta126(H4)Val->Glu
CONTACT External
HEMATOLOGY Normal or mild anemia in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X and Hb A separate at alkaline pH; Hb X moves faster than Hb A
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X was isolated by DEAE-cellulose or DEAE-Sephadex chromatography; partial separation by cation exchange HPLC; the betaX and betaA chains separate by reversed phase HPLC (elution order: betaX, betaA, alpha)
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of AE-betaX chain; separation of peptides by fingerprinting or cation exchange chromatography; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSES A GTG->GAG mutation at codon 126 (Ref. 5)
STABILITY Mildly unstable
OCCURRENCE Found in Japanese, Indian, Black, and Spanish families
OTHER INFORMATION Quantity in the heterozygote 28-31%; found in combination with Hb S and with betao-thal
