Hb Arlington Park beta6(A3)Glu->Lys;
HEMATOLOGY Normal in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X and Hb A do not separate by standard methodology at both alkaline and acidic pH
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of AE-betaX+betaA chains; separation of peptides by cation exchange chromatography; sequencing
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutations GAG->AAG and AAG->GAG at codons 6 and 95
STABILITY Not reported
OCCURRENCE Observed in a 47-year-old Black male suffering from hypertension who died due to a cerebro-vascular accident a few days after admission to hospital; there are no living blood relatives
OTHER INFORMATION Accidentally observed when sample was used as a control for peptide mapping; the beta6 Glu->Lys mutation is characteristic for Hb C and beta95 Lys->Glu for Hb N-Baltimore
