CONTACT External
HEMATOLOGY Mild anemia with reticulocytosis
ELECTROPHORESIS No separation with standard methodology; Hb X and Hb A focus closely together in IEF
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X and Hb A separate incompletely by cation exchange HPLC; the betaX and betaA chains readily separate by reversed phase HPLC; betaX elutes ahead of betaA
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion; separation of peptides by reversed phase HPLC; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation CTG->CCG at codon 48
STABILITY Mildly unstable
OCCURRENCE Found in a Tunisian boy but not in his parents
