CONTACT Internal
HEMATOLOGY Hemolytic anemia in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X and Hb A can be separated at alkaline pH (migrates between Hb S and Hb A) and at acid pH (moves approximately with Hb S)
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X was isolated by DEAE-Sephadex chromatography
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of AE-betaX chain; separation of peptides by cation exchange chromatography; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation GGC->CGC at codon 107
FUNCTION STUDIES Decreased oxygen affinity and cooperativity; increased Bohr effect
OCCURRENCE Found in two members of a Caucasian family
OTHER INFORMATION Quantity in the heterozygote 30%
