Hb Fukuyama beta77(EF1)His->Tyr
CONTACT External
HEMATOLOGY Normal in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X and Hb A separate by IEF; Hb X focuses with Hb A1c
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X and Hb A separate by cation exchange HPLC; Hb X elutes ahead of Hb A together with Hb A1c; the betaX and betaA chains separate by CM-cellulose chromatography
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of betaX chain; separation of peptides by reversed phase HPLC; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSES A CAC->TAC mutation at codon 77 (Ref. 4)
STABILITY Slightly abnormal
OCCURRENCE Found in a 64-year-old Japanese male, a Caucasian family in the United States; an Indonesian woman, and two unrelated Swedish women
OTHER INFORMATION Quantity in the heterozygote 31-34% (a subject with an alpha-thal-1 heterozygosity) (Ref. 3); heterozygote with four alpha-globin genes has 47% Hb X
