Hb Mozhaisk beta92(F8)His->Arg
CONTACT Heme contact; proximal histidine
HEMATOLOGY Moderately severe hemolytic anemia and reticulocytosis in the heterozygote; Heinz bodies
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X and Hb A separate at alkaline pH; Hb X moves slower than Hb A; excellent separation by IEF
CHROMATOGRAPHY No separations reported except by DEAE-cellulose chromatography
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of betaX chain; separation of peptides by reversed phase HPLC or by fingerprinting; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation CAC->CGC at codon 92
FUNCTION STUDIES Slightly increased oxygen affinity; no cooperativity; increased 2,3-DPG content
OCCURRENCE Found in a 9-year-old Russian male and in a young South African male of mixed ethnic origin, and in his brother and father
OTHER INFORMATION Quantity in the heterozygote 25-30% based on stability
