CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X and Hb A can be separated by both cation and anion exchange chromatography
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of AE-betaX chain; separation of peptides by fingerprinting or by cation exchange chromatography; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation CAC->CGC at codon 117
OCCURRENCE Found in several Black families
