Hb York beta146(HC3)His->Pro
CONTACT External; alpha2beta1 contact
HEMATOLOGY Erythrocytosis in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS No separation of Hb X and Hb A at alkaline pH; Hb X moves more rapidly to the cathode than Hb A at acidic pH
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X was isolated on a CM-cellulose column
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of betaX chain; separation of peptides by cation exchange chromatography; amino acid analysis; thermolysin, carboxypeptidase A
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation CAC->CCC at codon 146
FUNCTION STUDIES Increased oxygen affinity; decreased Bohr effect, and cooperativity
OCCURRENCE Found in a 22-year-old Caucasian female
OTHER INFORMATION Quantity in the heterozygote 50%
