Hb A2-Sphakia delta2(NA2)His->Arg
CONTACT 2,3-DPG binding site
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X moves slower than Hb A2 but faster than Hb B2 (see delta16) at alkaline pH
IEF Not reported
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X was isolated by DEAE-Sephadex chromatography; Hb X elutes ahead of Hb A2
STRUCTURE ANALYSIS Tryptic digestion of AE-deltaX chain; peptides separated by chromatography; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSIS Not reported; presumed mutation CAC->CGC at codon 2
NOTES Found in families on Crete and in Canada (Indians)
