Hb Tours beta87(F3)Thr->0
HEMATOLOGY Mild hemolytic anemia in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X moves like Hb S at alkaline pH
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X was isolated on a cation exchange (Bio-Rex 70) column
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion of AE-betaX chain; separation of peptides by cation exchange chromatography; amino acid analysis; sequencing
DNA ANALYSES Not reported
FUNCTION STUDIES Increased oxygen affinity; the unstable Hb readily loses heme
OCCURRENCE Found in a 40-year-old French male
OTHER INFORMATION Quantity in the heterozygote about 25%
