HEMATOLOGY Normal in the heterozygote; when associated with alpha-thal: hemolytic anemia, hypochromia, microcytosis, target cells, and reticulocytosis
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X moves slower than Hb S on starch gel at alkaline pH
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X was isolated on a DEAE-Sephadex column
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion; separation of peptides by fingerprinting; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation CTG->CGG; alpha2 or alpha1
OCCURRENCE Found in a Caucasian family
