Hb Chongqing alpha2(NA2)Leu->Arg
CONTACT External
HEMATOLOGY Normal in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS Starch gel and cellulose acetate electrophoresis at alkaline pH showed a slowly-moving band corresponding to Hb G
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X can be separated from Hb A by cation and anion exchange chromatography
STRUCTURE STUDIES Hb X was identified by fingerprinting; peptide alphaT-1 had disappeared and two new peptide spots were observed because of the Leu->Arg substitution at position 2 of the alpha chain
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation CTG->CGG; alpha2 or alpha1
FUNCTIONAL STUDIES Increased oxygen affinity
OCCURRENCE In a Chinese family
OTHER INFORMATION About 9% in heterozygotes
