Hb J-Buda alpha61(E10)Lys->Asn
CONTACT External
HEMATOLOGY Normal in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X and Hb A separate at alkaline pH; Hb X moves to the position of Hb J on starch gel
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X was isolated on a DEAE-Sephadex column
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion; separation of peptides by cation exchange chromatography; glycinamidation; CNBr; chymotrypsin; thermolysin; sequencing
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation AAG->AAC or AAT; alpha2 or alpha1
STABILITY Not reported
OCCURRENCE Found in a large Hungarian family
OTHER INFORMATION Found in combination with Hb G-Pest [alpha74(EF3)Asp->Asn] and Hb A in three individuals (causes erythrocytosis); this family study was the first to offer convincing evidence for the presence of duplicated alpha-globin genes in humans
