Hb Kurosaki alpha7(A5)Lys->Glu
CONTACT External
HEMATOLOGY Normal in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS IEF demonstrated the presence of Hb X as a fast-moving band that focused anodally to Hb A (almost at the position of Hb H)
CHROMATOGRAPHY Fast-eluting Hb by cation exchange HPLC; Hb X and Hb A were also separated on a DEAE-5PW HPLC column
STRUCTURE STUDIES The alpha chain was isolated by CM-cellulose 8 M-urea-phosphate chromatography; tryptic peptides were separated by reversed phase HPLC; an alphaT-1,2 peptide was identified (alphaT-1 and alphaT-2 were absent) by amino acid analysis; sequence analysis
DNA ANALYSES Not reported; presumed mutation AAG->GAG; alpha2 or alpha1
OCCURRENCE Found in a 70-year-old diabetic Japanese female
OTHER INFORMATION Quantity in the heterozygote 17.7%
