Hb Manitoba alpha102(G9)Ser->Arg
CONTACT Central cavity
HEMATOLOGY Normal in the heterozygote
ELECTROPHORESIS Hb X moves slightly anodal to Hb A on starch gel at alkaline pH; Hb X moves as Hb S on citrate agar at acidic pH
CHROMATOGRAPHY Hb X and Hb A can be separated by both cation and anion exchange chromatography
STRUCTURE STUDIES Tryptic digestion; separation of peptides by fingerprinting and cation exchange chromatography; amino acid analysis
DNA ANALYSES An AGC->CGC mutation was found in codon 102 of the alpha2 gene; an AGC->AGA mutation was also found in codon 102 of the alpha1 gene (Ref. 4)
STABILITY Slightly unstable; decreased dissociation; forms hybrids
OCCURRENCE Found in a few British, German-Irish, and Italian families
OTHER INFORMATION Quantity in the heterozygote: 19% alpha2 mutant; 24% alpha1 mutant
