A compound formed by the combination of hemoglobin and oxygen. It is a complex in which the oxygen is bound directly to the iron without causing a change from the ferrous to the ferric state.
Minor hemoglobin components of human erythrocytes designated A1a, A1b, and A1c. Hemoglobin A1c is most important since its sugar moiety is glucose covalently bound to the terminal amino acid of the beta chain. Since normal glycohemoglobin concentrations exclude marked blood glucose fluctuations over the preceding three to four weeks, the concentration of glycosylated hemoglobin A is a more reliable index of the blood sugar average over a long period of time.

A new alkali-resistant hemoglobin alpha2J Oxford gammaF2 in a Sicilian baby girl with homozygous beta0 thalassemia. (1/584)

A 10-mo-old baby girl with homozygous beta0 thalassemia and alphaJOxford, presenting the clinical picture of homozygous beta thalassemia is described. Hemoglobin electrophoresis showed three bands: the first two with the mobilities of hemoglobin Hb A2 (1%) and Hb F (69%), respectively, the third migrating a little faster than Hb A (30%). About 30% of her alpha chains were J Oxford which, bound to her gamma chains, produced a new alkali-resistant hemoglobin, alpha2 J Oxford gamma F2, which has not been described previously. Hemoglobin synthesis in vitro showed the absence of beta chain synthesis and an alpha/non-alpha ratio of 2. The patient's father was heterozygous for both the Hb J Oxford and beta0 thalassemia genes, the mother a carrier of beta0 thalassemia; four other relatives were carriers of Hb J Oxford, and one was a carrier of beta thalassemia.  (+info)

Hemoglobin Providence. A human hemoglobin variant occurring in two forms in vivo. (2/584)

Hemoglobin Providence Asn and Hemoglobin Providence Asp are two abnormal hemoglobins which apparently arise from a single genetic change that substitutes asparagine for lysine at position 82 (EF6) in the beta chain of human hemoglobin. The second form appears to be thr result of a partial in vivo deamidation of the asparagine situated at position beta 82. Cellulose acetate and citrate agar electrophoresis of hemolysates from patients with this abnormality shows three bands. Globin chain electrophoresis at acid and alkaline pH shows three beta chains. These three chains correspond to the normal beta A chain and two abnormal beta chains. Sequence analysis indicates that the two abnormal chains differ from beta A at only position beta 82. In the two abnormal chains, the residue which is normally lysine is substituted either by asparagine or by aspartic acid. These substitutions are notable because beta 82 lysine is one of the residues involved in 2,3-diphosphoglycerate binding. Additionally, beta 82 lysine is typically invariant in hemoglobin beta chain sequences. Sequence data on the two forms of Hemoglobin Providence are given in this paper. The functional properties of these two forms are described in the next paper.  (+info)

Reactivity of cyanate with valine-1 (alpha) of hemoglobin. A probe of conformational change and anion binding. (3/584)

The 3-fold increase in the carbamylation rate of Val-1 (alpha) of hemoglobin upon deoxygenation described earlier is now shown to be a sensitive probe of conformational change. Thus, whereas this residue in methemoglobin A is carbamylated at the same rate as in liganded hemoglobin, upon addition of inositol hexaphosphate its carbamylation rate is enhanced 30% as much as the total change in the rate between the CO and deoxy states. For CO-hemoglobin Kansas in the presence of the organic phosphate, the relative increase in the carbamylation rate of this residue is about 50%. These results indicate that methemoglobin A and hemoglobin Kansas in the presence of inositol hexaphosphate do not assume a conformation identical with deoxyhemoglobin but rather form either a mixture of R and T states or an intermediate conformation in the region around Val-1 (alpha). Studies on the mechanism for the rate enhancement in deoxyhemoglobin suggest that the cyanate anion binds to groups in the vicinity of Val-1 (alpha) prior to proton transfer and carbamylation of this NH2-terminal residue. Thus, specific removal with carboxypeptidase B of Arg-141 (alpha), which is close to Val-1 (alpha) in deoxyhemoglobin, abolishes the enhancement in carbamylation. Chloride, which has the same valency as cyanate, is a better competitive inhibitor of the carbamylation of deoxyhemoglobin (Ki = 50 mM) compared with liganded hemoglobin. Nitrate and iodide are also effective inhibitors of the carbamylation of Val-1 (alpha) of deoxyhemoglobin (Ki = 35 mM); inorganic phosphate, sulfate, and fluoride are poor competitive inhibitors. The change in pKa of Val-1 (alpha) upon deoxygenation may be due to its differential interaction with chloride.  (+info)

Haemoglobin LeporeBoston in a Turkish family. (4/584)

This is the first reported instance of the occurrence of haemoglobin Lepore in Turkey.  (+info)

The structural and functional analysis of the hemoglobin D component from chicken. (5/584)

Oxygen binding by chicken blood shows enhanced cooperativity at high levels of oxygen saturation. This implies that deoxy hemoglobin tetramers self-associate. The crystal structure of an R-state form of chicken hemoglobin D has been solved to 2.3-A resolution using molecular replacement phases derived from human oxyhemoglobin. The model consists of an alpha2 beta2 tetramer in the asymmetric unit and has been refined to a R-factor of 0.222 (R-free = 0.257) for 29,702 reflections between 10.0- and 2.3-A resolution. Chicken Hb D differs most from human oxyhemoglobin in the AB and GH corners of the alpha subunits and the EF corner of the beta subunits. Reanalysis of published oxygen binding data for chicken Hbs shows that both chicken Hb A and Hb D possess enhanced cooperativity in vitro when inositol hexaphosphate is present. The electrostatic surface potential for a calculated model of chicken deoxy-Hb D tetramers shows a pronounced hydrophobic patch that involves parts of the D and E helices of the beta subunits.

Altered ligand rebinding kinetics due to distal-side effects in hemoglobin chico (Lysbeta66(E10) --> thr). (6/584)

Hb Chico is an unusual human hemoglobin variant that has lowered oxygen affinity, but unaltered cooperativity and anion sensitivity. Previous studies showed these features to be associated with distal-side heme pocket alterations that confer increased structural rigidity on the molecule and that increase water content in the beta-chain heme pocket. We report here that the extent of nanosecond geminate rebinding of oxygen to the variant and its isolated beta-chains is appreciably decreased. Structural alterations in this variant decrease its oxygen recombination rates without significantly altering rates of migration out of the heme pocket. Data analysis indicates that one or more barriers that impede rebinding of oxygen from docking sites in the heme pocket are increased, with less consequence for CO rebinding. Resonance Raman spectra show no significant alterations in spectral regions sensitive to interactions between the heme iron and the proximal histidine residue, confirming that the functional differences in the variant are due to distal-side heme pocket alterations. These effects are discussed in the context of a schematic representation of heme pocket wells and barriers that could aid the design of novel hemoglobins with altered ligand affinity without loss of the normal allosteric responses that facilitate unloading of oxygen to respiring tissues.  (+info)

Haemoglobin E Saskatoon beta 22 Glu replaced by Lys in the Shetland Islands. (7/584)

A survey of blood samples from the inhabitants of the Shetland Islands has revealed the presence of a variant haemoglobin in 1 individual out of the 345 tested. The rariant haemoglobin accounted for 46% of the total haemoglobin. Tryptic digestion and amino acid analysis indicated that the variant haemoglobin was caused by the substitution of a glutamic acid residue at position 22 in the beta chain by a lysine residue. This is the same amino acid substituion as found in haemoglobin E Saskatoon.  (+info)

Cyanide binding to Lucina pectinata hemoglobin I and to sperm whale myoglobin: an x-ray crystallographic study. (8/584)

The x-ray crystal structures of the cyanide derivative of Lucina pectinata monomeric hemoglobin I (L. pectinata HbI) and sperm whale (Physeter catodon) myoglobin (Mb), generally taken as reference models for monomeric hemoproteins carrying hydrogen sulfide and oxygen, respectively, have been determined at 1.9 A (R-factor = 0. 184), and 1.8 A (R-factor = 0.181) resolution, respectively, at room temperature (lambda = 1.542 A). Moreover, the x-ray crystal structure of the L. pectinata HbI:cyanide derivative has been studied at 1.4-A resolution (R-factor = 0.118) and 100 K (on a synchrotron source lambda = 0.998 A). At room temperature, the cyanide ligand is roughly parallel to the heme plane of L. pectinata HbI, being located approximately 2.5 A from the iron atom. On the other hand, the crystal structure of the L. pectinata HbI:cyanide derivative at 100 K shows that the diatomic ligand is coordinated to the iron atom in an orientation almost perpendicular to the heme (the Fe-C distance being 1.95 A), adopting a coordination geometry strictly reminescent of that observed in sperm whale Mb, at room temperature. The unusual cyanide distal site orientation observed in L. pectinata HbI, at room temperature, may reflect reduction of the heme Fe(III) atom induced by free radical species during x-ray data collection using Cu Kalpha radiation.  (+info)

Hemoglobin Constant Spring is a variant of Hemoglobin in which a mutation in the alpha globin gene produces an alpha globin chain that is abnormally long. It is the most common nondeletional alpha-thalassemia mutation associated with hemoglobin H disease. The quantity of hemoglobin in the cells is low because the messenger RNA is unstable and some is degraded prior to protein synthesis. Another reason is that the Constant Spring alpha chain protein is itself unstable. The result is a thalassemic phenotype. Hemoglobin Constant Spring is renamed after Constant Spring district in Jamaica. Hemoglobin variants Hemoglobinopathy Thalassemia What is Thalassemia?

The isolated minor haemoglobin fractions (haemoglobin D) of ostrich, chicken and duck haemoglobin, which constitute about 30% of total intracellular haemoglobin, form crystalline aggregates upon deoxygenation at physiological temperature, ionic strength and pH and at haemoglobin concentrations even well below those present in the red cell. The aggregation is reversed by oxygenation, and can be inhibited by addition of organic phosphates or the corresponding major haemoglobin fraction in a stoichiometric ratio of 1:1. Embryonic haemoglobin from chicken has similar characteristics with respect to its solubility. The results indicate close functional homology of alpha D and embryonic pi-chains as well as a novel role for organic phosphates in the regulation of haemoglobin function. ...
TY - JOUR. T1 - Chromatofocusing and isoelectric focusing in immobilized pH gradients compared for characterization of human hemoglobin variants. AU - Paleari, R.. AU - Arcelloni, C.. AU - Paroni, R.. AU - Fermo, I.. AU - Mosca, A.. PY - 1989. Y1 - 1989. N2 - We compared the performance of two highly resolving methods, chromatofocusing (CRF) and isoelectric focusing in immobilized pH gradients (IPGF), for the separation of human hemoglobin variants. Lysates containing 13 different hemoglobins, including variants of clinical and geographical importance, and four electrophoretically silent variants (Hb Brockton, Hb Cheverly, Hb Koln, and Hb Waco) were analyzed. Both techniques showed a good intrarun precision (CV = 0.87% for CRF, 0.27% for IPGF) and high and similar resolving power (0.010 pH units, with the pH gradients used in this work). The use of an ultranarrow IPGF range (pH 7.15-7.35; pH gradient = 0.019 pH/cm) allowed the resolution between Hb Brockton, Hb Koln, and Hb A. In some cases ...

The role of the amino acid at position α38 in haemoglobin has been probed using site-directed mutagenesis. When the Thr residue at position α38 (which is totally conserved in all mammals) is changed to a Gln, the equilibrium properties of the protein are significantly altered. Equilibrium and kinetic data show that the R-state properties of the protein are essentially unaffected by the mutation whilst the allosteric equilibrium and T-state properties are changed. Mutation of the naturally occurring Gln38 of the human embryonic haemoglobin ζ-chain (the only known non-Thr containing globin) to a Thr residue shows the converse change in properties produced by the adult mutation, although in this case the situation is complicated by significant chain heterogeneity in the T state. An extension of the two-state model of co-operativity is presented to describe quantitatively the equilibrium ligand binding in the presence of T-state chain heterogeneity. A molecular model is described in which the ...
The manual of laboratory methodology was developed to provide basic information for testing programs for two genetic characteristics, variant hemoglobins and deficiency of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6Pd). The first section describes the approach to be used for voluntary programs primarily concerned with genetic counseling. In these programs, individual patients will generally request medical advice on the mode of inheritance of abnormal hemoglobins and the consequence of their hemoglobin phenotype on possible children. It must be emphasized that these programs are strictly voluntary and require electrophoresis as the primary laboratory method. The second section deals with testing of all entering military personnel for the purposes of industrial health safety. In this program, all persons entering on active duty are tested by automated techniques for the presence of hemoglobin S and/or deficiency of erythrocyte G6PD. (Modified author abstract)*Hemoglobin

Genetically engineered mouse models carrying HCM causing β-MHC mutations in the mouse α-MHC gene closely resemble the cardiac pathology of the human disease.14,15,18,19 Here, we used such mice in an inbred genetic background to compare the phenotypic consequences of 3 different mutations. Similar to affected humans, RC/+ and RW/+ mice demonstrated slow progression of left ventricular hypertrophy during adolescence, interstitial fibrosis, and myofiber disarray at intact contractile function (Figure 2). Animals died early on when homozygous (Figure 4). Although heterozygous or homozygous VM hearts were indistinguishable from wt hearts (Figures 2 and 3C and 3D, Online Figure II, Table), the hypertrophic response could be exacerbated in VM/+ hearts either by cyclosporine treatment or by the combination of VM and RC mutations in a compound heterozygous model (VM/RC). VM/RC mice developed cardiac hypertrophy and interstitial fibrosis to a degree similar to animals after transverse aortic banding ...

Several unstable mutant hemoglobins have alterations which affect areas of the molecule involved in the attachment of heme to globin. Loss of heme from globin has been demonstrated during the denaturation of some of these unstable mutants. The importance of heme ligands for the stability of hemoglobin was illustrated in the present experiments on the denaturation of several hemoglobins and hemoglobin derivatives by heat, oxidative dyes, and alkali. Heating of normal hemolysates diluted to 4 g of hemoglobin per 100 ml at 50°C for 20 hr in 0.05 M sodium phosphate, pH 7.4, caused precipitation of 23-54% of the hemoglobin. Dialysis against water or dilution of the sample decreased denaturation to 12-20%. Precipitation was decreased to less than 3.5% by the presence of 0.015 M potassium cyanide. Increasing the ionic strength of the medium increased precipitation. Cyanide prevented the formation of inclusion bodies when red cells containing unstable hemoglobin Philly, β35 tyr → phe, were incubated ...

Inclusion criteria involved age, weight, height, waist size, ethnicity and family history. To improve the sample, the inclusion criteria could have been significantly tightened to contain only those at or over 45 years of age, especially if body mass index (BMI) was equal to or greater than 25 kg/m and/or either treated or untreated sustained blood pressure was greater than 135/80 mm Hg.21 BMI and weight gain are good inclusion criteria - according to Mokdad, they are major risk factors with an unfortunate prolonged delay between them and the onset of diabetes.34 Including socioeconomic status would have been advantageous since Link et al found that it may be more indicative of undiagnosed diabetes than ethnicity.35.

Based on our results, 56.6% of patients with chronic hepatitis C treated with therapies involving the use of BOC or TVR achieved SVR. Multivariate analysis indicated that the factors associated with the achievement of SVR were the absence of cirrhosis, a history of relapse after previous treatment with Peg-IFN and RBV, a platelet count >100,000/mm3 before therapy, and the presence of RVR. Regarding treatment safety, approximately 44.2% of study patients had SAEs. Multivariate analysis indicated that the factors associated with the occurrence of SAEs were the presence of liver cirrhosis, female gender, age >65 years, and abnormal hemoglobin levels or platelet counts before treatment.. Comparison of our results with those observed in other large real-life cohorts involving the use of triple therapy with BOC or TVR suggested the rate of SVR was similar to that observed in previous studies, in which this rate ranged between 44% and 58% 22-24 (Table 5). However, notably, in our sample there was a ...

We report on a 54 years-old male patient from North-Eastern Algeria who combines two hemoglobin variants that are associated with thalassemia-like disorders: Hb Lepore and Knossos (beta 27 Ala----Ser) (1, 2). A beta-thalassemia intermedia picture gradually developed and finally required splenectomy at the age of 53. Total absence of Hb A2 indicated that the beta Knossos gene is most probably flanked with a delta(0)-thalassemia gene. No DNA deletion additional to the Lepore deletion was found. Hb F was elevated (12.3%) with 24% G gamma Hb F. In whole cells, Hb Knossos, representing 70% of total hemoglobin, displayed a decreased affinity for oxygen (P50 = 35 mm Hg), a fact presumably accounting for the relatively good tolerance of the condition.
Diagnosis is confirmed by demonstration of an unstable hemoglobin. This may be done by:. - Isopropanol precipitation test: a simple screening test that involves the incubation of the hemolysate with a 17 percent of isopropanol; hemolysates containing unstable hemoglobin variants form a precipitate, whereas a normal hemolysate remains clear.. - Heat denaturation test: cumbersome and usually not used.. - Heinz body detection: requires the incubation of erythrocytes ...

In vitro incubation under physiological conditions of these erythrocytes for periods of 5-15 hours has been utilized to evaluate effects of various additives on metabolism of the cells. The addition of adenine to the blood stimulates adenine nucleotide biosynthesis and is effective in maintaining levels of adenine nucleotides. An excessive rate of breakdown of adenine nucleotides to hypoxanthine has been shown previously to be a major factor in the inability of these cells to maintain ATP. The addition of azide during in vitro incubation proved detrimental to the metabolism of these ...

UNHB : Unstable hemoglobin disease is rare and may be caused by any 1 of a large number of hemoglobin variants. They are inherited as an autosomal dominant trait. The severity of the disease varies according to the hemoglobin variant; there may be no clinical symptoms or the disease may produce a mild, moderate, or severe hemolytic anemia.   The stained peripheral blood smear shows anisocytosis, poikilocytosis, basophilic stippling, polychromasia and, sometimes, hypochromia. The reticulocyte count may be increased. Splenomegaly and Heinz bodies may also be present.
When WHO has laid down correct Terminology [34 35], we find reputable publications/Guidelines riddled with confusion, most glaringly confusing Sickle Cell Trait with Sickle Cell Disease [36-40], and sometimes describing both Trait and Disease phenotypes in same person - [41] all of which mistakes have been exposed [42-49]. Doyen of Abnormal Haemoglobins Professor Hermann Lehmann FRS wrote to The Times-London [50] that Sickle Cell Traits had run at Olympic Games at Mexico City 7000 ft and won Gold Medals, yet reports of Sickle Cell Traits dying at 4000ft continued, ensuring Insurance Companies made huge profits.

Hemoglobin E trait is caused by a gene defect. This gene defect is passed down from 1 of your parents. It is not a disease. It does not usually cause any health problems. It can cause smaller-than-normal red blood cells. When inherited from both parents, or with other abnormal hemoglobin genes, it can cause anemia and other problems. If you inherited the defect from both parents or from 1 parent and a different abnormal hemoglobin from the other parent, it can cause problems, such as: ...
By introducing an additional H-bond in the alpha(1)beta(2) subunit interface or altering the charge properties of the amino acid residues in the alpha(1)beta(1) subunit interface of the hemoglobin molecule, we have designed and expressed recombinant hemoglobins (rHbs) with low oxygen affinity and high cooperativity. Oxygen-binding measurements of these rHbs under various experimental conditions show interesting properties in response to pH (Bohr effect) and allosteric effectors. Proton nuclear magnetic resonance studies show that these rHbs can switch from the oxy (or CO) quaternary structure (R) to the deoxy quaternary structure (T) without changing their ligation states upon addition of an allosteric effector, inositol hexaphosphate, and/or reduction of the ambient temperature. These results indicate that if we can provide extra stability to the T state of the hemoglobin molecule without perturbing its R state, we can produce hemoglobins with low oxygen affinity and high cooperativity. Some of these
We have used isoelectric focusing to measure the differences between the pI values of various normal and mutant human haemoglobins when completely deoxygenated and when fully liganded with CO. It was assumed that the ΔpI(deox.-ox.) values might correspond quantitatively to the intrinsic alkaline Bohr effect, as most of the anionic cofactors of the haemoglobin molecule are stripped off during the electrophoretic process. In haemoglobins known to exhibit a normal Bohr coefficient (ΔlogP50/ΔpH) in solutions, the ΔpI(deox.-ox.) values are lower the higher their respective pI(ox.) values. This indicates that for any particular haemoglobin the ΔpI(deox.-ox.) value accounts for the difference in surface charges at the pH of its pI value. This was confirmed by measuring, by the direct-titration technique, the difference in pH of deoxy and fully liganded haemoglobin A0 (α2β2) solutions in conditions approximating those of the isoelectric focusing, i.e. at 5°C and very low concentration of KCl. ...

Hemoglobin F (Hb F) is the dominant hemoglobin at birth but is gradually replaced by adult hemoglobin (Hb A) during the year after birth (normal value ≤1% of total hemoglobin after age 2). Increased Hb F levels may continue after the neonatal period and into adulthood for various reasons. Genetic causes include deletional and nondeletional forms of hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin (HPFH) and delta-beta thalassemia mutations. Over 100 mutations have been described in the gamma genes and, if detectable, the protein expression will vary over time according to the overall Hb F expression. Gamma globin mutations can manifest either as a quantitative (gamma thalassemia or nondeletional HPFH) or a qualitative (gamma variant) abnormality. Nondeletional HPFH mutations frequently modulate the expected severity of sickling disorders due to the inhibitory properties of Hb F on sickle formation. Many gamma chain variants are benign, although some, such as unstable, high- and low-oxygen affinity, ... is a resource for leading colon health professionals in New Hyde Park to provide answers to questions asked by New Hyde Park residents.

If using the value of hemoglobin A2 has a key indicator of β-thalassemia, it is crucial to exclude the presence of hemoglobin A2′. This delta chain variant is clinically benign but will be present at equal concentration to hemoglobin A2; to obtain an accurate value of delta chain concentrations, hemoglobins A2 and A2′ must be added together. It can be difficult to visualize hemoglobin A2′ on EP or IEF since the percentage is small and it coelutes with hemoglobin S on HPLC.. Glycated hemoglobin S elutes with hemoglobin A2 on HPLC and may falsely elevate the value of hemoglobin A2, leading to erroneous suspicion of β-thalassemia.. Finally, β-thalassemias may mask the presence of a mutant hemoglobin if the thalassemia completely suppresses expression of the mutant gene. It is important to ascertain the correct disease state, ...
Hemoglobin deficiency can be caused either by a decreased amount of hemoglobin molecules, as in anemia, or by decreased ability of each molecule to bind oxygen at the same partial pressure of oxygen. Hemoglobinopathies (genetic defects resulting in abnormal structure of the hemoglobin molecule)[77] may cause both. In any case, hemoglobin deficiency decreases blood oxygen-carrying capacity. Hemoglobin deficiency is, in general, strictly distinguished from hypoxemia, defined as decreased partial pressure of oxygen in blood,[78][79][80][81] although both are causes of hypoxia (insufficient oxygen supply to tissues). Other common causes of low hemoglobin include loss of blood, nutritional deficiency, bone marrow problems, chemotherapy, kidney failure, or abnormal hemoglobin (such as that of sickle-cell disease). The ability of each hemoglobin molecule to carry oxygen is normally modified by altered blood pH or CO2, causing an altered oxygen-hemoglobin dissociation curve. However, it can also be ...

  • A fetal hemoglobin test (Hgb electrophoresis) measures the level of fetal hemoglobin (Hemoglobin F or HbF) in the blood of infants and children. (
  • Fetal hemoglobin, an alkali-resistant form of hemoglobin, is the major hemoglobin component in the bloodstream of the fetus. (
  • Fetal hemoglobin is one of six types of hemoglobin measured in the clinical laboratory by a method called hemoglobin electrophoresis. (
  • The determination of fetal hemoglobin in the blood of infants and children identifies normal and abnormal levels, defining what percentage of total hemoglobin is made up of fetal hemoglobin. (
  • Knowing this level may help doctors evaluate low concentrations of normal hemoglobin in red blood cells (anemia), as well as higher-than-normal levels of fetal hemoglobin or its hereditary persistence. (
  • Among the six types of hemoglobin, HbA is the normal adult hemoglobin, and HbF is the major fetal hemoglobin. (
  • During fetal development, fetal hemoglobin composes about 90 percent of total hemoglobin. (
  • At birth, the newborn's blood is composed of about 70 percent fetal hemoglobin. (
  • As the infant's bone marrow begins to produce new red cells, fetal hemoglobin begins to decrease rapidly. (
  • In some diseases associated with abnormal hemoglobin production (hemoglobinopathy), fetal hemoglobin may persist in larger amounts. (
  • When this occurs, the increased amounts of fetal hemoglobin raise questions of possible underlying dysfunction or disease. (
  • Persistence of fetal hemoglobin in inherited hemolytic anemias can be associated with less severe disease symptoms. (

  • This report describes a case of abnormally low hemoglobin A1c that was the result of an asymptomatic compound hemoglobinopathy (homozygous hemoglobin S disease and hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin) that had gone previously undiagnosed. (
  • Given the microcytosis noted on the complete blood count (CBC) and elevated rate of hemoglobinopathies in this patient's ethnic group, a hemoglobin electrophoresis was performed and was markedly abnormal: 0% hemoglobin A, 36.3% hemoglobin F, 3.9% hemoglobin A2, and 59.8% hemoglobin S. The interpretation of this electrophoresis was homozygosity of hemoglobin S (sickle-cell disease) in combination with hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin. (
  • A single mutant allele gives rise to an abnormal form of hemoglobin (HbS) instead of HbA. (
  • HbS is an abnormal form of hemoglobin associated with sickle cell anemia . (
  • Carboxyhemoglobin: An abnormal form of hemoglobin that has attached to carbon monoxide instead of oxygen or carbon dioxide. (
  • Sulfhemoglobin: A rare abnormal form of hemoglobin that can't carry oxygen. (
  • As hemoglobin and glucose are together in the red blood cell, the glucose gradually binds to the A1c form of hemoglobin in a process called glycosylation. (
  • Another form of hemoglobin that cannot transport oxygen is methemoglobin , in which the iron atom is oxidized to the +3 oxidation state. (
  • There are many types of altered hemoglobin¸ but people with SCD or SCT make a form of hemoglobin which is abnormal and it is called hemoglobin S or sickle hemoglobin. (
  • It leads to an abnormal form of hemoglobin that may cause mild anemia. (
  • Glycohemoglobin (hemoglobin A1c) is a form of hemoglobin that is bound to glucose. (
  • There is more than one hemoglobin gene: in humans, hemoglobin A (the main form of hemoglobin present) is coded for by the genes, HBA1, HBA2, and HBB. (
  • In thalassemia the hemoglobin is of abnormal form. (

  • Doctors may order the test to help diagnose conditions related to abnormal hemoglobin production, such as sickle cell disease or thalassemia . (
  • A Mean Corpuscular Volume (MCV) should be sent as part of the CBC as abnormalities can identify the presence of abnormal hemoglobin such as beta thalassemia trait. (
  • Hemoglobin E/thalassemia. (
  • This means you have 1 hemoglobin gene from 1 parent, and a beta-thalassemia gene from the other parent. (
  • Those with hemoglobin E trait plus a second abnormal hemoglobin gene (as described above), may have thalassemia, or anemia-like symptoms. (

  • Mass spectrometry, a newer analytical technology, may be used to identify highly unstable hemoglobins that may manifest clinically as hemolytic anemia or thalassemia. (
  • Beta thalassemia affects the production of hemoglobin. (
  • Beta thalassemia is caused by a defect of the gene that controls hemoglobin production. (
  • Alpha thalassemia intermedia, or hemoglobin H disease, causes hemolytic anemia. (
  • Alpha thalassemia major with hemoglobin Bart's usually results in fatal hydrops fetalis. (
  • Persons with thalassemia should be referred for preconception genetic counseling, and persons with alpha thalassemia trait should consider chorionic villus sampling to diagnose infants with hemoglobin Bart's, which increases the risk of toxemia and postpartum bleeding. (
  • Persons with beta thalassemia major require periodic lifelong blood transfusions to maintain hemoglobin levels higher than 9.5 g per dL (95 g per L) and sustain normal growth. (
  • Abnormal hemoglobin levels may be a sign of anemia, sickle cell anemia , thalassemia , or other blood disorders. (
  • Abnormal MCV levels may be a sign of anemia or thalassemia. (
  • Other, less common, abnormal Hb molecules cause other types of anemia . (
  • Since malaria infects red blood cells , these genetic changes are most commonly alterations to molecules essential for red blood cell function (and therefore parasite survival), such as hemoglobin or other cellular proteins or enzymes of red blood cells. (
  • Urea is proposed to act reversibly by interfering with the hydrophobic bonding of hemoglobin molecules, (Murayama, 1971), while cyanate is reported to act irreversibly through the carbamyl ation of the amino terminal valines, (Cerami and Manning, 1971). (
  • Of the several abnormal of hemoglobin molecules, there are three variants, viz. (
  • Each haemoglobin molecule can combine with four oxygen molecules, but with no more. (
  • A study of sickle cell disease (SCD) at the molecular level found abnormal hemoglobin molecules assemble much faster and less efficiently than previously thought - findings that could lead to the development of new treatments. (
  • Based on their calculations, the researchers believe a compound would only need to bind to approximately 5% of the total abnormal hemoglobin molecules in circulation to be effective in blocking the assembly of sickle hemoglobin fibers. (
  • Each hemoglobin protein can carry four molecules of oxygen, which are delivered throughout the body by red blood cells. (
  • The mammalian hemoglobin molecule can bind (carry) up to four oxygen molecules. (
  • Haemoglobin and haemoglobin-like molecules are also found in many invertebrates, fungi, and plants. (
  • Hemoglobin consists of protein subunits (the "globin" molecules), and these proteins, in turn, are folded chains of a large number of different amino acids called polypeptides . (

  • In many states, a hemoglobin electrophoresis is performed as part of a series of newborn screening blood tests, primarily so that kids with sickle cell anemia can be diagnosed, monitored, and treated early to prevent potentially life-threatening complications. (
  • It then turns to functional abnormalities of whole blood in sickle cell anemia, inhibition of sickle hemoglobin gelation by amino acids and peptides, and intermolecular interactions in crystals of human deoxy hemoglobins A, C, F, and S. The chapters that follow focus on glycosylation of human hemoglobin, the phase transitions of sickle-cell hemoglobin, conformational effects of the HbS mutation, and mechanisms for hemoglobin oxidation. (
  • Anemia means there is less hemoglobin in the RBCs than normal. (
  • Under homozygous condition (HbC/HbC) there can be a mild to moderate enlargement of the spleen, splenomegaly, as well as hemolytic anemia (which is the form of anemia due to abnormal breakdown of red blood cells prematurely) and sometimes jaundice. (
  • Too much hemoglobin C can reduce the number and size of red blood cells in the body, which is the cause of mild anemia. (
  • In those who are heterozygous for the mutation, about 28-44% of total hemoglobin (Hb) is HbC, and no anemia develops. (
  • Low hemoglobin levels usually indicate that a person has anemia. (
  • This form of anemia occurs when a person does not have enough iron in their body, and it cannot make the hemoglobin it needs. (
  • Complete blood count (CBC) - this test screens for anemia, a condition that occurs when not enough oxygen is delivered to the cells of the body due to the presence of abnormal hemoglobin. (
  • Inflammation and duration of anemia were the major predictors of hemoglobin variability. (
  • When inherited from both parents, or with other abnormal hemoglobin genes, it can cause anemia and other problems. (

(
  • Defects in hemoglobin production may be either genetic in origin (for example, sickle cell anemia) or acquired. (
  • Anemia is a general term referring to a shortage of red blood cells or a reduction in hemoglobin. (
  • If anemia is suspected, a simple blood test can be taken to detect a shortage of red blood cells or hemoglobin. (
  • Any adult who has a hemoglobin content of less than 12 grams/100ml blood in women, and less than 13.5 grams/100 ml in men, is diagnosed as having anemia. (
  • Iron deficiency anemia is caused by a shortage of the mineral iron, which is necessary to produce hemoglobin. (
  • Anemia can cause abnormal MCH readings on blood tests. (
  • Pregnancy , blood loss, and weight loss surgery can all cause a drop in your iron levels and lead to iron-deficiency anemia or low hemoglobin and MCH levels. (
  • The physiological effect of anemia is a function of: (1) the interval over which the anemia develops, and (2) the overall hemoglobin level. (
  • Anemia is caused by an abnormal drop in either red blood cells or hemoglobin (the main constituent of red blood cells). (

  • Researchers have identified more than 1,500 structurally abnormal hemoglobins in human patients, some of which cause debilitating diseases, including sickle cell disease, which afflicts millions of people throughout the world. (
  • Hemoglobin S is responsible for most types of sickle cell disease, a condition in which the red blood cells have a crescent or sickle shape that causes them to break down too quickly and clog small blood vessels. (
  • Haemolysis and abnormal haemorheology in sickle cell anaemia. (
  • Although pulmonary hypertension, leg ulcers, priapism, stroke and glomerulopathy in sickle cell anaemia (SCA) result from the adverse effects of chronic haemolysis on vascular function (haemolytic phenotype), osteonecrosis, acute chest syndrome and painful vaso-occlusive crises are caused by abnormal vascular cell adhesion and increased blood viscosity (viscosity-vaso-occlusion phenotype). (

  • In order to test the robustness of the approach, we have applied the approach to unknown hemoglobin variants. (
  • Hemoglobinopathies are classified into two types: thalassemias, which are characterized by a reduction in the synthesis of the globin chains, and structural hemoglobin variants which are caused by a point mutation in the globin gene typically leading to a single amino acid substitution in the globin chain. (
  • Frequent haemoglobin variants: Hb C, Hb E, Hb D. (
  • [ 3 ] Citrate agar electrophoresis at pH 6.0-6.2 provides better resolution for different hemoglobin variants. (
  • Hemoglobin consists primarily of iron-bearing proteins called heme groups and moiety globin protein, which together give hemoglobin its ability to carry oxygen. (
  • The heme groups are molecular chains of different types and actually create six different hemoglobins that vary in their amino acid composition and also in the genes that control them. (
  • Hemoglobin is involved in the transport of other gases: It carries some of the body's respiratory carbon dioxide (about 20-25% of the total [9] ) as carbaminohemoglobin , in which CO 2 is bound to the heme protein. (
  • The name hemoglobin is derived from the words heme and globin , reflecting the fact that each subunit of hemoglobin is a globular protein with an embedded heme group. (
  • Accelerated autoxidation and heme loss due to instability of sickle hemoglobin. (
  • We have examined rates of heme transfer to hemopexin from hemoglobin in dilute aqueous solution (0.5 mg of Hb per ml) at 37 degrees C. HbO2 S loses heme 1.7 times faster than HbO2 A, with apparent rate constants of 0.024 hr-1 and 0.014 hr-1, respectively. (
  • and the abnormal deposition of heme and heme proteins on membranes of sickle erythrocytes. (
  • Hemoglobin is a tetramer with two pairs of globin chains, each containing an identical heme group. (
  • Hemoglobin consists of two portions: one portion is heme, which contains iron and the other portion is globulin chains or protein chains. (
  • Hemoglobin is a crystallizable, conjugated protein consisting of an iron-containing pigment (called heme or hematin) and a simple protein, globin. (
  • Hemoglobin accomplishes oxygen transport by changing its structure, and even its substructures, around the oxygen-binding heme groups, making them more or less accessible to the environment. (
  • When the last of the four heme subunits loses its oxygen, the structure of hemoglobin changes again, so that the size of the opening from the environment to the heme groups decreases, making it difficult for an oxygen molecule to rebind to the hemoglobin. (
  • Normally, iron binds with oxygen to form rust (iron oxide), but the structure of hemoglobin prevents this from happening, since it would inactivate the heme subunits. (
  • Carbon dioxide does not bind the heme in hemoglobin, but rather the amino groups at the ends of the hemoglobin's protein subunits. (
  • Hemoglobin consists of an iron-containing heme ring and four globin chains: two alpha and two nonalpha. (

  • SCD is a rare genetic disorder caused by mutations in the HBB gene, which provides instructions for making hemoglobin, a protein responsible for transporting oxygen in the blood. (
  • Hemoglobin c (abbreviated as HbC) is an abnormal hemoglobin in which glutamic acid residue at the 6th position of the β-globin chain is replaced with a lysine residue due to a point mutation in the HBB gene. (
  • Hemoglobin C is produced when a point mutation in the HBB gene causes amino acid substitution of glutamic acid to lysine at the 6th position of the β-globin chain of the hemoglobin. (
  • Under heterozygous condition, people are said to have hemoglobin C trait, or as hemoglobin C carriers, and they have one gene for HbC with either one HbA gene or HbS gene. (
  • Hemoglobin E trait is caused by a gene defect. (
  • This means you have 1 hemoglobin gene from each parent. (

  • Their red blood cells contain both hemoglobin C and either normal hemoglobin A or hemoglobin S. Hemoglobin C mutation is an autosomal recessive disorder that results from the biparental inheritance of the allele that encodes for hemoglobin C. If both parents are carriers of hemoglobin C, there is a chance of having a child with hemoglobin C disease. (
  • Normal adult hemoglobin (HbA), dominant in the blood from 3 to 6 months after birth, comprises two α and two β globin chains (α2β2) of 141 and 146 amino acids residues, respectively, with a total molecular weight of ~68,000 Da. (
