Comments: Described as an unstable haemoglobin (Hb) with reduced oxygen affinity in a double heterozygote with β0-thalassaemia. Alteration of the α1β1 interface, favouring the formation of monomers with subsequent accumulation of free globin subunits. The change in side chain at β111 possibly disturbs the α1β1 contact at the adjacent site, β112 (G14). Positive heinz body test and increased isopropanol precipitability of the Hb. Detection of abnormal Hb variant by reversed-phase HPLC.
