 Synonyms & Historicals
Heinz Bodies .
Bodies, Heinz .
Abnormal intracellular inclusions, composed of denatured hemoglobin, found on the membrane of red blood cells. They are seen in thalassemias, enzymopathies, hemoglobinopathies, and after splenectomy. .
Hemoglobinopathies .
Hemoglobinopathy .
A group of inherited disorders characterized by structural alterations within the hemoglobin molecule. .
Hemoglobins .
Eryhem .
Ferrous Hemoglobin .
Hemoglobin .
Hemoglobin, Ferrous .
The oxygen-carrying proteins of ERYTHROCYTES. They are found in all vertebrates and some invertebrates. The number of globin subunits in the hemoglobin quaternary structure differs between species. Structures range from monomeric to a variety of multimeric arrangements. .
Hemoglobins, Abnormal .
Abnormal Hemoglobins .
Hemoglobins characterized by structural alterations within the molecule. The alteration can be either absence, addition or substitution of one or more amino acids in the globin part of the molecule at selected positions in the polypeptide chains. .
delta-Thalassemia .
delta Thalassemia .
delta-Thalassemias .
A hereditary disorder characterized by reduced or absent DELTA-GLOBIN thus effecting the level of HEMOGLOBIN A2, a minor component of adult hemoglobin monitored in the diagnosis of BETA-THALASSEMIA. .
Hemoglobin A .
Normal adult human hemoglobin. The globin moiety consists of two alpha and two beta chains. .
Cyanosis .
Cyanoses .
A bluish or purplish discoloration of the skin and mucous membranes due to an increase in the amount of deoxygenated hemoglobin in the blood or a structural defect in the hemoglobin molecule. .
