 Synonyms & Historicals
Hemoglobin A .
Normal adult human hemoglobin. The globin moiety consists of two alpha and two beta chains. .
delta-Globins .
delta Globin .
delta Globins .
delta-Globin .
A member of the beta-globin family. In humans, delta-globin is encoded in the beta-globin gene cluster located on CHROMOSOME 11. Two delta-globin chains along with two alpha-globin chains form HEMOGLOBIN A2 which makes up about 3% of the HEMOGLOBIN in adults. .
Fetal Hemoglobin .
Hemoglobin, Fetal .
Hemoglobin F .
The major component of hemoglobin in the fetus. This HEMOGLOBIN has two alpha and two gamma polypeptide subunits in comparison to normal adult hemoglobin, which has two alpha and two beta polypeptide subunits. Fetal hemoglobin concentrations can be elevated (usually above 0.5%) in children and adults affected by LEUKEMIA and several types of ANEMIA. .
beta-Globins .
Non-alpha Globin Chain, Unspecified .
Non alpha Globin Chain, Unspecified .
beta Globin .
beta Globins .
beta-Globin .
Members of the beta-globin family. In humans, they are encoded in a gene cluster on CHROMOSOME 11. They include epsilon-globin, gamma-globin, delta-globin and beta-globin. There is also a pseudogene of beta (theta-beta) in the gene cluster. Adult HEMOGLOBIN is comprised of two ALPHA-GLOBIN chains and two beta-globin chains. .
Hemoglobin A2 .
A2, Hemoglobin .
An adult hemoglobin component normally present in hemolysates from human erythrocytes in concentrations of about 3%. The hemoglobin is composed of two alpha chains and two delta chains. The percentage of HbA2 varies in some hematologic disorders, but is about double in beta-thalassemia. .
gamma-Globins .
A gamma-Globin .
G gamma-Globin .
A gamma Globin .
G gamma Globin .
gamma Globin .
gamma Globins .
gamma-Globin .
Members of the beta-globin family. In humans, two non-allelic types of gamma-globin - A gamma and G gamma are encoded in the beta-globin gene cluster on CHROMOSOME 11. Two gamma-globin chains combine with two ZETA-GLOBIN chains to form the embryonic hemoglobin Portland. Fetal HEMOGLOBIN F is formed from two gamma-globin chains combined with two ALPHA-GLOBIN chains. .
alpha-Globins .
alpha 1-globin .
alpha-1 Globin .
alpha-2 Globin .
1-globin, alpha .
Globin, alpha-1 .
Globin, alpha-2 .
alpha 1 Globin .
alpha 2 Globin .
alpha Globin .
alpha Globins .
alpha-Globin .
Members of the alpha-globin family. In humans, they are encoded in a gene cluster on CHROMOSOME 16. They include zeta-globin and alpha-globin. There are also pseudogenes of zeta (theta-zeta) and alpha (theta-alpha) in the cluster. Adult HEMOGLOBIN is comprised of 2 alpha-globin chains and 2 beta-globin chains. .
zeta-Globins .
zeta Globin .
zeta Globins .
zeta-Globin .
A member of the alpha-globin family. In humans, zeta-globin is encoded in the alpha-globin gene cluster located on CHROMOSOME 16. Two zeta-globin chains combine with two EPSILON GLOBIN chains to form the embryonic HEMOGLOBIN Gower 1. .
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. .
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. .
