Comments: Described as an unstable haemoglobin (Hb) with reduced oxygen affinity in a family heterozygous for Hb A/Hb Lepore. Alteration of the α1β1 interface, favouring the formation of monomers with subsequent accumulation of free globin subunits. The bulkier residue of phenylalanine at position G13 can be accomodated in the α1β1 interface by displacing the side chain of glutamine β127 (H5) in the deoxy-form of haemoglobin. This is not possible in the oxy-form of haemoglobin. Hence, Phe substitution favours the deoxy-form, causing Hb Peterborough to have a low oxygen affinity.

We follow the HGVS sequence variant nomenclature and IUPAC standards.
