Protein sequence:

Also known as: Hb Yuxi

Comments: Hb Gibbon was identified by newborn screening in a male proband with no family history for haemoglobinopathy or other screening abnormalities. Child was born to Caucasian parents. Father was carrier for this variant. Normal electrophoretic pattern by CE at age 1 month. Variant detection by HPLC (VARIANT II) and Q-TOF MS. Normal blood indices with borderline microcytosis at age 12 months, which persisted at age 17 months. Residue Hb β-Pro124 stabilizes the Hb α1-β1 interaction at α-Arg31 and α-Leu34. In a second case, the 373C>A found in a 27-year-old female and her mother both presented with normal hematological parameters.
