Haemoglobin Titusville: alpha94 Asp replaced by Asn. A new haemoglobin with a lowered affinity for oxygen.
A new haemoglobin variant with a decreased oxygen affinity is described, in which the substitution, alpha 94 (G1) Asp replaced by Asn, affects the alpha1beta2 contact alpha1G1-beta2G4. The relevanceExpand

Different types of alpha-thalassaemia and significance of haemoglobin Bart's in neonates.
Abstract The assumption that the α-chain gene is duplicated and that there are potentially two genes for α-thalassaemia per chromosome, one for each α-chain gene, can explain, among other things, whyExpand
