Biochemical Characterization and Ligand Binding Properties of Neuroglobin, a Novel Member of the Globin Family*
Neuroglobin is a recently discovered member of the globin superfamily that is suggested to enhance the O2 supply of the vertebrate brain. Spectral measurements with human and mouse recombinantExpand

HSP70 sequestration by free α-globin promotes ineffective erythropoiesis in β-thalassaemia
β-Thalassaemia major (β-TM) is an inherited haemoglobinopathy caused by a quantitative defect in the synthesis of β-globin chains of haemoglobin, leading to the accumulation of free α-globin chainsExpand

α-Hemoglobin Stabilizing Protein (AHSP), a Kinetic Scheme of the Action of a Human Mutant, AHSPV56G*
A kinetic analysis has been made of the interaction of α-Hb chains with a mutant α-hemoglobin stabilizing protein, AHSPV56G, which is the first case of an AHSP mutation associated with clinicalExpand

Unstable and Thalassemic α Chain Hemoglobin Variants: A Cause of Hb H Disease and Thalassemia Intermedia
We report an update of the α-globin gene point mutations resulting in structural modification associated with an α-thalassemia (α-thal) phenotype. These variants, barely symptomatic in theExpand

Neuroglobin Ligand Binding Kinetics
Neuroglobin, cytoglobin, and hemoglobins from Drosophila melanogaster and Arabidopsis thaliana were studied for their ligand binding properties versus temperature. These globins have a common featureExpand

High-level production of recombinant sulfide-reactive hemoglobin I from Lucina pectinata in Escherichia coli. High yields of fully functional holoprotein synthesis in the BLi5 E. coli strain.
Hemoglobin I (HbI) from Lucina pectinata is a monomeric protein composed of 143 amino acids with high sulfide affinity. Its unique heme pocket contains three residues not commonly found in vertebrateExpand

High-yield expression in Escherichia coli of soluble human alpha-hemoglobin complexed with its molecular chaperone.
The alpha-subunits of human hemoglobin (Hb) have been more difficult to express than beta-chains owing to the high instability of alpha-chains. Here, we describe the production in Escherichia coli ofExpand

Transfer of Human α- to β-Hemoglobin via Its Chaperone Protein
The α-hemoglobin-stabilizing protein (AHSP), a small protein of 102 amino acids, is synthesized in red blood cell precursors. It binds specifically to α-hemoglobin (α-Hb) subunits acting as aExpand

Recombinant hemoglobin βG83C‐F41Y
We have engineered a stable octameric hemoglobin (Hb) of molecular mass 129 kDa, a dimer of recombinant hemoglobin (rHb βG83C‐F41Y) tetramers joined by disulfide bonds at the β83 position. One of theExpand

Southeast Asian ovalocytosis in White persons.
We describe two White persons, a girl and her mother, presenting with Southeast Asian ovalocytosis. The child was evaluated for scoliosis. The red cell indices were normal but the cell counterExpand
