Abstract Tryptic digests of normal human and sickle cell haemoglobins contain a peptide fragment (peptide 4) which apparently alone of all the peptides has a different chemical structure in the two
Gene Mutations in Human Hæmoglobin: the Chemical Difference Between Normal and Sickle Cell Hæmoglobin
TLDR
Gene Mutations in Human Haemoglobin: the Chemical Difference Between Normal and Sickle Cell Haemocytes is illustrated.

TLDR
Samples of human haemoglobin from normal adults and from sickle-cell anaemic patients have been heat denatured and then digested with trypsin and “fingerprints” show that the two proteins differ in only one peptide.
THE STATE OF HEMOGLOBIN IN SICKLED ERYTHROCYTES
  • C. Stetson
  • Medicine
    The Journal of experimental medicine
  • 1966
Electron microscopic and other evidence have provided support for the hypothesis that the sickling phenomenon is due to the intracellular formation of long slender crystals of reduced sickle
Structural Similarities between Hemoglobins A and F
A striking similarity has been found between the composition of peptides obtained from tryptic digestion of normal adult hemoglobin (hemoglobin A) and fetal hemoglobin (hemoglobin F).
Modulation of the phenotypic diversity of sickle cell anemia.
TLDR
This review focuses on genetically determined modulation of hemoglobin concentration and fetal hemoglobin levels, which have important influences upon sickle hemoglobin polymerization and the resulting pathophysiology.
SICKLE CELL DISEASE
TLDR
An inherited disorder of red blood cells characterized by lifelong anemia and recurrent painful episodes of leukaemia is diagnosed.
Sickle cell paths converge on hydroxyurea

The realization that a mutation in a haemoglobin gene is at the root of sickle cell anaemia and the discovery of an effective treatment are separated by years. But sickle cell research is a model for
Increased metabolic heat production by erythrocytes in sickle-cell disease.
TLDR
It is suggested that the conformational changes in the structure of sickle haemoglobin caused by deoxygenation may cause an increased erythrocytic metabolic activity and significantly contribute to the shortened lifespan of red cells in sickle-cell disease.
Aspartame effect in sickle cell anemia
To examine the in vitro and in vivo attributes of aspartame and to determine its efficacy for treating sickle cell anemia.

Amino-Acid Composition of Four Different Kinds of Human Hæmoglobin
THE following hæmoglobins from human blood are known at present: normal adult (A), fœtal (F), sickle cell (B), and C, D, E and G. The most useful method of distinguishing between these hæmoglobins is
Sickle cell anemia a molecular disease.
TLDR
The erythrocytes of certain individuals possess the capacity to undergo reversible changes in shape in response to changes in the partial pressure of oxygen, and these cells change their forms from the normal biconcave disk to crescent, holly wreath, and other forms.
Amino acid composition of hemoglobins of normal Negroes and sickle-cell anemics.
TLDR
The amino acid composition of the two hemoglobins was determined by means of the methods of starch chromatography in order to ascertain the validity of the hypothesis that the hemoglobin of sickle-cell anemia hemoglobin has 2 to 4 more net positive charges than normal hemoglobin.
The Inheritance of Sickle Cell Anemia.
TLDR
The ability of the red cells to sickle was observed to have a genetic basis not long after sickle cell anemia, and this hypothesis has a counterpart in the relationship which has been demonstrated to exist between thalassemia major and minor.
The free amino groups of haemoglobins.
TLDR
It is recommended that the proteases described in this paper shall be considered identical until evidence to the contrary is adduced, and that they be called leaf proteases, adding where necessary the name of the plant.
