    • Relevance

      The gamma globin genes (HBG1 and HBG2) are normally expressed in the fetal liver, spleen and bone marrow. Two gamma chains together with two alpha chains constitute fetal hemoglobin (HbF) which is normally replaced by adult hemoglobin (HbA) at birth. In some beta-thalassemias and related conditions, gamma chain production continues into adulthood. The two types of gamma chains differ at residue 136 where glycine is found in the G-gamma product (HBG2) and alanine is found in the A-gamma product (HBG1). The former is predominant at birth. The order of the genes in the beta-globin cluster is: 5'-epsilon -- gamma-G -- gamma-A -- delta -- beta--3'

    Customer reviews and Q&As


    For the IHC images, the age of the spleen donor is 44, and the lung donor's age was 66. For the WB image, we used adult RBC's (age unknown).

    I'm still checking with the lab regarding the fetal protein being expressed in adult tissues/cells. I'll let you know what I find out.
