    • Involvement in disease

      Defects in HBA1/HBA2 may be a cause of Heinz body anemias (HEIBAN) [MIM:140700]. This is a form of non-spherocytic hemolytic anemia of Dacie type 1. After splenectomy, which has little benefit, basophilic inclusions called Heinz bodies are demonstrable in the erythrocytes. Before splenectomy, diffuse or punctate basophilia may be evident. Most of these cases are probably instances of hemoglobinopathy. The hemoglobin demonstrates heat lability. Heinz bodies are observed also with the Ivemark syndrome (asplenia with cardiovascular anomalies) and with glutathione peroxidase deficiency.
      Defects in HBA1/HBA2 are the cause of alpha-thalassemia (A-THAL) [MIM:604131]. The thalassemias are the most common monogenic diseases and occur mostly in Mediterranean and Southeast Asian populations. The hallmark of alpha-thalassemia is an imbalance in globin-chain production in the adult HbA molecule. The level of alpha chain production can range from none to very nearly normal levels. Deletion of both copies of each of the two alpha-globin genes causes alpha(0)-thalassemia, also known as homozygous alpha thalassemia. Due to the complete absence of alpha chains, the predominant fetal hemoglobin is a tetramer of gamma-chains (Bart hemoglobin) that has essentially no oxygen carrying capacity. This causes oxygen starvation in the fetal tissues leading to prenatal lethality or early neonatal death. The loss of three alpha genes results in high levels of a tetramer of four beta chains (hemoglobin H), causing a severe and life-threatening anemia known as hemoglobin H disease. Untreated, most patients die in childhood or early adolescence. The loss of two alpha genes results in mild alpha-thalassemia, also known as heterozygous alpha-thalassemia. Affected individuals have small red cells and a mild anemia (microcytosis). If three of the four alpha-globin genes are functional, individuals are completely asymptomatic. Some rare forms of alpha-thalassemia are due to point mutations (non-deletional alpha-thalassemia). The thalassemic phenotype is due to unstable globin alpha chains that are rapidly catabolized prior to formation of the alpha-beta heterotetramers.
      Note=Alpha(0)-thalassemia is associated with non-immune hydrops fetalis, a generalized edema of the fetus with fluid accumulation in the body cavities due to non-immune causes. Non-immune hydrops fetalis is not a diagnosis in itself but a symptom, a feature of many genetic disorders, and the end-stage of a wide variety of disorders.

    Thank you for contacting Abcam regarding ab19362.

    I can confirm that this antibody will recognize the beta chain of hemoglobin.

    I hope this information is helpful. Please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any additional questions.

    I can confirm that the most common hemoglobin type is a tetramer (which contains 4 subunit proteins) called hemoglobin A, consisting of two a and two ß subunits non-covalently bound, each made of 141 and 146 amino acid residues, respectively. This is denoted as a2ß2. The subunits are structurally similar and about the same size. Each subunit has a molecular weight of about 16,000 daltons, for a total molecular weight of the tetramer of about 64,000 daltons. I have clarified this information on our datasheet and thank you for bringing this to my attention. Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of further assistance,

    Thank you for getting back to me. Unfortunately ab19192, ab19191, and ab19190 have only been shown to demonstrate reactivity against human so far. I do not have details of the predicted reactivity of these antibodies as unfortunately I do not have information as to the location of the epitope. I consider ab19362 your best option as this is predicted to react against rabbit and detects the alpha-globin monomer. I hope this information helps, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

    Thank you for your enquiry. Yes, Hemoglobin antibody (ab19362) will detect the alpha-globin monomer. However, I have been informed by the lab that our sheep polyclonal antibodies ab19192, ab19191, and ab19190 (all derived from the same sera) all detect the alpha-globin monomer better than ab19362. You may wish to check out the datasheets of each of these antibodies; they are all conjugated to either HRP, AP or FITC. I hope this information helps, please do not hesitate to contact us if you need any more advice or information.

    I would like to confirm that ab19363 is not the conjugated version of ab19362 ,the two antibodies are very different and unfortunately we do not have an non-HRP version of ab19362, my apologies. Should you decide to go ahead and purchase these products, please let us know how you get on by submitting a review and in return we will offer you 50 Abcam Loyalty points which you can use to redeem a variety of gifts. Please do not hesitate to contact us again if you need further assistance,
