Abstract: Hb Kurosaki [α7(A5)Lys→Glu (AAG→GAG)], has been found for the first time in Thailand. The 30-year-old Thai male had a normal hematological profile at the steady state, but showed an abnormal hemoglobin (Hb) present at a level of 28%. Protein characterization was performed by automated sequencer analysis of the abnormal α-globin chain and amino acid analysis of the abnormal αT-1,2 peptide. Direct DNA sequence analysis of selectively amplified segments of the α1 and α2 genes showed that codon 7 of the α2-globin gene was heterozygous for AAG (Lys) and GAG (Glu). This was confirmed by restriction endonuclease digestion with Eco31I. Copyright © 2005 Taylor & Francis, Inc.
