alpha-Globins Summary

Description: Members of the alpha-globin family. In humans, they are encoded in a gene cluster on CHROMOSOME 16. They include zeta-globin and alpha-globin. There are also pseudogenes of zeta (theta-zeta) and alpha (theta-alpha) in the cluster. Adult HEMOGLOBIN is comprised of 2 alpha-globin chains and 2 beta-globin chains.

Also Known As: alpha 1-globin; alpha-1 Globin; alpha-2 Globin; 1-globin, alpha; Globin, alpha-1 Show All >>
