The 4 most common hemoglobin (Hb) variants worldwide and in the US are Hb S, Hb E, Hb C, and Hb D.
In addition, there are other variants with electrophoretic mobilities identical or similar to those of Hb S and Hb C.
As reported previously (23), Hb O-Arab and Hb C had statistically different retention times (P <0.
4, lane 3) and slightly cathodal to Hb C on acid electrophoresis (data not shown).
Two [beta]-variants (Hb E and Hb E-Saskatoon) were identified, each of which had alkaline mobilities on the Helena Hemoglobin Electrophoresis System identical to that of Hb C (data not shown) and SPIFE mobilities (Fig.
It previously has been shown that the presence of Hb C or S trait, both of which have substitutions at position six of the [beta] chain, can affect the accuracy of some immunoassay results (8).
Samples containing Hb C trait showed modestly higher results than the HPLC method used.
Samples with hemoglobin variants were identified by comparison of retention times on the Diamat system (Bio-Rad Clinical Laboratories) to known retention times for Hb S and Hb C.
The mean percentage of the Hb 5 in samples with Hb AS was 38% (range, 25-41%), and the mean percentage of Hb C in samples with Hb AC was 38% (range, 29-41%).
