Background Information

The hemoglobin molecule is a tetramer consisting of two alpha- and two beta-globin-like chains. HBA1 (hemoglobin alpha chain) protein is a alpha-type chain of hemoglobin encoded by two independent genes (HBA1 and HBA2) whose coding sequences are identical. Two alpha chains coupled with two beta chains constitute the adult hemoglobin (HbA or α2β2). HBA1 is also the component of fetal hemoglobin (HbF or α2γ2). This antibody detects a major band around 14-16 kDa in the western blot analysis of heart tissue and K-562 cells. A higher band around 26-27 kDa can also be observed occasionally, which may represents the dimer form of HBA1 (PMID: 20836851). The antibody is specific to HBA1and has no cross reaction to other globin member.
