In this study, we used the distribution rank, which has been developed by us over the past several years, to quantify 134 mutations in the human hemoglobin α-chain in order to gain an insight into the general pattern in mutations. The results suggest that the pattern presented by distribution rank can approximately estimate the positions that are sensitive to mutations in human hemoglobin α-chain.

Keywords: Human hemoglobin a-chain; mutation; probability

More about this publication?
  • Protein & Peptide Letters publishes short papers in all important aspects of protein and peptide research, including structural studies, recombinant expression, function, synthesis, enzymology, immunology, molecular modeling, drug design etc. Manuscripts must have a significant element of novelty, timeliness and urgency that merit rapid publication. Reports of crystallisation, and preliminary structure determinations of biologically important proteins are acceptable. Purely theoretical papers are also acceptable provided they provide new insight into the principles of protein/peptide structure and function.
