244 point mutations have been recorded in human hemoglobin β-chain, of which some change the oxygen affinity of human hemoglobin β-chain. We use the amino-acid distribution probability to quantify these mutations, and use the cross-impact analysis with Bayes' law to determine the probability that changes the oxygen affinity of human hemoglobin β-chain under mutations.
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.
