"Hemoglobin, Sickle" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus,
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure,
which enables searching at various levels of specificity.
An abnormal hemoglobin resulting from the substitution of valine for glutamic acid at position 6 of the beta chain of the globin moiety. The heterozygous state results in sickle cell trait, the homozygous in sickle cell anemia.
- Deoxyhemoglobin S
- Deoxygenated Sickle Hemoglobin
- Hemoglobin, Deoxygenated Sickle
- Sickle Hemoglobin, Deoxygenated
