Hemoglobin alpha chain belongs to the globin family and is involved in oxygen transport from the lung to the various peripheral tissues. It is a heterotetramer of two alpha chains and two beta chains in adult hemoglobin A (HbA); two alpha chains and two delta chains in adult hemoglobin A2 (HbA2). Hemoglobin alpha chain is expressed in red blood cells and defects in HBA1/HBA2 can lead to alpha thalassemia, the most common of monogenic diseases (1).
