A gene on chromosome 11p15.5 that encodes beta haemoglobin, which transports O2 in the circulation.

Molecular pathology
HBB mutations cause sickle cell anaemia, Heinz body anaemia, and various forms of beta thalassaemia.

Only serum IgG1 levels in SARD patients displayed a mean value (9.77 [+ or -] 5.68 g/L) which was above the normal range (3.82-9.29 g/L) and statistically different from our HBD mean value (6.46 [+ or -] 1.64g/L, p = 0.020658).

The most common Hb variants worldwide are HbS, HbE, HbC, and HbD. Unlike HbS and HbC traits, for which most of the commonly used [HbA.sub.1c], methods have already been, and continue to be, evaluated (4-6) few data are available on the accuracy of [HbA.sub.1c], measurement in the presence of HbE or HbD traits.

Because large anionic glycoproteins, i.e., mucins, are abundantly present in saliva (24) and in other epithelial cell-derived body fluids (25, 26), we conducted ELISAs of fixed concentrations of hBD-2 and -3 in the presence of serially diluted purified salivary mucins to determine the involvement of these molecules in masking hBD detection.
