AHSP Information: AHSP Protein, AHSP Antibody and AHSP Gene

AHSP Protein

AHSP protein function

Acts as a chaperone to prevent the harmful aggregation of alpha-hemoglobin during normal erythroid cell development. Specifically protects free alpha-hemoglobin from precipitation. It is predicted to modulate pathological states of alpha-hemoglobin excess such as beta-thalassemia. {ECO:0000269|PubMed:12066189}.

AHSP protein expression

Tissue specificity

Expressed in blood and bone marrow.


By GATA1 during erythroid maturation.
