Brennan SO, Chan T, Obele M, George PM. Hb riccarton [alpha51(CE9)Gly-->Ser]: a variant arising from a novel mutation in the alpha1 gene. Hemoglobin. 2005;29(1):61-4.
Hb Riccarton was identified in a young boy under investigation for fatigue and microcytosis. However, the novel alpha51(CE9)Gly-->Ser mutation did not appear to be the cause of the microcytosis as it was also detected in the boy's father who had normal red cell indices.
