26460260 AHSP expression was higher in patients with sickle cell anemia versus thalassemia, with no significant difference between BTM and BTI. Expression was higher in patients with NTDT and on hydroxyurea therapy.
25648458 In maturing RBC progenitors AHSP bind to free alpha-globin chains to increase the HbA production. (Review)
25611244 AHSP is predominantly expressed in erythroid precursors in bone marrow biopsy specimens from patients with hematologic malignancies.

20627634 No significant association has been found between specific AHSP alleles or haplotypes and the disease severity of beta-thalassemia. Our study suggested that AHSP is not a significant genetic modifier of beta-thalassemia in southern China.

19706593 A cis-proline in alpha-hemoglobin stabilizing protein directs the structural reorganization of alpha-hemoglobin.
19482015 Different mechanisms may be responsible for the amount of abnormal Hb recovered, such as a highly unstable alpha chain or an impaired formation of the complex AHSP/alpha-Hb or a modification of the alphabeta dimer formation.

18179859 The AHSP stabilizes the alphaHb chain, avoiding its precipitation and its ability to generate ROS, which implicate in cell death.Data indicate that AHSP may be significant for human hemoglobin formation and it is a key protein during human erythropoiesis.
18166800 the alpha2-globin mutation cod 117 TTC>TCC or alpha 117(GH5)Phe>Ser impairs the interaction of the alpha-chain variant with the AHSP and prevents its stabilizing effect, thus leading to the alpha-chain pool reduction
17874450 The 12391 G>A SNP is common and represents a potential mechanism through which genetically determined variations in AHSP expression could influence beta-thalassemia.
17194704 results reveal a plasticity of the alpha-Hb active site in the presence of the chaperone AHSP and indicate that the AHSP was still active at 300 MPa
16339656 Review. AHSP specifically binds free alphaHb, stabilizes its structure, & limits its ability to generate reactive oxygen species. It binds the G & H helices of alphaHb on a surface that largely overlaps with the alpha1-beta1 interface of HbA.
