ß-globin, a subunit of hemoglobin, is a small protein (146 amino acids) that transports oxygen throughout our bodies. This protein has a ring-like heme group, which contains an iron atom that binds the oxygen. This subunit also contains the glutamic acid at position 6 that, when changed to valine, results in the sickle cell mutation.
