SCI260 – Introduction to Biochemistry
Lesson 2

During tonight’s class, we discussed protein structure and how changes in the amino

sickle cell anemia disease?

1. What is the name (spell it out) of the specific protein that is affected in sickle cell
anemia disease?

2. Describe the specific change in the amino acid sequence that causes sickle cell
anemia disease?

3. How does this protein function in normal people who do not suffer from sickle cell
anemia disease?

4. What are the symptoms that individuals with sickle cell anemia disease experience?

5. Is there a cure for sickle cells anemia disease? If not, describe the types of
