    An atomic-level understanding of the interactions between hemoglobin molecules that contribute to the formation of pathological fibers in sickle cell disease remains elusive. By exploring crystal structures of mutant hemoglobins with altered polymerization properties, insight can be gained into sickle cell hemoglobin (HbS) polymerization. We present here the 2.0-A resolution deoxy crystal structure of human hemoglobin mutated to tryptophan at the beta6 position, the site of the glutamate --> valine mutation in HbS. Unlike leucine and isoleucine, which promote polymerization relative to HbS, tryptophan inhibits polymerization. Our results provide explanations for the altered polymerization properties and reveal a fundamentally different double strand that may provide a model for interactions within a fiber and/or interactions leading to heterogeneous nucleation.
