Abnormal protein: One genetic mutation such as the one that is found in sickle cell causes abnormal hemoglobin beta chains to form which result in sickling of the hemoglobin since it can't go to its normal shape. The sickling of the hemoglobin and red blood cell gets caught in small vessels leading to all of the problems associated with sickle cell disease.
