Sequence change in the HS2-LCR and Gg-globin gene promoter region of sickle cell anemia patients

The fetal hemoglobin (HbF) levels and ßS-globin gene haplotypes of 125 sickle cell anemia patients from Brazil were investigated. We sequenced the Gg- and Ag-globin gene promoters and the DNase I-2 hypersensitive sites in the locus control regions (HS2-LCR) of patients with HbF level disparities as...
