OBJECTIVES The polymorphism of the β-globin gene haplotypes and frameworks is useful in the determination of the unicentric and multicentric origin of a mutational event. In our study, the haplotypes linked to the Tunisian β(S) mutation are determined to improve our knowledge of the chromosomal background of the β-globin gene in sickle-cell anemia in(More)

OBJECTIVES Different thalassemia mutations have been reported in various ethnic groups and geographical regions in Tunisia. In the present study, we have investigated two rare β(+) -thalassemia mutations, that have not previously been reported in the Tunisian population [β -56 (G > C); HBBc. -106 G > C] and [β -83 (G > A); HBBc. -133 G > A]. METHODS The(More)
