The adult beta-globin gene of Ammotragus lervia (Barbary sheep or aoudad) has been sequenced completely, including 185 base pairs of 5' flanking region and 168 base pairs 3' to the stop codon, and compared with that of other caprines such as goat (Capra hircus), wild Corsico-Sardinian (Ovis aries musimon) and Cypriot (O. a. ophion) mouflons, and domestic(More)
In order to investigate the polymorphism of ?-globin chain of hemoglobin amongst caprines, the linked (I)? and (II)? globin genes of Barbary sheep (Ammotragus lervia), goat (Capra hircus), European mouflon (Ovis aries musimon), and Cyprus mouflon (Ovis aries ophion) were completely sequenced, including the 5? and 3? untranslated regions. European and Cyprus(More)
The K562 cell line has been proposed as a useful experimental system to identify anti-tumor compounds acting by inducing terminal erythroid differentiation. K562 cells exhibit a low proportion of hemoglobin-synthesizing cells under standard cell growth conditions, but are able to undergo terminal erythroid differentiation when treated with a variety of(More)
Two healthy newborns, heterozygous for two different gamma-globin chain mutations, were observed during an electrophoretic screening for hemoglobinopathies in Sassari, North Sardinia (Italy). The variants were characterized by reversed phase high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) and sequencing of amplified gamma-globin genes. One of the two(More)
