Hb D-Los Angeles associated with Hb S or beta-thalassemia in four Mexican Mestizo families.
Twenty-five individuals were studied from four unrelated Mexican Mestizo families with Hb D-Los Angeles. We observed five compound heterozygotes: four for Hb S and Hb D, and one for Hb D andExpand

β-Thalassemia and βA globin gene haplotypes in Mexican mestizos
Abstractβ-globin haplotypes of 20 β-thalassemia (β-thal) and 87 βA Mexican mestizo chromosomes were analyzed to ascertain the origin of the β-thal alleles and the frequencies and distribution of theExpand

HLA-DQB1, -DQA1, -DRB1 linkage disequilibrium and haplotype diversity in a Mestizo population from Guadalajara, Mexico.
HLA-DQB1, -DQA1, and -DRB1 genes were typed by polymerase chain reaction with sequence-specific primer (PCR-SSP) in 159 healthy volunteers from 32 families living in Guadalajara, Mexico. Three-locusExpand

Analysis of betaS and betaA genes in a Mexican population with African roots.
To investigate the origin of the beta(A) and beta(S) genes in a Mexican population with African roots and a high frequency of hemoglobin S, we analyzed 467 individuals (288 unrelated) from differentExpand

Diversity of the 5′ β-Globin Haplotype of Four β-Thalassemia Mutations in the Mexican Population
β-Globin haplotypes have been used to investigate the origin and spread of β-globin mutations such as Hb S [β6(A3)Glu→Val, GAG>GTG], Hb E [β26(B8)Glu→Lys, GAG>AAG], and β-thalassemia (β-thal).Expand
