The biosynthesis of Hb F in place of the deficient Hb A could be a suitable treatment for beta hemoglobinopathies. Among newborn Hb F-Malta-I heterozygotes, it could be shown that the XmnI sequence alone had little, if any effect on gamma-globin gene expression, but interplay with the (AT)(X)T(Y) sites in cis and in trans may occur. In contrast, while the(More)
Pluronic hydrogels composed of PEO-PPO-PEO tri-block copolymers have received a lot of attention for their applicability to drug delivery. These systems can be injected into the body in a liquid form and then, in response to temperature changes, self-assemble into nano-sized micelles which ultimately aggregate to form a gel. The phase behaviour and(More)
