Cloning of the hereditary hemochromatosis gene: implications for pathogenesis, diagnosis, and screening.

Abstract

Hereditary hemochromatosis (HH) is one of the most common genetic disorders affecting populations of European ancestry. It is characterized by an inappropriately high iron absorption that leads to iron overload preferentially in the parenchymal organs. Although the severity of the phenotype can be modified by a number of factors, it is clear that most… (More)
