Despite its well known monogenic etiopathogenesis, sickle cell disease (SCD) is characterized by a striking variability of clinical presentation. There is growing evidence that genetic factors may be involved in this variability. Human leukocyte antigen (HLA)-G is a non-classical HLA molecule which was shown to be expressed at sites of inflammation and in inflammatory diseases. Besides its large and highly polymorphic promoter region, the 3' UTR region seems also to play an important role on… CONTINUE READING
