  • Published 2007

Abstract

Alpha-thalassemias are characterized by decreased hemoglobin alpha chain synthesis; alpha-zerothalassemia being the condition where no normal alpha globin is produced, and alpha-plus-thalassemia being the condition where there is reduced globin production. There are two alpha globin genes per haploid genome, and alpha thalassemia abnormalities can result… (More)
