Increased oxidative metabolism is associated with erythroid precursor expansion in β0-thalassaemia/Hb E disease.


Erythropoiesis in β0-thalassaemia/Hb E patients, the most common variant form of β-thalassaemia in Southeast Asia, is characterized by accelerated differentiation and over-expansion of erythroid precursor cells. The mechanism driving this accelerated expansion and differentiation remain unknown. To address this issue a proteomic analysis was undertaken to… (More)
