Metabolic persistence of fetal hemoglobin.

Abstract

Hereditary persistence of fetal hemoglobin (HPFH) has typically been ascribed to mutations in the beta-globin gene cluster. Pharmacologic agents, including the short-chain fatty acid butyrate, have been shown to upregulate fetal and embryonic globin gene expression. In this report we investigate the possibility that metabolic derangements characterized by… (More)
