The most frequent genotype associated with Hereditary hemochromatosis is the homozygosity for C282Y, a common HFE mutation. However, other mutations in HFE, transferrin receptor 2 (TFR2), hemojuvelin (HJV) and hepcidin (HAMP) genes, have also been reported in association with this pathology. A mutational analysis of these genes was carried out in 215 Portuguese iron-overloaded individuals previously characterized as non-C282Y or non-H63D homozygous and non-compound heterozygous. The aim was to… Expand
