First Description of a β-Thalassemia Mutation, -86 (C > G) (HBB: c.-136C > G), in a Chinese Family

, : First Description of a β-Thalassemia Mutation, -86 (C > G) (HBB: c.-136C > G), in a Chinese Family. Hemoglobin 39(6): 448-450

We present the first description of a Chinese family with a β-thalassemia (β-thal) mutation -86 (C > G) (HBB: c.-136C > G). This mutation changes the conserved promoter sequence within the proximal CACCC box of the β-globin gene that leads to a phenotype of β(+)-thal. The β-globin haplotype analysis revealed that the -86 mutation in our case was linked with haplotype I [+ - - - - + +]. This haplotype was commonly found both in the β-thal mutation and the β(A) gene. Our results suggest that the -86 mutation possibly does not have a distinct origin.

In this paper we develop predictions from models of life-long demographic heterogeneity. These predictions are then compared to observations of mortality in large laboratory populations of Drosophila melanogaster. We find that the demographic hete...

It is shown that zero point quantum fluctuations completely lift the accidental continuous degeneracy that is found in mean field analysis of quantum spin nematic phases of hyperfine spin-2 cold atoms. The result is two distinct ground states whic...
