Sickel Cell Research Papers
The population that ubiquitously inherits the condition is African Americans, Southeast Asians, and Middle Eastern societies (Ricci et al., 2013).“In the United States, approximately 70,000 to 100,000 people have the disease, and 2 million have the sickle cell trait” (Ricci et al., 2013, p....The sickled red blood Sickle cell anemia (sickle cell disease) is a disorder of the blood caused by an inherited abnormal hemoglobin (the oxygen-carrying protein within the red bloodcells)....[tags: Red blood cell, Sickle-cell disease] - Each person has their very own genetic blueprint that makes each person a little bit different from each other.This engraftment study was carried out in the lab of Matt Porteus, an associate professor of pediatrics at Stanford.Another major finding of the study is that the CRISPR/Cas9 system could introduce large alterations to the genes in patients' cells, in addition to small mutations or deletions. The findings, part of an upcoming paper, are a step toward treating sickle cell disease.
- Abstract Sickle Cell Anemia is a hereditary disease that changes the smallest and most important components of the body.
One disease that is inherited just like your hair color or eye color would sickle cell anemia, where there are not a sufficient amount of healthy red blood cells.
Sickle cell anemia is a condition where there is not an adequate quantity of red blood cells to carry oxygen throughout the body....
A single DNA mutation causes the body to make sticky, crescent-shaped red blood cells that contain abnormal hemoglobin and can block blood flow in limbs and organs.
In his talk at the annual American Association for the Advancement of Science meeting in Austin today, Bao revealed results from a series of tests to see whether CRISPR/Cas9-based editing can fix the mutation.
