26840243 results suggest that KLF1 directly regulates the beta-globin gene, but probably has less direct impact on expression of the gamma-globin gene in fetal erythroblasts
26686224 Data show that the ancestral allele C at rs2855126, located upstream of gamma-globin (HBG1) is associated with increased serum uric acid levels.
26575252 These data confirm the regulatory role of the HBG1: g.-225_-222 region that exerts its effect under conditions of erythropoietic stress characteristic for beta-thal patients.
26053062 a successful induction of gamma-globin includes a reduction in BCL11A, KLF1 and TAL1 expression.
25986606 Results indicate that compound II induces the gamma globin gene in hydroxyurea (HU)-resistant primary adult erythroid cells and suggest potenetial therapy for sickle cell disease (SCD) and severe beta-thalassemias.
25971621 analysis of a point mutation that increases fetal globin expression through de novo recruitment of the activator TAL1 to promote chromatin looping of distal enhancers to the modified gamma-globin promoter
25808664 Inactivation of HDAC1 or HDAC2 induces gamma-globin expression without altering cell cycle or proliferation.
25681747 Findings indicate that both antisickling beta-globin and gamma-globin lentiviral vectors demonstrate efficient gene transfer into sickle cells.
25565447 This report we discusses the molecular characteristics and diagnostic criteria of a new (A)gamma chain variant that was detected during newborn screening and named Hb F-Sykesville MD [(A)gamma113(G15)Val --> Ile; HBG1: c.340G>A].
24914133 Data indicate that hydroxyurea (HU) induces SAR1 protein expression, which in turn activates gamma-globin expression, predominantly through the Gialpha/JNK/Jun pathway.
