The mean values with standard deviations for 43 individuals with coinheritance of common alpha deletion and beta-thai mutation are shown in this column for specific parameters
showed that coinheritance of alpha thalassemia with homozygous beta thalassemia resulted in melioration of the beta thalassemia.
Attempts were made to determine the coinheritance and genetic carriage elements of these genes (within the limitations of genome assembly).
While, sickle cell anemia (homozygous HbSS) is the commonest form, other forms of SCD result from coinheritance of HbS, with other abnormal [beta] globin chain variants viz, sickle hemoglobin C (Hb-SC) and 2 types of sickle p thalassemia, sickle Beta positive thalassemia (HbS [beta]+ Thal.
These cases should be investigated for presence of alpha thalassemia or its coinheritance with beta thalassemia gene.
XmnI polymorphism, the T-allele in linkage to the haplotype I and coinheritance of alpha thalassaemia gene) were found to predict a response in these studies.
Studies in Asian populations have shown an association between ADH1C alleles and alcoholism, but the protective effect of ADH1C*1 in that population may be explained in large part by its coinheritance with the ADH1B*2 allele.
Gene evolutionary history is predicted by creating a coinheritance matrix of all the proteins in the genome sequence of interest (rows) against a library of genomes (for example, all of the genome sequences available on NCBI; one column per genome).
Concept of linkage disequilibrium: Coinheritance of two or more loci on a chromosome within a genetic region is called genetic linkage.
6) Other forms result from coinheritance of Hb S with other abnormal [beta]-globin-chain variants.
Therefore, SNPs are not randomly sorted along chromosomes; the nonrandom coinheritance of alleles, which is called LD, tends to be higher among nearby SNPs.
