Abstract

Sequence polymorphisms within the 5′HS2 segment of human locus control region is described among sickle cell anemia patients. Distinct polymorphic patterns of a simple sequence repeat are observed in strong linkage disequilibrium with each of the five major βS haplotypes. Potential functional relevance of this polymorphic region in globin gene expression is discussed.
