Molecular genetic studies on iron-related disorders. As part of an European project (ERARE-115 HMA-IRON) and a National project (Ramón Areces), we are proceeding with molecular diagnosis of rare microcytic anemias, including sideroblastic and non-sideroblastic anemias. Genes studied by complete sequencing: Sideroblastic anemias: ALAS2 (Sideroblastic Anemia X-Linked, OMIM 300751), SLC25A38 (Anemia, … View more
