This gene's human homologue has been identified in the following GWAS studies:

  • Beta thalassemia/hemoglobin E disease: A genome-wide association identified the common genetic variants influence disease severity in beta0-thalassemia/hemoglobin E. (View Study)
  • F-cell distribution: A QTL influencing F cell production maps to a gene encoding a zinc-finger protein on chromosome 2p15. (View Study)
  • Fetal hemoglobin levels: Genome-wide association study shows BCL11A associated with persistent fetal hemoglobin and amelioration of the phenotype of beta-thalassemia. (View Study)
  • HbA2 levels: HbA2 levels in normal adults are influenced by two distinct genetic mechanisms. (View Study)
  • Inflammatory biomarkers: A genome-wide association scan on the levels of markers of inflammation in Sardinians reveals associations that underpin its complex regulation. (View Study)
  • Malaria: Genome-wide and fine-resolution association analysis of malaria in West Africa. (View Study)
  • Malaria: Genome-wide association study indicates two novel resistance loci for severe malaria. (View Study)
  • Platelet counts: GWAS of blood cell traits identifies novel associated loci and epistatic interactions in Caucasian and African-American children. (View Study)
