sickle cell anemia
A chronic, usually fatal inherited form of anemia marked by crescent-shaped red blood cells, occurring almost exclusively in Blacks, and characterized by fever, leg ulcers, jaundice, and episodic pain in the joints.
Sangamo’s core competencies enable the engineering of a class of
DNA-binding proteins known as zinc finger DNA-binding proteins (ZFPs).
Engineering of ZFPs that recognize a specific DNA sequence enables the
creation of sequence-specific ZFP Nucleases (ZFNs) for gene modification
and ZFP transcription factors (ZFP TFs) that can control gene expression
and, consequently, cell function. Sangamo has entered into a strategic
collaboration with Shire AG to develop therapeutics for hemophilia,
Huntington’s disease and other monogenic diseases and has
established strategic partnerships with companies in non-therapeutic
applications of its technology including Dow AgroSciences and
Sigma-Aldrich Corporation. For more information about Sangamo, visit the
