What causes hemophilia?

The F8 gene produces a protein needed for blood clotting. People with hemophilia bleed longer when they are injured because they are unable to form stable blood clots. Mutations in this gene are responsible for more than 90% of hemophilia cases.

15937. What causes beta-thalassemia?

The HBB gene encodes an important blood protein called beta globin. A person with beta-thalassemia carries a mutation in both copies of the HBB gene, completely halting production of the beta globin protein.
