Comments: Allele 'A' associated with an increased susceptibility to develop alloantibodies in transfused sickle cell disease (SCD) patients of African ancestry. Nominally replicated in an independent cohort of SCD transfusion recipients. Located in an enhancer region embedded within the lncRNA gene LINC01847 and is near binding sites for multiple transcription factors and enhancer binding proteins, such as CEBPB (pro-inflammatory function).
