The Thirteenth Labor of Hercules

The Thirteenth Labor of Hercules

 

As we all may know, Hercules had performed twelve labors assigned by Eurystheus in Greek mythology, obeying Zeuss will. Now, Zeus has assigned Hercules a thirteenth labor that will take place in Lazar Middle School, in the faraway land called America. First, Hercules would have to travel to Montville, New Jersey from his place at Mount Olympus, for he was immortal by now. Upon his arrival at Lazar Middle School, he would have to be the custodian for a day without his super-human abilities and he couldnt be fired for any reason.

Sickle-Cell Disease

What is it?

Sickle-Cell Disease is a genetic disorder that affects the blood. People produce an abnormal form of hemoglobin. Sickle-shaped red blood cells cannot carry as much oxygen as normal shaped cells.

 

Describe the Genetics.

 

You would inherit sickle-cell disease from your parents, who may be carriers with the sickle cell trait or parents with the sickle cell disease. In order to inherit the sickle cell hemoglobin, you are born with it and if you inherit one sickle gene, you have the sickle cell trait (meaning that you will produce both normal hemoglobin and abnormal hemoglobin. You will usually not have symptoms of the disease). If you inherit two sickle cell genes, you have the sickle cell disease. The allele for the sickle cell trait is most common in people of African ancestry and the allele for the sickle cell trait is codominant with the normal allele.
