|Dataset link||Gene Expression Profiling of High Altitude Polycythemia in Han Chinese migrated to Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau|
Subjects consisting of 5 masculine Han Chinese patients with HAPC (diagnosed according to international consensus statement on HAPC) and 5 matched controls, were migrants at River of TUOTUO area (Qinghai-Tibetan Plateau, 4550 m). Each of the five HAPC patients was matched to each of the control: gender, nationality, birthplace, duration migrating to plateau, height of location, work intensity. Peripheral blood samples were obtained at 4550m plateau from above subjects. Total RNA was extracted from peripheral blood leucocytes. The gene expression profilings were analysed by Human Genome U133 Plus 2.0 Array.
