The Blue Fugates is a family in Kentucky known to have the rare disease methemoglobinemia Show more Question 4 The Blue Fugates is a family in Kentucky known to have the rare disease methemoglobinemia. Since you know bioinformatics you decide to use NCBI to find more information about this disease. A. Using OMIM find the entry the disease condition methemoglobinemia that affected the Fugate family. Include the OMIM identifier (the identifier is + followed by a six-digit number) associated with the disease description and chromosome location of the gene. Note: you may find several entries for methemoglobinemia the correct one is: METHEMOGLOBINEMIA DUE TO DEFICIENCY OF METHEMOGLOBIN REDUCTASE Gene map locus 22q13.31.2 B.
