Storyboard Text

  • Good Morning Ms. Diana, my dad was just telling me about sickle, can you tell me more about his disease?
  • Oh Reggie, sickle is very lucky to only have the sickle cell trait, in places like Africa where there is Malaria, his trait is advantageous!
  • Does sickle cell protect him from malaria?
  • Having the trait causes him to produce very low levels of haem-oxygenase 1, which is an enzyme that breaks down the malaria disease.
  • He has all the benifits from the trait without as many disadvantages that the abnormal shape causes, such as clogged arteries.
  • Wow! Sickle is the coolest! I'm glad I'm healthy, but he is so fascinating!
