Familial distal renal tubular acidosis (dRTA) can be caused by mutations in the Cl2/HCO32 exchanger of the renal Type A intercalated cell, kidney AE1/SLC4A1. dRTA-associated AE1 mutations have been reported in families from North America, Europe, Thailand, Malaysia, Papua-New Guinea, Taiwan, and the Philippines, but not India. The dRTA mutation AE1 A858D(More)
We report the clinical features and molecular characterization of 23 patients with cyanosis due to NADH-cytochrome b5 reductase (NADH-CYB5R) deficiency from India. The patients with type I recessive congenital methemoglobinemia (RCM) presented with mild to severe cyanosis only whereas patients with type II RCM had cyanosis associated with severe(More)
OBJECTIVE To provide prenatal diagnosis of pyruvate kinase deficiency by direct DNA analysis in an Indian family. MATERIALS AND METHOD This case report describes diagnosis of a novel homozygous mutation in PKLR gene that subsequently helped the family in the next pregnancy. RESULTS Advancement in molecular genetics has resulted in the prenatal diagnosis(More)
Eighteen unrelated pyruvate kinase (PK)-deficient Indian patients were identified in the past 4 years with varied clinical phenotypes ranging from a mild chronic haemolytic anaemia to a severe transfusion-dependent disorder. We identified 17 different mutations in the PKLR gene among the 36 mutated alleles. Ten novel mutations were identified: 427G>A,(More)
OBJECTIVE Pyruvate Kinase (PK) deficiency is the most common enzymopathy of the glycolytic pathway in erythrocytes. It constitutes one of the common causes of hereditary non-spherocytic hemolytic anemia. The aim of this study was to screen newborns in India for pyruvate kinase (PK) deficiency in relation to unconjugated hyperbilirubinemia. METHODS(More)
BACKGROUND Among the red cell membrane disorders, hereditary spherocytosis (HS) is one of the most common causes of inherited hemolytic anemia. The aim of this study was to compare the flow-cytometric approach for screening of red cell membrane disorders based on osmotic fragility with the eosin-5-maleimide (E5'M) dye test. A group of β-thalassemia(More)
We report a novel homozygous mutation responsible for NADH-b(5)R deficiency in a family from Ratnagiri district in western India with recessive congenital methemoglobinemia (RCM) type I. The propositus was a 20-year-old female with a history of increasing cyanosis exacerbated by fever and weakness. There was no history of cardiac illness or exposure to(More)
BACKGROUND This study was undertaken to analyse cases of microcytosis, and/or haemolytic anaemia where an unusual peak on HPLC or an abnormal electrophoretic mobility in isolation or along with common beta-globin gene defects was found, and to identify the molecular abnormality in them. PATIENTS AND METHODS Investigations included a complete blood count,(More)
