The frequency of the γ chain variant AγT in different populations, and its use in evaluating γ gene expression in association with thalassemia
SummaryThe occurrence of the AγT chain (i.e. Aγ75 Ile→ Thr) in different populations was evaluated through a study of 4250 cord blood samples and blood samples from more than 350 SS1 patients. HighExpand

Detection of a new hybrid α2 globin gene among American Blacks
SummaryWe have examined the α globin gene complex for 49 individuals with α-thalassemia-2 (−α3.7). Crossovers resulting in α-thalassemia-2 (type I) were observed in all 57 chromosomes with the −α3.7Expand

GγAγ(δβ)°‐thalassaemia and a new form of γ globin gene triplication identified in the Yugoslavian population
Among several hundred apparently healthy Yugoslavian adults with slightly elevated levels of fetal haemoglobin, we have identified two distinct abnormalities, (a) A GγAγ(δβ)°‐thalassaemiaExpand

(A gamma delta beta)0-Thalassaemia in Blacks is due to a deletion of 34 kbp of DNA.
DNA from members of 10 Black families with conditions considered to be G gamma (delta beta)0-thalassaemia or G gamma (delta beta)0-HPFH were studied by using restriction enzyme analysis. One or moreExpand

Gamma thalassemia resulting from the deletion of a gamma-globin gene
The first example of a deletion of one of the two gamma globin genes has been characterized through an analysis of the DNA of the heterozygous parent of a homozygous newborn, using restriction endonuclease mapping techniques. Expand
