G6PD Ferrara I has the same two mutations as G6PD A(-) but a distinct biochemical phenotype

The cloning and sequencing of the normal glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) gene has led to the study of the molecular defects that determine enzymatic variants. In this paper, we describe the mutations responsible for the Ferrara I variant in an Italian man with a family history of favism, from the Po delta. Nucleotide sequencing of this variant… (More)
