SummaryGlucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G-6-PD) deficiency, identified by a dye decolorization test, was found in 101 (12.5 percent) of 811 male subjects from northern Tailand. Blood samples from 169 subjects with normal G-6-PD activity and from all 101 subjects with G-6-PD deficiency were examined by electrophoresis on cellulose acetate gel with the following results: In all samples with normal G-6-PD activity the enzyme had the electrophoretic mobility of type B G-6-PD. 73 of the 101 G-6-PD… CONTINUE READING
