AbstractGlucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is highly prevalent in Southeast Asians. G6PD mutations are associated with specific ethnic groups in Southeast Asia. Mon is a minority ethnic group in Myanmar, which speaks Monic, a distinct language of Mon-Khmer classification. We studied G6PD mutations in Mon and Burmese males of southern Myanmar who migrated to Thailand in Samutsakhon province. G6PD deficiency was identified in 19 (12%) of 162 Mon males and 17 (10%) of 178 Burmese… Expand
Glucose -6- Phosphate Dehydrogenase (G6PD) variants in East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea: G6PD Jammu, G6PD Vanua Lava, and a novel variant (G6PD Dagua)
TLDR
The detection of three G6PD variants indicates the heterogeneity of the studied population, and these variants could be important genetic markers for clarifying the gene flow among the population of Southeast Asian and Pacific Island countries. Expand
Prevalence and molecular characterization of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency in northern Thailand.
TLDR
The study shows that the prevalence of G6PD deficiency in northern Thai population is high and combination of the common Chinese mutations is the majority, a distribution different from central and southern Thailand where G6 PD Viangchan is the prominent variant. Expand
PREVALENCE OF GLUCOSE 6-PHOSPHATE DEHYDROGENASE DEFICIENCY AND GENETIC MUTATIONS AMONG KAREN AND LAO POPULATIONS IN THAILAND
Glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is highly prevalent in Southeast Asia. G6PD mutations are often ethnic-specific. Karen is an ethnic minority of Myanmar and resides in both MyanmarExpand
Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase ( G 6 PD ) variants in East Sepik Province of Papua New Guinea : G 6 PD Jammu , G 6 PD Vanua Lava , and a novel variant ( G 6 PD Dagua )
A community-based survey was conducted to assess the prevalence of G6PD deficiency and malaria in two villages (St. Martins, Dagua) of Wewak district, East Sepik Province, Papua New Guinea. A totalExpand
Prevalence and molecular characterization of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency in the Lue ethnic group of northern Thailand
TLDR
Observed prevalence and variant types of the G6PD gene in the Lue population are similar to that of the Tai-Kadai speaking ethnic groups in southern China, which is consistent with their historically close line of ancestry, but the founder effect that occurred during the LUE’s transboundary migration from China to Thailand showed its impact upon different patterns of G6 PD distribution among each Lue village.

Prevalence and Molecular Characterization of Glucose-6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency at the China-Myanmar Border
TLDR
This study systematically evaluated the prevalence of G6PD deficiency in the Kachin (Jingpo) ethnic group along the China-Myanmar border and determined the underlying G6 PD genotypes and found the Mahidol variant was the most common variant. Expand
Characterization of G6PD Genotypes and Phenotypes on the Northwestern Thailand-Myanmar Border
TLDR
The distribution and phenotypes of mutations causing G6PD deficiency in the male population of migrants and refugees in a malaria endemic region on the Thailand-Myanmar border were characterized and further studies are needed to characterise the haemolytic risk of using 8-aminoquinolines in patients with these genotypes. Expand
Molecular characterization of G6PD mutations in the Phuan tribe in Thailand
TLDR
G6PD deficiency in Phuan is highly frequent and G6PD Viangchan is the most common mutation, which suggests that Phuans have coevolved with Thais, and were influenced by gene flow from Chinese and Indian mutations. Expand
Brief communication (Original). Molecular characterization of G6PD mutations in the Phuan tribe in Thailand
Background: Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is an enzymopathy with high frequency in Southeast Asians. Phuan is a minority tribe in Thailand. The prevalence of G6PD deficiency andExpand
Prevalence of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency among malaria patients in Upper Myanmar
TLDR
Results of this study suggest that more concern for proper and safe use of PQ as a radical cure of malaria in Myanmar is needed by combining G6PD deficiency test before PQ prescription. Expand

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) mutations in Myanmar: G6PD Mahidol (487G>A) is the most common variant in the Myanmar population
TLDR
The survey of malaria diagnoses and treatments in remote areas of Myanmar suggests that the Myanmar population is derived from homogeneous ancestries and are different from Thai, Malaysian, and Indonesian populations. Expand

TLDR
The results strongly suggest that the Bajo peoples may have different ancestors from those for Sikka and Ende, and may be much closer to continental Southeast Asian populations. Expand

TLDR
G6PD Viangchan appears from this study to be the most common G6PD mutation in the Thai population, bringing into question previous reports that G6 PD Mahidol is most prevalent. Expand
G6PD Viangchan (871G>A) is the most common G6PD-deficient variant in the Cambodian population
TLDR
It is concluded that G6PD Viangchan (871G>A) was the most common mutation among Cambodians, suggesting a common ancestry of people from these three countries. Expand
