Molecular characterization of deletional forms of beta-thalassemia in Taiwan.

Abstract

beta-Thalassemia is one of the most common genetic diseases in Taiwan. The most common mutations of beta-globin are point mutations, and six mutations account for over 90% of cases. Less than 5% of the cases with beta-globin gene deletion result in beta-thalassemia minor. The mutational type of the deletion is not clear in Taiwanese. We used polymerase… (More)
