  • 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 Myanmar and Thailand. A comprehensive molecular characterization of Karen-associated G6PD mutations has, hitherto, not been conducted. In addition, heterogeneity of G6PD mutations in Laotian has not been defined. Here, we performed G6PD deficiency screening and molecular characterization of associated G6PD… CONTINUE READING
