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… Expand

Molecular characterization of G6PD mutations reveals the high frequency of G6PD Aures in the Lao Theung population
TLDR
The G6 PD Aures mutation is highly prevalent in the Lao Theung ethnic group and the technical simplicity of the developed ARMS-PCR will facilitate the final diagnosis of the G6PD Aures. Expand
G6PD deficiency among malaria-infected national groups at the western part of Myanmar with implications for primaquine use in malaria elimination
TLDR
The varying degree of G6PDd detected among malaria-infected national groups by advanced diagnostic tools, strongly support the recommend G 6PD testing by the National Malaria Control Program and the subsequent safe treatment of P. vivax by primaquine for radical cure. 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
Distribution of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase mutations in Southeast Asia
Abstract. Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is a heterogeneous enzyme abnormality with high frequency in tropical areas. We performed population screening and molecular studies ofExpand
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
Prevalence of Glucose 6-Phosphate Dehydrogenase Deficiency and Molecular Genetics of G6PD in Thai Population of Phayao Province
TLDR
The prevalence of G 6-PD deficiency among Thais in Phayao is lower than other Northern Thai populations, and g6PD Union and G6PD Kaiping are distinctly predominant, suggesting an influence from Chinese gene pools. Expand
Glucose‐6‐phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) mutations in Thailand: G6PD Viangchan (871G>A) is the most common deficiency variant in the Thai population
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
Incidence and complete molecular characterization of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency in the Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region of southern China: description of four novel mutations.
TLDR
A population-based molecular analysis combining phenotypic screening and genotypic detection using both multiplex primer extension/denaturing high performance liquid chromatography assay and DNA sequence analysis could be used to extend the knowledge of molecular defects of G6PD gene in different geographical areas.

Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase mutations in Mon and Burmese of southern Myanmar
TLDR
Despite a similar language root with Cambodian's Khmer language, this study suggests that Mon people share a common ancestry with Burmese rather than Cambodians. Expand
Frequency of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) mutations in Chinese, Filipinos, and Laotians from Hawaii
TLDR
It was found that the nucleotide 1360 mutation was the most common cause of G6PD deficiency in Filipinos, and DNA analysis by polymerase chain reaction amplification and special analytic procedures revealed 10 different missense mutations in 75 males. Expand
Glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency in Northeastern Thailand: prevalence and relationship to neonatal jaundice
Background Glucose 6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) deficiency is a common cause of neonatal hyperbilirubinemia and hemolytic anemia in Thai population. The prevalence of G6PD deficiency inExpand
Prevalence and distribution of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) variants in Thai and Burmese populations in malaria endemic areas of Thailand
TLDR
Investigation of the prevalence of G6PD variants in Thai population who resided in malaria endemic areas of Thailand as well as the Burmese population who residing in areas along the Thai-Myanmar border indicates difference in the prevalence and distribution of G 6PD gene variants among the Thai andBurmese populations in different malaria endemic Areas.
