Rare beta-thalassaemia mutations in Asian indians.


Five beta-thalassaemia mutations hitherto undescribed in Asian Indians were identified in beta-thalassaemia carriers originating from the Indian subcontinent by direct sequencing of their beta-globin genes which were amplified by the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). A T-G substitution at IVS 2 position 837, which probably creates an alternative acceptor… (More)
