Red cell 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase polymorphism in the Gadaba of Andhra Pradesh (India). Report of new variant phenotypes.

Abstract

Blood samples from 1000 unrelated, adult individuals of the Gadaba tribal population were screened for 6-phosphogluconate dehydrogenase. We report the occurrence of a new fast moving variant, which is caused by the allele PGD* Gadaba. This allele is reported for the first time among the tribal populations of Andhra Pradesh. Its frequency comes to 0.0115, and it was observed in heterozygous (2.10%) and homozygous (0.10%) conditions.
