INTRODUCTION: The α-chain variant Hb Q-India (c.193G>C) is caused by a point mutation GAC→CAC at codon 64 of the α1 globin gene and is clinically silent. Point mutations can be diagnosed easily by many simple polymerase chain reaction (PCR) techniques including PCR-restriction digest, but for Hb Q-India the restriction digest has never been described. In this work we aimed to develop a restriction enzyme digestion assay for DNA diagnosis of Hb Q-India, in order to increase the panel of re...Expand abstract
