Molecular genetics of beta thalassaemia in Asian Indians

Subtitle:
basis for prenatal diagnosis
Abstract:

The primary aim of this thesis was to outline an approach for the prenatal diagnosis of β-thalassaemia in the Asian Indian population by DNA analysis. A polymerase chain reaction (PCR) based, nonradioactive and rapid technique, allele specific PCR, was successfully developed for the detection of β-thalassaemia mutations. A large sample of 656 unrelated carriers from seven different regions of the Indian subcontinent was studied by allele specific PCR and DNA sequence analysis. Sixteen diff...
