Frequency of human A gamma 75Thr globin chain in a population from Tunisia.

Author information

Hôpital Farhat Hached, Sousse, Tunisia.


Cord blood samples, collected at Sousse and Monastir, from Tunisian newborns were focused on a thin layer of agarose in order to detect the carriers of the A gamma 75Thr chain (A gamma chain bearing a replacement Ile-->Thr at position 75). Nineteen individuals (10%) were positive for this variant. The frequency of the A gamma 75Thr gene in the Tunisian population (0.050) is compared with that of various ethnic populations.
