Possible absence of common polymorphisms in coagulation factor IX gene in Japanese subjects.


Four distinct intragenic polymorphisms in the coagulation factor IX gene which have been reported to be important for family diagnosis of Caucasian hemophilia B were studied in 51 normal Japanese subjects (21 males and 30 females). High-molecular-weight DNA prepared from peripheral blood lymphocytes were digested with endonuclease, Ddel, Mspl, Taql or Xmnl, and were studied by Southern blot analysis with factor IX complementary DNA as a probe. None of the minor fragments produced by these enzymes was found in the normal Japanese DNA samples tested, although the probe detects minor allelic forms in control Caucasian DNA samples. Our data suggest that the frequent polymorphic sites found in Caucasians are possibly absent in the Japanese population.
