Erythrocyte glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase deficiency in Poland--a study on the 563 and 1311 mutations of the G6PD gene.

Author information

Department of Laboratory Diagnostics, Medical Center of Postgraduate Education, Warsaw, Poland.


Studies on the mutation 563T and silent mutation 1311T of the glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) gene in Poland were performed in 26 families affected with G6PD deficiency classified-according to WHO-as group 2 G6PD deficiency. Both mutations were found in 19 families, including 17 of Polish origin. Mutation 563T alone was found in 1 Greek female. The frequency of the silent mutation 1311T in Polish unaffected controls was 0.10. It is postulated that at least parts of the Polish (or Middle-Eastern European) and Mediterranean populations are of a common origin.
