Molecular pathology of glucose-6-phosphate dehydrogenase (G6PD) was studied in 50 unrelated red cell G6PD deficient Turkish males. DNA analysis of G6PD genes revealed that 40 of the 50 subjects (80%) had G6PD B- 563T, 2 subjects (4%) A- (376G/202A) and one subject (2%) G6PD Chatam (1003A). The remaining 7 subjects (14%) did not have any of these three mutations.
