AbstractThe prevalence of the BamH I site 3' to the β globin gene in Chinese people was determined in 123 normal subjects, 40 patients with heterozygous β thalassaemia, and 25 patients with homozygous β thalassaemia. The site was present in 71.1% and absent in 28.9% of the chromosomes carrying normal β genes. All 25 patients with β thalassaemia major had the site. This BamH I polymorphism may be used for prenatal diagnosis in about 29% of the pregnancies at risk.
