Abstract

The overseas Chinese in West Malaysia are almost exclusively from the south-eastern provinces of China-Kwangtung, Fukien, and Kwangsi. To institute a comprehensive thalassaemia control programme for this region we have characterised the beta thalassaemia mutations in 16 Chinese patients from West Malaysia: 4 beta thalassaemia mutations were seen: a) an A----G substitution in the TATA box [-28 base pairs (bp)], an A----T substitution in codon 17 [17 A----T], c) a 4 base pairs - TCTT deletion in codon 41-42 [frameshift mutation (FSC 41-42)], and d) a C----T substitution at the second intervening sequence (IVS 11) position 654. Similar mutations have been described in patients from the south-eastern provinces of China. The delineation of the specific mutations present will enable effective prenatal diagnosis for beta thalassaemia of ethnic Chinese in West Malaysia to be instituted.
