Abstract

Combined analysis of DNA polymorphisms in the human β-globin gene cluster and in cloned β-genes has revealed the association of specific β-thalassaemia mutations and β-gene polymorphisms with particular flanking polymorphisms. A systematic study of cloned genes identified several new mutations, one of which possibly affects transcription. The strategy used may be applicable to other diseases of single-copy genes.
