Abstract

Amplification of the β-globin gene by the PCR technique, followed by the enzymatic of the DNA fragment obtained, was used to easily identify the human β-globin variant Hb Hamilton which is characterized by the valine to isoleucine substitution at position 11. The result revealed the predicted G to A transition at codon 11 which abolishes a MaeIII restriction site. This mutation, which is rather common among Sardinians, is at the level of one of the five CpG dinucleotides of the β-globin gene.
