Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


A novel MspI DNA polymorphic site has been found in intron 22 of the human factor VIII gene. This site is informative almost exclusively in the Japanese population (heterozygosity 0.45) and will be of considerable importance in carrier detection and prenatal diagnosis of hemophilia A in this population.
