Preliminary mutation analysis in the phenylalanine hydroxylase gene in Greek PKU and HPA patients



Preliminary mutation analysis in the phenylalanine hydroxylase gene in Greek PKU and HPA patients



Human Genetics 94(5): 573-575



The presence of nine mutations in the phenylalanine hydroxylase (PAH) gene, previously described in phenylketonuria (PKU) patients of other Mediterranean and European populations, was assessed in 47 Greek PKU and 3 hyperphenylalaninaemia (HPA) patients. Of the nine mutations investigated, only five were detected, characterizing 31% of the PKU alleles in our patients.
