Abstract

187 Irish blood donors were examined for the presence of C282Y and H63D missense mutations using a multiplex PCR and restriction digest protocol. The allele frequency for C282Y was found to be 12.3% which is higher than reported in other studies and concurs that this mutation is of Celtic origin.
