Abstract

Summary In order to determine the gene frequencies of nine polymorphic sites associated with FVIII and FIX genes in the Turkish population a sample of 50‐235 unrelated X chromosomes from healthy individuals were analysed by using PCR‐based assays. The Turkish population was found to be as polymorphic as Europeans in the FVII and FIX genes. Analysis of FIX haplotypes revealed that the most frequent haplotype observed in European populations and Anglo‐Americans was also very common among Turks. The present population‐based study indicates that two marker loci, namely HindIII and St14 in the factor VIII gene and DdeI and HhaI in the factor IX gene, are highly informative and useful markers that can be used in DNA linkage analysis for the assessment of haemophilia carriers and affected fetuses in the Turkish population.
