Deficiency of AMP Deaminase in Human Erythrocytes
At the Vth International Symposium on Human Purine and Pyrimidine Metabolism in 1986 cases of a complete deficiency of erythrocyte AMP deaminase have been presented1. The deficiency was found to be inherited as an autosomal recessive trait. The frequency of mutant gene has been investigated in Japan, Seoul, and Taipei only and was found to be very high in the population of this regions2, ranging from 2.7 to 3.7 heterozygote of mutant gene per 100 population.
