Abstract

A second BamHI DNA polymorphism has been identified in the factor IX gene in an American black population at an allelic frequency of 0.13. This site has been localized within 500 basepairs (bp) 5' to the XmnI intron 3 polymorphic site and increases the heterozygosity of black females at the factor IX gene locus. In addition, haplotype analysis of factor IX genes at five polymorphic loci indicates that although there is conservation of sequences between the races, factor IX genes show more heterogeneity in an American black population and thus more heterozygosity is observed in black females compared with whites. This increased heterogeneity is due to DNA polymorphisms unique to black populations and to linkage equilibrium between the most 5' and 3' polymorphic sites in factor IX genes in blacks.
