G6PD multiplex allele specific PCR. G6PD variants in 252 Myanmar malaria patients were analyzed by multiplex allele specific PCR. Six different types of G6PD variants were identified in 50 malaria patients (19.8%): Mahidol (487 G > A, 337 bp), Mediterranean (563 C > T, 262 bp), Viangchan (871 G > A, 501 bp), Union (1360 C > T, 803 bp), Canton (1376 G > T, 681 bp) and Kaiping (1388 G > A, 557 bp). Representative PCR results for G6PD variants are presented. Each PCR reaction was confirmed by an internal control (wild type G6PD control, 1234 bp) following the manufacturer’s instruction. The results presented in this figure were obtained in male malaria patients except for Canton
