The authors report the characterization of the amount of β mRNA in a Kurdish Jewish population with β0-thalassemia using the same methods employed for characterization of the Catania and Ferrara β0 patients. We found very low amounts of β mRNA sequence, consistent with the presence of β0-thalassemia of the β mRNA-negative population type. In addition, no globin gene deletion was detected that could account for the absence of β mRNA.
