The incidence of this disease is high among Ashkenazi Jews in whom a single mutation (E285A) accounts for 80–85% of the mutant alleles, with only two other mutations accounting for the bulk of the remainder.
11), are coded by nuclear genes. Mutations of these genes cause diseases transmitted as autosomal recessive disorders.
