Molecular genetics of coagulation factor VIII gene and hemophilia A

Published inThrombosis and haemostasis, vol. 74, no. 1, p. 322-328
Publication date1995

This review summarizes the structure of human coagulation factor VIII gene and its deduced protein sequence and the molecular etiology of hemophilia A in man. The gross DNA rearrangements including the common inversions of factor VIII (which account for about 45% of severe hemophilia A patients), and the point mutations are discussed. The functional consequences of certain missense mutations are illustrated.
