    Abstract

    We have detected four different mutations in the porphobilinogen deaminase (PBGD) gene in acute intermittent porphyria (AIP) families from England, Norway, and Sweden. A splicing mutation in the first position of intron 8 (Int8 + 1) was found in a family from England and a missense mutation in exon 12 (Glu250) was detected in a Norwegian family. Two mutations were identified in Swedish families, one splicing mutation in the first position of intron 3 (Int3 + 1) and one missense mutation in exon 8 (Pro119).
