Distribution of human Zn-alpha-2-glycoprotein types in Chinese and Korean populations

Hum Hered. 1990;40(5):311-2. doi: 10.1159/000153952.

Abstract

The genetic variation in Zn-alpha 2-glycoprotein (ZAG) was investigated by polyacrylamide gel isoelectric focusing and immunoblotting. The samples comprised 590 Chinese from 2 localities (Shenyang: n = 390; Kaohsiung: n = 200) and 873 Koreans from 2 localities (Seoul: n = 523; Cheju: n = 350). The allele frequencies were: ZAG*1 = 0.9962, ZAG*5 = 0.0038 in Shenyang; ZAG*1 = 1.0000 in Kaohsiung; ZAG*1 = 0.9971, ZAG*3 = 0.0029 in Seoul, and ZAG*1 = 0.9929, ZAG*3 = 0.0071 in Cheju.
