The mutants of the vitamin-D-binding protein: more than 120 variants of the GC/DBP system

Vox Sang. 1988;54(4):215-25. doi: 10.1111/j.1423-0410.1988.tb03908.x.


In this report 40 newly observed GC/DBP mutants are described. A list of the thus far identified GC mutants is presented: in addition to the three common alleles, a total of 124 Gc variants are recorded. Their population distribution is described and their relationship to the molecular features of the DBP protein is discussed. The methods currently in use for the delineation of GC mutants are briefly considered.
