A sample from Malawi was studied for the genetic markers haptoglobin (HP), group-specific component (GC) and transferrin (TF). The following allele frequencies were found. For HP: 1F = 0.355, 1S = 0.204, 2FS = 0.396, 2SS = 0.044; the allele 2FF was not observed. For GC: 1F = 0.814, 1S = 0.057, 2 = 0.079, 1A1 = 0.047, 2A1 = 0.0025. For TF: C1 = 0.894, C2 =(More)
