A material comprising 846 normal families from the Copenhagen area (fam. no. 604–1505) was tested for δ‐aminolevulinatedehydrogenase. Among the 1697 unrelated individuals (parents), the gene frequencies were 0.9378 for ALADH*1 and 0.0622 for ALADH*2. The distribution of phenotypes and the segregation ratios did not deviate significantly from the expected values. Linkage analysis was carried out for markers on chromosome 9, following up a hint of ALADH‐ORM linkage in part of the material. This… Expand
Human δ-aminolevulinate dehydratase: chromosomal localization to 9q34 by in situ hybridization
TLDR
Southern blot analysis of somatic cell hybrids informative for ALA-D was consistent and supported the finding of only one locus for this heme biosynthetic enzyme. Expand
Human delta-aminolevulinate synthase: assignment of the housekeeping gene to 3p21 and the erythroid-specific gene to the X chromosome.
TLDR
The mapping of the ALAS2 gene to the X chromosome and the observed reduction in ALAS activity in X-linked sideroblastic anemia suggest that this disorder may be due to a mutation in the erythroid-specific gene. Expand
Genetic study of orosomucoid by isoelectric focusing and immunoprinting in patients with carcinoma
TLDR
The ORM1 S phenotypes are significantly more frequent in carcinoma patients than healthy individuals from the same geographical area and the patients' sera frequently showed additional ORM‐positive proteins which focused slightly cathodically to the ORM 2 A band, which may represent posttranslational modifications of the ORm1*S allele product.

Ethnic variation in genotype frequencies of delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase (ALAD).
TLDR
The frequencies of ALAD2 in Asian populations were comparable to those in Caucasians, while Africans had no mutation allele, and these findings may help to understand the interethnic disparities in susceptibility to lead toxicity. Expand
Gentics and linkage relationships of the C3 polymorphism: discovery of C3‐Se linkage and assignment of LES‐C3‐DM‐Se‐PEPD‐Lu synteny to chromosome 19
TLDR
The C3 complement system was examined in Danish material of normal families, which had earlier been examined for 59 marker systems, and in a myotonic dystrophy family material and the distribution of unrelated inviduals did not deviate significantly from the Hardy‐ Weinberg expectation. Expand
Delta-aminolevulinic acid dehydratase genotype and lead toxicity: a HuGE review.
TLDR
No firm evidence exists for an association between ALAD genotype and susceptibility to lead toxicity at background exposure levels; therefore, population testing for the ALAD polymorphism is not justified. Expand
Linkage between serum cholinesterase 2 (CHE2) and γ‐crystallin gene cluster (CRYG): assignment to chromosome 2
TLDR
Serum cholinesterase 2 (CHE2) was examined in a Danish material of normal families that has been tested earlier for 70–78 classical marker systems and 25 RFLP systems and may, accordingly, be assigned to the location of CRYG: chromosome 2, bands q33‐q35. Expand
δ-Aminolevulinate dehydratase: Induced expression and regional assignment of the human gene to chromosome 9q13»qter
TLDR
Examination of secondary, tertiary, and quaternary XX-8 subclones revealed that the expression of the human isozyme segregated with human chromosome 9q, confirming the provisional regional assignment made by classical linkage studies. Expand

TLDR
This study provides the first analysis of the allele frequency distribution of the ALAD gene in a Turkish population and the results are compared with other world populations. Expand
