  • We determined the gene frequency of the glycoprotein (GP) Ibbeta Ala108Pro substitution. The Pro108 allele was not found in 208 healthy Japanese and 200 healthy Caucasians. In vitro expression studies showed surface expression of the GPIbbeta Pro108 variant, suggesting the possibility of the involvement of the substitution as an alloantigen.
