The data on the genetic studies of Iranian-speaking populations from Azerbaijan (Talyshs and Tats) are presented. In these populations gene frequency distributions for the immunological (AB0, MN, Rhesus-D, -C, -E, P, Lewis, and Kell-Chellano) and biochemical (HP, GC, C′3, TF, 6PGD, GLO1, ESD, ACP1, and PGM1) gene markers were determined. Comparison of the genetic structure of the populations examined with the other Iranian-speaking populations (Persians and Kurds from Iran, Ossetins, and Tajiks… Expand

Tables from this paper


[Migration structure and inbreeding in the Talysh population].
The origin of genes in Talysh population (South Azerbaijan Republic) is considered and inbreeding is estimated both by means of genealogy and from the frequency of marriages between the persons of the same kin. Expand
[Genetic and demographic structure of the Talysh population].
The main new factor (in conditions of increased family size) is the intensive migration from the population, mainly in men, that results in transformation of sex index in the reproductive age and a large part of women stay unmarried. Expand
The Distribution of the Human Blood Groups and other Polymorphisms
The blood groups have been a trail blazer for the study of human polymorphism, and this book provides a data bank in a single volume which can be consulted at short notice in most larger laboratories. Expand
Investigations on the polymorphism of glyoxalase I (EC in the population of Hessen, Germany
The segregation of phenotypes in 50 families and 32 mother-child combinations supports the assumed autosomal codominant inheritance and the possibility of a simultaneous typing for GLO, esterase D (EsD), and carbonic anhydrase2 (CA2) on one gel is discussed. Expand
Investigations on the PGM1a polymorphism (phosphoglucomutase-EC by isoelectric focusing
The segregation of the phenotypes in the offspring supports the assumed way of autosomal codominant inheritance in phosphoglucomutase (PGM1) phenotypes. Expand
Reconstruction of Evolutionary Trees
The reconstruction problem can be briefly stated as finding the rooted evolutionary tree best fitting the current DNA data and once the best tree is identified, it is also of interest to estimate the branch lengths of the tree. Expand
Serum Protein Electrophoresis in Acrylamide Gel: Patterns from Normal Human Subjects
Technical improvements in the method for vertical acrylamide gel electrophoresis (Raymond) have resulted in improved resolution and reproducibility, and the electrophoretic patterns of normal humans may be divided into at least 12 discrete groups. Expand

The number of genes in the human genetic code is far smaller than previously thought, totalling between 28,000 and 35,000, compared with earlier estimates that ranged up to 140,000; the June issue of Nature Genetics had three papers in press on this topic. Expand
Ultrathin‐layer isoelectric focusing in 50–100 μm polyacrylamide gels on silanized glass plates or polyester films
Ultrathin‐layer isoelectric focusing in 50–100 μm polyacrylamide gels covalently bound to glass plates or polyester films, pretreated with methacryloxypropyl‐trimethoxy‐silane, is described. The gelsExpand
