Red cell glyoxalase I and placental soluble aconitase polymorphisms in the three major ethnic groups of Malaysia


SummaryWe surveyed three major ethnic groups in Malaysia for red cell glyoxalase I polymorphism. The allelic frequencies for GLO1 were: Malays, 0.196; Chinese, 0.200; and Indians, 0.287. No rare variant was seen. By means of gel electrophoresis of placenta samples, the ACON2s allele was found to be polymorphic in Chinese and Malays. The gene frequencies… (More)
