Part of the Advances in Forensic Haemogenetics book series (HAEMOGENETICS, volume 2)


Aims of the study:
  • Investigation of the applicability of Immobiline dry plates for the determination of alpha-1-antitrypsin(Pi) and transferrin(Tf) polymorphisms.

    The system to define alpha-1-antitrypsin gene products was also set up in view of the diagnosis and prevention of premature emphysema and progressive liver disease.

  • Population genetics of alpha-1-antitrypsin and transferrin in North-West Germany.
