Abstract

Human S-adenosylhomocysteine hydrolase (AHCY; EC 3.3.1.1) exhibits a genetic polymorphism first described by Bissbort et al. (1983) who demonstrated the occurrence of two common electrophoretic phenotypes (AHCY 1 and AHCY 2−1) determined by two codominant alleles (AHCY*1 and AHCY*2) at an autosomal locus.
