The distribution of group specific component (GC), transferrin (TF) and alpha-1-antitrypsin (PI) subtypes was determined by isoelectric focusing of plasma samples from 140 unrelated individuals belonging to the Baiga tribe of Madhya Pradesh, India. The allele frequencies observed for GC (GC*1S = 0.6742, GC*1F = 0.1326 and GC*2 = 0.1932), TF (TF*C1 = 0.7920, TF*C2 = 0.1606, TF*C3 = 0.0146 and TF*D = 0.0328) and PI (PI*M1 = 0.7179, PI*M2 = 0.1750, PI*M3 = 0.0893, PI*S = 0.0107 and PI*F = 0.0071) demonstrate appreciable heterogeneity of the Baigas compared to other populations of the region.
