Abstract
The distribution of the types of a genetic polymorphism in a given population is an objective of considerable anthropologic interest. Although the fact that two populations may have similar polymorphic ratios is not evidence of close relationship, it can be concluded that little intermixing could have occurred if these ratios are quite different. In practice, such information is useful in planning searches for genetic linkage, and it may also lead to uncovering unexpected origins of certain families. For these purposes, the proportions of types of two red cell enzymes--acidphosphatase and phosphoglucomutase--and of two serum factors--haptoglobins and group specific component (Gc)--were determined in four ethnic groups native to Alaska.
