Five enzymes and one protein were studied in 10 ethnical and two reference groups involving 1370 persons. The frequency of atypical heterozygotes of plasma cholinesterase was 2.7%. Aldehyde dehydrogenase I isozyme deficiency was found in four persons including two gypsies. The low paraoxonase activity was found in 48.7% of persons examined. The proportion of gene frequencies of sigma-ALADH-1 and sigma-ALADH-2 in the locus of sigma-amino-levulinic acid dehydratase was 9:1. The percentage of slow acetylators was 56.9% in the total study sample. The rate of heterozygotes in Pi alleles of alpha 1-antitrypsin (protease-inhibitor) was 3.7% and one Pi ZZ phenotype could be observed.
