Abstract

The distribution of G1 m(f, z, a, and x), G3m(b0, b1, b3, c3, c5, g, s, and t) and Km(l) (formerly Inv[l]) allotypic markers have been examined in 184 Hungarians. The results indicate that the frequency of the immunoglobulin haplotypes Gmza;g, Gmzax;g, Gmf;b and Km1 is similar to the frequencies observed in surrounding populations. In addition, Hungarians were found to be polymorphic for the Oriental haplotype Gmza;bst, and had low frequencies of other uncommon haplotypes. Our data indicate that about 5% of the Hungarian genome is of Oriental origin.
