Abstract

A total of 1622 placental samples belonging to Brahmins (280), Vysyas (196), Muslims (294) and Scheduled Caste (852) groups living in Andhra Pradesh, South India were studied electrophoretically for the distribution of either mitochondrial or soluble GoT types. No variants of the soluble form of GoT were found. However, 2 samples in Vysya, 3 samples in Muslim groups (2 in Shia and 1 in Khoja) and 2 samples among the Scheduled Caste groups (1 in Mala and 1 in Paky) were found to display a triple banded pattern representing the GoTM 2 -1 phenotype.
