Summary Three populations (Poliya, Deshi, and Tiyor) of the Koch ethnic group have been studied for the distribution of three serum protein and four red cell enzyme polymorphisms. There was no significant difference in the allelic frequencies of these systems in the three populations of the Koch ethnic group. The overall gene frequencies were as follows:Hp 1, 0.21;Gc 1F, 0.34;Gc 1s, 0.36;Gc 2, 0.30;Tf C1, 0.66;Tf C2, 0.26;Tf C3, 0.001;Tf D, 0.06;GLO 1, 0.21;PGI 2, 0.04;AK 2, 0.01;PGM 1+, 0.80;PGM 1−, 0.06;PGM 2+, 0.11 andPGM 2−, 0.02. The phenotypic distribution at all the loci was at Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium.
