    Abstract

    Haptoglobin is a plasma glycoprotein with α2: electrophoretic mobility which plays a role in hemoglobin catabolism. It is of interest to the forensic scientist because it exhibits polymorphism. The three most common phenotypes are designated Hp 2-1 (the heterozygous state), Hp 2-2, and Hp 1-1.
