Determination of Adenylate Kinase Variants in Two Washington, D.C., Population Samples: A Microcellulose Acetate Procedure
In the forensic science laboratory erythrocyte adenylate kinase (AK) polymorphism has been used successfully to further individualize dried bloodstains [1,2]. Three distinct phenotypes of adenylate kinase, AK-1, AK2-1, and AK-2, have been identified in the population and are directed by two common autosomal alleles AK1 and AK2 . Several other less common variants have also been reported .
