    Abstract

    Evidence of variations in human red cell esterase was first presented by Tashian [1–3]. With starch gel, borate buffer electrophoresis followed by azo-dye-coupled staining procedures, zones of esterase activity were classified as A1, A2, A3, B, and C. Population variants of these esterase enzymes have proven to be either exceedingly rare or nonexistent and consequently have no forensic application.
