    Abstract

    A recent publication [1] described the characterization of human hair using a technique dependent on starch gel electrophoresis of phosphoglucomutase (PGM) from hair root sheath cells. Similar, independent work has been reported elsewhere [2,3]. Phosphoglucomutase has three common phenotypes, PGM1 1, PGM1 2–1, and PGM1 2, observable by starch gel electrophoresis and hence typing of hair roots in this manner is a valuable aid to discriminating human hairs.
