    Abstract

    Serum transferrin (TF) subtypes were also found in dental pulps by isoelectric focusing and immunoblotting. The types observed in dental pulps completely agreed with those in serum samples from the same individuals. The allele frequencies in 105 samples were TF*C1 = 0.757 and TF*C2 = 0.243. Reliable subtyping was possible for 4 weeks following extraction of the teeth. The TF system can provide a useful genetic marker for the medicolegal individualization of teeth.
