Inherited albumin variants

types of human serum albumin, distinguished by characteristic mobility patterns on electrophoresis; each type is due to a mutation of a gene controlling albumin synthesis; the mutant genes are codominant with the normal gene for albumin a, and the group forms a system of genetic polymorphism; types include: albumin b (slow), found occasionally in persons of European ancestry; albumin Ghent (fast), found first at Ghent, Belgium; albumin Mexico (slow), found in indians of Mexico and the southwestern united States; albumin Naskapi (fast), found in the Naskapi and other indians of northern North America; and albumin Reading (fast), found first at Reading, England.
