Hæmoglobin E and the Diego Blood Group Antigen in Sarawak and Burma

Abstract

A CONSIDERABLE number of simple genetical characters—blood groups and hæmoglobins—are known which distinguish between negroids and caucasoids, but very few have been found which are characteristic of mongoloids. The genes for the Dieg;o (Dia) blood-group antigen and for hæmoglobin E seem, however, to fall into the latter category.
