is a highly polymorphic protein. Genotyping
is usually done by isoelectric focusing. I would like to know,
if there is a * PCR based* method to demonstrate HP alleles.
It should be possible as the underlying DNA variations are known.
(The Genome Data Base -GDB- lists HP variants that are detected
by Southern blotting and HP probe hybridization )
Thank you very much for helpful hints!
