HAPTOGLOBIN GENOTYPING

Haptoglobin (HP)

		   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!
