Eight enzyme gene markers were studied in a sample of Piaroa Indians of Venezuela. ADA, DIA, PGD and AK markers seemed to be non-polymorphic whereas the following markers were found to be polymorphic: ACP1, where the only common electrophoretic alleles present were ACP1*A and ACP1*B (.955); ESD (ESD*1 = .781); PGM1 (PGM1*1 = .736) for which the subtypes (PGM1*1S = .546; PGM1*1F = .190; PGM1*2S = .140; PGM1*2F = .124) were also tested, and GLO1 (GLO1*1 = .347). Some showed a certain heterogeneity in distribution within the Piaroa population. The Piaroa Indians turned out to be different from other ethnic groups living in the same territory.

Abstract

Eight enzyme gene markers were studied in a sample of Piaroa Indians of Venezuela. ADA, DIA, PGD and AK markers seemed to be non-polymorphic whereas the following markers were found to be polymorphic: ACP1, where the only common electrophoretic alleles present were ACP1*A and ACP1*B (.955); ESD (ESD*1 = .781); PGM1 (PGM1*1 = .736) for which the subtypes (PGM1*1S = .546; PGM1*1F = .190; PGM1*2S = .140; PGM1*2F = .124) were also tested, and GLO1 (GLO1*1 = .347). Some showed a certain heterogeneity in distribution within the Piaroa population. The Piaroa Indians turned out to be different from other ethnic groups living in the same territory.
