Homozygous subjects demonstrate analbuminemia, whereas heterozygotes have intermediate concentrations of serum albumin (2, 3).
It is not surprising that the Hardy-Weinberg test for deficiency of heterozygotes was significant at the same loci (AaH11 and AaC3) that had significant P-values for disequilibrium of Hardy-Weinberg in the small, spatially compressed SSW.
This study identified a small group of patients without known etiology for altered liver function tests who were heterozygote for H63D, raising the possibility that individuals who are heterozygotes could develop phenotypic hemochromatosis even in the setting of H63D mutations.
