190 Punjabis (Hindus and Sikhs) of Chandigarh and 152 Hindus of Jodhpur (Rajasthan) were examined for six genetic markers, four of which (APO C-II, C6, C7 and FXIIIA) were not studied before in Asiatic Indians. For APO C-II and C7 only the common phenotype was found in a total of 229 and 99 subjects, respectively. For the remaining four markers the two samples were pooled since the gene frequency estimates were not significantly different: FXIIIA*2 = 0.205 +/- 0.016; C6*B = 0.366 +/- 0.037; PGM1*2 = 0.247 +/- 0.017; PGD*C = 0.041 +/- 0.008. These data may contribute to evaluate the extent of the Mongoloid genetic admixture into the Caucasoid gene pool of the Punjab and Rajasthan Hindu population.
