Recently, two molecular weight forms of Histidine-rich Glycoprotein have been described which explain 59% of the variation in plasma HRG levels. Here, we demonstrate that this can partly be ascribed to a difference in specificity of the immuno assay for HRG towards the two alleles of the polymorphism.
