The correlation between isoprotein types of alpha-1-antitrypsin (PI) in blood and semen samples from the same individual was determined in 48 Japanese men by the combined technique of isoelectric focusing with immobilized pH gradients and immunoblotting. Five common PI types (M1, M1M2, M1M3, M2 and M2M3) were detected in the blood plasma samples. However, PI-specific bands in semen migrated more cathodally than those in plasma into a pI region of approximately 5.05, and about 17% of the semen samples could not be phenotyped: the rest were easily phenotyped and their PI types were found to correlate with the type found in the corresponding blood samples. PI typing could therefore provide an additional discriminant characteristic for the forensic examination of individualization from semen samples.
