Starch-gel electrophoresis of plasina reveals two mnutually exclusive forms of alkaline phosphatase. Analysis of the plasma of 931 birds from 96 sib families of two inbred lines through two generations shows that the faster-moving isozymne is determined by an autosomal gene Ap2 which is completely dominant to its allele Ap4 determining the slower form.
