Human red cell acid phosphatase (ACP1) is one of the best known of the forensically useful genetic polymorphisms. Two common alleles — ACP1*A and ACP1*B — are found in all major population groups. A third allele — ACP1*C — is common in Caucasians and a fourth — ACP1*R — is common in Blacks of African origin. A number of rare alleles have also been noted.
