    Alleles at the D7S820 STR locus have 6-14 different numbers of a four-nucleotide (GATA) repeat motif arranged in tandem. The D7S820 tri-allelic pattern is rare and has not been reported in the Chinese population. In this study we report a three-banded pattern at the D7S820 locus observed in a...

    Mouse expanded simple tandem repeats (ESTRs) provide highly informative loci for analyzing spontaneous and induced germline mutation. We have conducted an extensive sequence database search and identified 17 new members of the highly unstable rodent-specific ESTR family called MMS10. This family...

    To study the molecular genetic relationships and correlate them with the taxonomy within the complex of lacertid lizards of the genus Darevskia, the locus analysis of the copies of the SINE-type repeat (Squam1) specific for the order Squamata was used. It was demonstrated that one of the loci...

    Microsatellites (MSs) are short tandem DNA repeats with the repetitive motif of two to six nucleotides, forming tracts up to hundreds of nucleotides long. Notwithstanding the active use of MSs in genetic studies of various biological problems, the reasons for their wide occurrence in the genome,...

    The use of amelogenin locus typing as a gender marker incorporated in short tandem repeat (STR) multiplexes is a common practice in sex typing. Mutations in the X or Y homologue of the amelogenin gene can be misleading and result in serious mistakes in forensic applications and prenatal...

    Mutations in the von Hippel-Lindau (VHL) gene are frequently detected in human sporadic renal cell carcinoma (RCC). We analysed 102 Swedish RCCs for VHL mutations by PCR–SSCP and sequencing. In 47 patients (46.1%), 70 different mutations were found, and most of them represented novel...

    Short tandem repeat (STR) multiplexes with the amelogenin (AMEL) gene as a gender marker have been used as a routine tool of forensic DNA analysis. It has been reported that AMEL-based gender detection could misidentify a known male as a female due to the dropout of amelogenin Y (AMELY) allele....

  • Short tandem repeat polymorphism evolution in humans. Calafell, F; Shuster, A; Speed, W C; Kidd, J R; Kidd, K K // European Journal of Human Genetics;Jan1998, Vol. 6 Issue 1, p38 

    Forty-five dinucleotide short tandem repeat polymorphisms were typed in ten large samples of a globally distributed set of populations. Although these markers had been selected for high heterozygosity in European populations, we found them to be sufficiently informative for linkage analysis in...
