X-linked microsatellites in two Northern Spain populations

Forensic Sci Int. 2004 Oct 4;145(1):57-9. doi: 10.1016/j.forsciint.2004.02.025.


The X-chromosomal microsatellites HPRTB, DXS101, ARA, DXS7423, and DXS8377 were analysed by a pentaplex PCR in an expanded population sample from Cantabria and an independent sample of unrelated individuals from the Basque Country. Allele frequencies showed similar distributions, but minor variations were found for some loci.
