Forensic Sci Int. 2005 Mar 10;148(2-3):219-20. doi: 10.1016/j.forsciint.2004.04.069.


This paper presents sequence and population genetic data of the X-linked microsatellite marker DXS6801 (GDB:G00-365-276) which is a tetranucleotide repeat polymorphism representing eight alleles 109-141 bp in length. Data were obtained from a sample of 1146 unrelated German individuals. DXS6801 is located 99.7 cM from Xptel, nearby DXS6809 [Int. J. Legal Med. 117 (2003) 241] and DXS6789 [Forensic Sci. Int. 119 (2001) 42] in Xq21. The new marker could be added to the panel of ChrX STRs, especially usable as a part of the Xq21 linkage group.
