Arab Population Data on the PCR-based Loci: HLA-DQA1, LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8, Gc, and D1S80

Abstract

Allele and genotype frequencies for seven polymerase chain reaction (PCR)-based DNA genetic markers were determined in an Arab sample population. The loci analyzed were HLA-DQA1, LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8, Gc and D1S80. Results were obtained from the first six loci using the AmpliType HLA-DQ alpha DNA and AmpliType PM PCR Amplification and Typing Kits. The VNTR locus D1S80 PCR product was analyzed by polyacrylamide electrophoresis and silver staining. All loci meet Hardy-Weinberg expectations. The frequency data can be used in forensic analyses and paternity tests to estimate the frequency of a DNA profile in the Arab population.
