Genetic polymorphisms of 17 Y-STRs haplotypes in Tibetan ethnic minority group of China

Abstract:

Haplotypes and allele frequencies for the 17 Y-chromosomal STRs loci, namely DYS456, DYS389I, DYS390, DYS389II, DYS458, DYS19, DYS385a,b, DYS393, DYS391, DYS439, DYS635, DYS392, Y GATA H4, DYS437, DYS438, DYS448 were determined in a population sample of 112 healthy unrelated autochthonous Tibetan ethnic male individuals from Tibet of China. No shared haplotypes were observed. The gene diversity values for the Y-STRs loci ranged from 0.2052(DYS391) to 0.9301(DYS385a,b). The results demonstrate that these loci will be very useful for human identification in forensic cases and paternity tests in Tibetan population of China.
