Haplotype analysis of 17 Y-STR loci in a Japanese population

Haplotype analysis of 17 Y-STR loci in a Japanese population

Abstract:

We analyzed 17 Y-STR loci (DYS19, DYS389I, DYS389II, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, DYS393, DYS385a/b, DYS438, DYS439, DYS456, DYS458 and DYS464a/b/c/d) in 252 Japanese males using three multiplex PCR typing systems. Two variants were found at DYS385a/b. A total of 244 different haplotypes were observed, of which 239 were found in single individuals. The haplotype diversity for the 17 loci was 0.996.
