Abstract

We found a novel polymorphic short tandem repeat (FUT2/01), 3.8 kb downstream of the coding region of FUT2. Seventeen length and 33 sequence variants were identified in 300 individuals representing three major human populations. Africans (Xhosa) and Europeans were characterized by high microvariation, and Japanese were characterized by a simple repeat structure. All exhibited high haplotype diversity.
