Spanish population data on 7 tetrameric short tandem repeat loci.

Author information

Instituto Nacional de Toxicología, Sección de Biología, Madrid, Spain.


Allele and genotype frequencies for 7 tetrameric short tandem repeat loci were determined in a Spanish population sample (N = 186-244) using PCR and subsequent analysis of the PCR products by denaturing polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis followed by silver staining. The loci were HUMFES/FPS, HUMVWA, HUMTHO1, HUMF13B, HUMCSF1PO, HUMF13A1 and HUMTPOX and all loci met Hardy-Weinberg expectations. In addition, little evidence was found for association of alleles among the 7 loci. Thus the allele frequency data can be used in identity testing to estimate the frequency of a multiple PCR-based DNA profile in the Spanish population.
