Analysis of the VNTR Locus DXS52 by the Amp-FLP Technique
The locus DXS52 is useful genetic marker system for forensic analysis. It consists of a variable number of tandem repeats (VNTR) and can be analyzed by the Amp-FLP technique. As accurate data about the distribution of the alleles are among the most important prerequisites for the application in forensic biology, we studied the allele distribution of DXS52 locus in a Chinese population and applied the established technique to paternity testing.
