    Abstract

    Allele and genotype frequencies of four short tandem-repeat loci were determined in a population sample from the North of Portugal using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). After denaturing PAGE, 6 alleles were identified for HUMTH01 (n = 419), 9 alleles for HUMVWA31A (n = 376), 12 alleles for HUMF13A1 (n = 232), and 5 alleles for HUMFES/FPS (n = 409). No deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium was found. The allele frequencies observed are similar to those of the European populations compared. The combined power of discrimination is 0.999.
