    Abstract

    A population study on the distribution of alleles for the D1S80 locus (pMCT118) was carried out on 141 unrelated and healthy blood donors from the province of Messina (Eastern Sicily). Forty-two different genotypes and 16 different alleles were observed and two of these were found to be relatively common in the sample. Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium was tested using a preliminary simple chi-square method by binning in five groups and an exact test. The results demonstrated that the population was in HWE for both tests. A comparison of our data with other population studies showed that the distributions of alleles were similar.
