Population Genetic Study of the Simultaneously Amplified Loci HLA DQA1, LDLR, GYPA, HBGG, D7S8, and GC in a German Population Sample
A population genetic study of the HLA DQA1 and the “Polymarker” loci LDLR, GYPA, HBG, D7S8, and GC has been performed in a German Caucasian population (Frankfurt am Main area).
All loci are in Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium and no unexpected association of loci has been observed. The data of the allele distributions are similar to those of other Caucasian populations. All six loci together have a power of discrimination (PD) of 0.9996 and an exclusion chance in paternity testing of 0.81.
