Population Genetics of Two Tetranucleotide Repeats (UGB and D3S1349): A Preliminary Study in Galicia, Spain
The polymorphism of two tetranucleotide repeats, UGB and D3S1349 in the population of Galicia, Spain was carried out. Up to 7 and 8 alleles respectively were found, which determine values of H = 0.820 and H = 0.808 for these two STRs. A non-isotopic technique using thin layer polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis followed by silver staining, for the screening of both systems, is presented and discussed. Formal genetic studies from 51 meioses are concordant with an autosomal co-dominant way of inheritance of these systems.
