Population Data on the X Chromosome Short Tandem Repeat Locus HumHPRTB in Two Regions of Germany
This report contains the results of two population studies on the X chromosome STR HumHPRTB carried out in a Northern and a Southern region of Germany. The numbers of unrelated individuals were 443 and 335, respectively. Eight alleles (alleles 9 to 16) were found. In female individuals 29 different genotypes were encountered. In German populations the HumHPRTB STR was characterized by the following data: PIC = 0.750; HET = 0.769; MEC = 0.556. Allele distribution met the Hardy-Weinberg expectations. The Northern and Southern populations did not show any significant differences.
