    Abstract

    A single locus system of 6 microsatellite markers was evaluated for paternity testing. A nonradioactive method based on peroxidase labeling of a DNA probe was used to estimate the allele frequency of markers D1S216, D3S1217, D7S480, D9S157, D13S153, and D16S422 by genotyping 1134–1698 chromosomes. The number of detected alleles were 22, 15, 23, 10, 16, and 19, respectively, and the allele frequency varied from 0.001 to 0.317. The genotype of 87 families, consisting of mother, father, and child was determined. The probability that a random individual will give a positive paternity was evaluated. We conclude that the markers can be reliably typed and give sufficient and reliable information for paternity testing.
