Chinese Population Data in Beijing at 3 STR loci—CSF1PO, HUMTH01, and TPOX
An STR database was obtained from a sample of 164 unrelated Chinese in Beijing, China. The DNA was extracted using the Chelex extraction method (1). 2 ng target DNA was co-amplified using the commercial typing kit, Promega Geneprint™. STR Multiplex System—CSF1PO, TPOX, TH01, according to the manufacturer's instructions. PAGE and silver staining for the STRs were performed according to the methods described in the Promega “GenePrint™ STR Multiplex System—CSF1PO, TPOX, TH01” Manual. Assignment of alleles was made by visual comparison between the commercially supplied reference allelic ladders and the amplified samples at the corresponding locus. Statistical analysis was performed. No deviations from equilibrium were observed. The power of discrimination ranges from 0.820 to 0.891 and the combined power for the 3 loci is 0.9966.
