Development of the X-Linked Tetrameric Microsatellite Marker DXS9898 for Forensic Purposes



HumDXS9898 also known as CHLC·GATA 126G01 is a tetrameric microsatellite marker located at the Xq21.33 pericentromeric region. In kinship testing HumDXS9898 is suitable for concomitant use with HumHPRTB and HumDXS6807 which are separated from HumDXS9898 by genetic map distance of 150 and 80 cM, respectively. HumDXS9898 is closely linked to HumARA. In the German population, HumDXS9898 exhibits seven clearly distinguishable alleles ranging from 189 to 214 basepairs in size. Deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium could not be detected. The observed heterozygosity was 0.75 for females and the mean exclusion probability was 0.73 for female children. Mutations were not found in the present material.
