Abstract

A total of 38 autosomal Short Tandem Repeat (STR) loci (i.e., D5S818, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1P0, D2S1338, D3S1358, vWA, D8S1179, D16S539, Penta E, TPOX, TH01, D19S433, D18S51, FGA, D6S1043, D13S317, D12S391, D6S474, D12ATA63, D22S1045, D10S1248, D1S1677, D11S4463, D1S1627, D3S4529, D2S441, D6S1017, D4S2408, D17S1301, D1GATA113, D18S853, D20S482, D14S1434, D9S1122, D2S1776, D10S1435, D5S2500) were analyzed in the She population from Fujian Province of China with 154 unrelated individuals. The results show these 38 STR loci have high or medium power of discrimination and probabilities of exclusion. The Hardy-Weinberg Equilibrium of each locus and Linkage Disequilibrium among these loci were tested. The genetic distances (i.e., Fst) among the She population and other Chinese populations were estimated. In conclusion, these loci are very useful for forensic applications, especially kinship analysis, in the She population of this region.
