Abstract

Allele frequency distributions for 24 short tandem repeat (STR) loci were determined using the PowerPlexR Fusion System (Promega) in 407 Japanese samples. The most informative locus among the 22 STR loci, excluding Amelogenin and DYS391, was Penta E (power of discrimination (PD)=0.98), while the least informative was TPOX(PD=0.831). The 22 loci combined matching probability (MP) was calculated to be 4.13×10-26. These parameters indicated the usefulness of this 24 STR analysis in forensic personal identification and parentage testing among Japanese population.
