Seventeen population groups within the Russian Federation were characterized for the first time using a panel of 15 genetic markers that are used for DNA identification and in forensic medical examinations. The degree of polymorphism and population diversity of microsatellite loci within the Power Plex system (Promega) in Russian populations; the(More)
Analysis of the genome-specific linkage disequilibrium patterns in certain populations is a highly promising approach to the identification of functional variants that underlie susceptibility to complex diseases. In the present study, the linkage disequilibrium patterns of the methylenetetrahydrofolate reductase gene (MTHFR) were examined in a group of(More)
Type-I recessive congenital methemoglobinemia (RCM) is a rare autosomal disease characterized by a deficiency of the soluble form of nicotineamide adenine dinucleotide (NADH)-cytochrome b5 reductase (b5R) and clinically manifests as cyanosis of skin and mucous membranes. In the Russian Federation, type-I RCM is widely disturbed in Yakutia due to the local(More)
The first estimation of the heterozygous carrier rates for the SMN1 gene deletions and SMN2 gene duplications in populations of Russia has been performed. The numbers of SMN gene copies have been deter-mined in samples from Chuvash and Udmurt populations, as well the population of the Moscow region, by means of multiplex ligation-dependent probe(More)
