Nine non-combined DNA index system tetranucleotide short tandem repeat (STR) loci D2S1772, D6S1043, D7S3048, D8S1132, D11S2368, D12S391, D13S325, D18S1364, and GATA198B05 were amplified in a multiplex polymerase chain reaction system. The distribution of alleles of the nine STRs was reported from a Chinese Han population in Guangdong Province, Southern(More)
We investigated the polymorphism of five X-chromosomal short tandem repeat markers (ChrX STRs) loci (DXS7132, DXS981, DXS6803, DXS6809, and DXS6789) and their value for forensic applications. A fluorescent multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) for amplifying five ChrX STRs loci in the same PCR reaction was set up. A total of 827 unrelated individuals of(More)
Population genetic data and forensic statistics of 22 autosomal short tandem repeat (STR) loci (D1S1656, D2S1338, D3S3045, D4S2366, D5S2500, D6S477, D7S3048, D8S1132, D9S925, D10S1435, D11S2368, D12S391, D13S325, D14S608, D15S659, D16S539, D17S1290, D18S535, D19S253, D20S470, D21S1270 and GATA198B05) were determined for a sample of 515 unrelated individuals(More)
Recombination fractions between forensic STRs can be extrapolated from the International HapMap Project, but the concordance between recombination fractions predicated from genetic maps and derived from observation of STR transmissions in families is still ambiguous for autosomal STRs because of limited family studies. Therefore, the main goal of this study(More)
This study investigated the role of dopamine (DA) receptors in area CA1 of the hippocampus in modulating the effects of glucocorticoids on the contextual fear memory consolidation. Adult male rats were given systemic injections of corticosterone (CORT; 3mg/kg) immediately after training in a contextual fear conditioning (CFC) task and the percentage of time(More)
The aim of this study is to develop a new multiplex PCR system that simultaneously amplifies the 15 X-chromosome short tandem repeats (X-STRs) loci in the same PCR reaction, and to obtain the 15 X-STR loci database in three nationality populations from China. This multiplex system includes DXS7133, DXS6801, DXS981, DXS6809, DXS7424, DXS6789, DXS9898,(More)
To develop a multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) system with 12 X-chromosomal short-tandem repeat (X-STR) loci and to investigate their polymorphism and linkage and/or independence, the 12 loci (DXS6807, DXS8378, DXS9902, DXS6800, DXS6803, DXS6799, DXS6804, GATA172D05, DXS6854, HPRTB, DXS8377, and DXS7423) were simultaneously analyzed in 1,005(More)
Short tandem repeat (STR) analysis is a primary tool in forensic casework. Population data and mutation rates of STRs are very important for paternity testing and forensic genetics. However, the population data and mutation rates of STRs in Han nationality based on large samples have still not been fully described in China. In this study, the allelic(More)
Retinoblastoma (RB) is an intraocular cancer that affects young children. There is an ongoing effort to find new agents for RB management that are effective, specific and with few side-effects. In the present study, we tested artesunate (ART), a synthetic derivative from the herbal drug artemisinin, used in the clinic for the treatment of malaria. We(More)
This study is to develop a new multiplex polymerase chain reaction (PCR) system that simultaneously amplifies the nine X-chromosome short tandem repeats loci in the same PCR reaction, and to explore their polymorphism and mutation rate among three nationality populations from China. These loci included DXS6854, DXS9902, DXS6809, GATA172D05, HPRTB, DXS7423,(More)
