We investigated genetic polymorphism of 15 STR loci (D10S1248, D22S1045, D2S441, D1S1656, D12S391, D2S1338, D3S1358, D8S1179, D16S539, D18S51, D19S433, D21S11, FGA, TH01, vWA) included in the NGM amplification kit in a sample of 400 unrelated, adult individuals (189 females and 211 males) born in the Lodz region of central Poland. Genomic DNA was extracted(More)
Allele frequency data and forensic efficiency parameters for 15 STR loci: D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818, FGA were estimated from a sample of 600 unrelated individuals from the Pomorze Zachodnie (NW Poland). The combined MP and PE for all 15 loci are 3.9x10(-18) and 0.9999988,(More)
In physiological condition mammalian cells produce a small amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS) which influence biological processes. At high concentration ROS are the mediator of damage to lipids, protein and nucleic acids. Exposure to free radicals has led organisms to develop series of defense mechanism that can protect against oxidative stress. The(More)
The hair follicles of recipients of allogeneic hematopoietic SCT (HSCT) constitute the tissue with the greatest need for regeneration after high-dose chemotherapy. Previous studies have shown a lack of donor-derived DNA in the hair follicles of recipients. Therefore, we carried out a study to determine whether male donor-derived genetic material can be(More)
Allele frequency data and forensic efficiency parameters for 15 STR loci: D8S1179, D21S11, D7S820, CSF1PO, D3S1358, TH01, D13S317, D16S539, D2S1338, D19S433, vWA, TPOX, D18S51, D5S818, and FGA, were estimated from the sample of 1000 unrelated individuals from the Lodz region of Poland. The combined MP and PE for all 15 loci are 4.8 x 10(-18) and 0.9999989,(More)
Expecting a significant breakthrough in the diagnosis of complex disorders of neuropsychiatric background, intensive efforts are taking place to establish genetic markers correlated with these disorders. During the last decade, this research was focused on code regions connected with neurotransmission and metabolism of catecholamines. Nowadays big(More)
The aim of this study was to compare and select the optimal method of DNA isolation from blood, semen and saliva stains, as well as to determine appropriate conditions for employing amplification kits for identification of individual persons [brak w polskim tekście]. The materials analyzed in this study consisted of stains of blood, semen and saliva samples(More)
INTRODUCTION Bad quality and slender amount of the material at our disposal during identity examination and ever growing number of expired and difficult identity cases compelled us to examine: 1) amplification grade and amount of human DNA in degraded biological material originating from diverse environments and historical periods; 20 operating mode in case(More)
Allele frequency data for ten STR loci: D3S1358, vWA, D16S539, D2S1338, D8S1179, D21S11, D18S51, D19S433, TH01, FGA were estimated in a sample of 350 unrelated individuals in Central Poland population (Lodz region). The accordance with the Hardy and Weinberg equilibrium (HWE) for all investigated loci was proved. The allele distributions were compared to(More)
The most common cause of problems associated with analyzing DNA extracted from forensic samples is their high level of degradation. Such difficulties are caused by the fact that STR markers have too large amplicon sizes to be amplified in degraded DNA samples. Thus, it is necessary to employ more efficient markers for analyzing evidential samples. SNPs are(More)
