The use of short tandem repeat (STR) multiplexes with the incorporated gender marker amelogenin is now common practice in forensic laboratories. The amelogenin locus is encoded by two single copy genes located on Xp22.1-Xp22.3 (AMELX) and Yp11.2 (AMELY). There are differences in size and sequence between AMELX and AMELY that can be used for sex-typing(More)
We experienced a difficult case of TH01 typing. Instability of TH01 allele 9.3 was observed using GenePrint STR System TH01. Allele dropout was observed when an AmpFlSTR Profiler Kit was subsequently used for confirmation of the TH01 type. Use of the PowerPlex 16 System made it possible to detect allele 9.3. As a result of sequencing, a single point(More)
