The allele frequency distribution at the D1S80 locus (pMCT118) was analyzed in five Amerindian tribes from the Brazilian Amazon (Zoé, Awá-Guajá, Urubú-Kaapór, Katuena, and Xikrin of Bacajá) and was compared with distributions described for other worldwide populations. Nine different segregating alleles were identified in a sample of 139 individuals; alleles *18, *25, and *30 predominated in all tribes. Although the tribes are usually characterized by a low within-population diversity, they have… CONTINUE READING
