A short tandem repeat (STR) in the intron 1a of paternally imprinted gene, KCNQ1, is evaluated as a new probe for use in parentally imprinting allele (PIA) typing. This typing can determine the inheritance of one allele from father by the methylation difference. Allelic and genotypic frequencies of the STR were determined using samples from 175 unrelated Japanese and 170 unrelated Germans. The polymorphism information contents were 0.652 and 0.634 for the Japanese and the Germans, respectively… CONTINUE READING
