This paper reports the sequences of 22 alleles identified at the HumFGA (human alpha fibrinogen) short tandem repeat locus in the British Caucasian and AfroCaribbean populations. Alleles at the lower end of the observed size range were found to increase in size by 4-bp increments with the repeat unit following the pattern TC(TCTT)n. However, 5 alleles were identified that differed in size by 2 by from the 4 by increment as a result of the deletion of a TC dinucleotide, or the addition of a TT… CONTINUE READING
