Abstract

Objective: To determine the heterozygosity and polymorphism information content of 139 microsatellite loci in Han population. Methods: Multiplex approach was used to analyze the 139 loci. The amplified fragments were subjected to electrophoresis in PAGE gel and analyzed with Genescan(TM) and Genotyper(TM). Results: The heterozygosities are between 0.35 to 0.89, with the heterozygosites of 88% loci >0.60. PICs are in the range of 0.32 and 0.88, with PICs of 95% loci> 0.50. Conclusion: The polymorphism information content of microsatellite loci is very high and their distribution varies in different races and populations.
