Abstract

The microsatellite tetrameric tandem repeat sequence in the 5’flanking region of the human ACTBP2 (SE33) locus (Polymeropoulos et al. 1982) was one of the first STRs evaluated for forensic applications. Because it is hibgly polimorphic, population studies in caucasians and forensic validation studies have recently been carried out (Polymeropoulos et al. 1992, Weigand et al. 1993).
