Abstract

MCT118 (D1S80) locus is widely used for forensic DNA typing. Many population studies have been reported by using allelic ladder marker. However, the whole DNA sequences of each allele of MCT118 locus have not been reported. In this report the whole DNA sequence of MCT118 locus including both flanking regions and repeat regions has been revealed and the difference between different alleles has been analyzed.
