Abstract

The short tandem repeat (STR) systems HumTHOI and Hum VWA were used for PCR typing of two Caucasian subpopulations, one living in the Black sea area (northern Turkey), the other being a subpopulation from eastern Anatolia (eastern Turkey). The allele frequency data were compared with a turkish subpopulation from Adana area (southern Turkey) and a group of Turks living in Brussels (Belgium). The HumTHOI data showed a significant difference in the Black Sea region compared to the 3 other groups while the subpopulation from the eastern Anatolia showed significant differences in Hum VWA system.
