Allele frequency distributions for the D1S80 (MCT118) and HLA DQα loci were determined in a Chinese population sample using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR). A total of 25 alleles and 100 phenotypes were observed for D 1 S80. The frequency of allele 18 was higher than allele 24 only in this Chinese population when compared to other reported populations. A total of 6 alleles and 21 possible phenotypes were observed for HLA DQα. The power of discrimination was 0.97 and 0.93 for D1S80 and HLA DQα, respectively.
