DNA markers on the X-chromosome (ChrX) have been shown to be powerful tools for solving complex relationship cases .
The ChrX contains four linkage groups located at Xp22.2, Xq12, Xq26, and Xq28 that can provide independent genotype information. At present, it is proposed that it is preferable to use clusters to define haplotypes in forensic practice .
The X-Decaplex (DXS8378, DXS9902, DXS7132, DXS9898, DXS6809, DXS6789, DXS7133, GATA172D05, GATA31E08, and DXS7423) has been used by the GHEP-ISFG to make several studies [3, 4] and to solve forensic cases.
The Investigator Argus X-12 kit (Qiagen) includes 12 X-STRs located in four different linkage groups (linkage group 1: DXS10148, DXS10135, DXS8378; linkage group 2: DXS7132, DXS10079, DXS10074; linkage group 3: DXS10103, HPRTB, DXS10101; linkage group 4: DXS10146, DXS10134, DXS7423).
The Investigator ArgusX-12 Kit is a multiplex application kit that amplifies 12X-chromosomal STR loci highly suited for paternity testing ,...
