Akhmetova, V.L., Zhukova, O.V., Shneider, Y.V., Shil’nikova, I.N., Borinskaya, S.A., Marusin, A.V., Spiridonova, M.G., Simonova, K.V., Khitrinskaya, I.Y., Radzhabov, M.O., Romanov, A.G., Shtygasheva, O.V., Koshel, S.M., Balanovskaya, E.V., Rybakova, A.V., Khusnutdinova, E.K., Puzyrev, V.P. and Yankovsky, N.K.

Notes: The authors determined the degree of polymorphism and population diversity of STR loci in 1,156 Russian individuals using the PowerPlex® 16 System. They examined populations of six cities and 11 ethnic groups in the Russian Federation and reported the levels of intra- and interpopulation genetic differentiation and genetic relations between populations. There were significant differences between Russian populations and the U.S. reference database that was used in forensic medical examinations in Russia. The authors created a database of allele frequencies for 15 STR loci in Russian populations for DNA identification and forensic medical examination. (4150)

Croat. Med. J. 48, 513–519. DNA identification of skeletal remains from the World War II mass graves uncovered in Slovenia. 2007

Marjanovic, D., Durmic-Pasic, A., Bakal, N., Haveric, S., Kalamujic, B., Kovacevic, L., Ramic, J., Pojskic, N., Skaro, V., Projic, P., Bajrovic, K., Hadziselimovic, R., Drobnic, K., Huffine, E., Davoren, J. and Primorac, D.

Notes: The authors used the PowerPlex® 16 System to perform DNA typing of 27 sets of World War II skeletal remains found in two mass graves in Slovenia. Each bone sample was sanded to remove potential contaminants from exterior surfaces, then washed and air-dried. The same procedure was used to process teeth, except that the teeth were not sanded. DNA was isolated from the bone powder using organic extraction, then quantified. DNA was amplified using the PowerPlex® 16 System as per the manufacturer's recommendations; for samples with small amounts of DNA, the number of cycles was increased to 32 and the elongation time extended to 90 seconds. Fifteen sets of remains yielded full profiles, and 12 sets yielded partial profiles, with the least successful profile including 13 loci. DNA was also extracted and amplified from 69 reference buccal swab samples from potential relatives. (3817)

Forensic Sci. Int. 48, 478–85. Highly effective DNA extraction method for nuclear short tandem repeat testing of skeletal remains from mass graves. 2007

Davoren, J., Vanek, D., Konjhodzic, R., Crews, J., Huffine, E. and Parsons, T.J.

Notes: The authors compared two DNA extraction methods: the International Commission on Missing Persons silica method and the standard phenol:chloroform method to determine the preferred method for extraction of DNA from skeletal remains. The efficacy of DNA extraction was measured by real-time PCR to quantify DNA and to check for the presence of PCR inhibitors, and by amplification with the PowerPlex® 16 System. DNA was extracted from processed bone powder, and 10µl of the final extract was amplified using the PowerPlex® 16 System and GeneAmp® PCR System 9700 according to the manufacturer's recommendations, except that the extension time was doubled from 30 seconds to 60 seconds for the first 10 cycles and from 45 seconds to 90 seconds for the next 22 cycles. Amplified products were detected using the ABI PRISM® 3100 Genetic Analyzer. The authors concluded that the silica-based method gave better results in autosomal STR typing than the organic extraction method. (3818)

Int. J. Legal Med. 121, 297–301. Identification and sequence analysis of discordant phenotypes between AmpFlSTR SGM Plus™ and PowerPlex® 16. 2007

Vanderheyden, N., Mai, A., Gilissen, A., Cassiman, J.J. and Decorte, R.

Notes: The authors analyzed duplicate buccal swabs and observed eight disconcordant phenotypes with SGM Plus™ (2 at TH01, 4 at vWA and 2 at D18S51) and one disconcordant phenotype (at D18S51) with PowerPlex® 16 out of a total of 1,377 individuals. In each case, the discrepancy was due to allele dropout of the second allele in a heterozygous genotype. DNA sequencing using primers that encompass the locus-specific STR primers was performed to characterize the mutations responsible for allele dropout for each locus. (3769)

Narkuti, V., Vellanki, R.N., Gandhi, K.P., Doddapaneni, K.K., Yelavarthi, P.D. and Mangamoori, L.N.

Notes: The authors describe two cases of paternity dispute, one with a maternally mismatched allele at the D18S51 locus and a second with a paternally mismatched D18S51 allele. Seventeen autosomal STR loci were analyzed using the PowerPlex® 16 System and AmpFlSTR® Identifiler® kit. Amplifications were performed using a GeneAmp® PCR System 9700, and amplification products were detected using an ABI PRISM® 310 Genetic Analyzer. Y-STR loci and mitochondrial DNA hypervariable regions HV1 and HV2 were also examined. Sequence analysis of the D18S51 locus revealed an expansion of the maternal allele by one repeat unit in one case and an expansion of the paternal allele by two repeat units in the second case.
