Abstract :

Objectives Human identification systems based on STRs are widely used in human population genetics and forensic analysis. This study aimed to validate the cross-reactivity of three widely known human-specific STR identification systems i.e. GlobalFiler[TM] PCR Amplification Kit, Investigator 24plex QS Kit, and PowerPlex[R] Fusion 6C in chimpanzee. Results The present study revealed the successful amplification of 18 loci using GlobalFiler[TM] PCR Amplification Kit, 18 loci using Investigator 24plex QS Kit, and 20 loci using PowerPlex[R] Fusion 6C system. The marker Amelogenin (AMEL) showed differential allele size between male and female revealing the gender identity of chimpanzees and thus validates their application concerning forensic examination, population estimation, and genetic analysis. Keywords: GlobalFiler[TM] PCR amplification kit, Investigator 24plex QS kit, PowerPlex[R] fusion 6C system, Chimpanzee, Human identification
