Sažetak

Aim To find an association between Y chromosome polymorphisms
and some ethnic groups.
Methods Short tandem repeats (STR) and single-nucleotide
polymorphisms (SNP) on the Y chromosome were
typed in 311 unrelated men from four different ethnic
groups – Italians from northern Italy, Albanians, Africans
from the Maghreb region, and Indo-Pakistanis, using the
AmpFlSTR® Yfiler PCR Amplification Kit and the SNaPshot
Multiplex Kit.
Results STRs analysis found 299 different haplotypes and
SNPs analysis 11 different haplogroups. Haplotypes and
haplogroups were analyzed and compared between different
ethnic groups. Significant differences were found
among all the population groups, except between Italians
and Indo-Pakistanis and between Albanians and Indo-Pakistanis.
Conclusions Typing both STRs and SNPs on the Y chromosome
could become useful in determining ethnic origin of
a potential suspect
