The five X-chromosomal short tandem repeats (STRs) GATA172D05, HPRTB, DXS8377, DXS101 and HumARA were analyzed in 150 males and 150 females from Korea. Markers were amplified in a quadruplex and a monoplex PCR reaction with fluorescently labeled primers. For accurate and reproducible STR typing, sequenced allelic ladders were constructed and a Genotyper macro was programmed. Some differences were found on comparing the allele frequencies of Koreans with those of other populations in DXS8377, DXS101 and HumARA. The forensic efficiency parameters showed that the five X-linked STRs are highly informative for forensic application in Koreans.
