Allelic frequencies for 12 short tandem repeats (STRs) (F13A01, F13B, FESFPS, LPL, CSF1PO, TPOX, TH01, vWA, D16S539, D7S820, D13S317 and D5S818) were estimated, also as forensic parameters, from a sample of 916 unrelated Brazilian subjects classified into four ethnic groups: European-derived, African-derived, Brazilian Mulattos and Asian-derived.

    ABSTRACT: THE BRAZILIAN POPULATION WAS FORMED BY EXTENSIVE ADMIXTURE OF THREE DIFFERENT ANCESTRAL ROOTS: Amerindians, Europeans and Africans. Our previous work has shown that at an individual level, ancestry, as estimated using molecular markers, was a poor predictor of color in Brazilians. We now investigate if SNPs known to be associated with human skin pigmentation can be used to predict color in Brazilians. For that, we studied the association of fifteen SNPs, previously known to be linked with skin color, in 243 unrelated Brazilian individuals self-identified as White, Browns or Blacks from Rio de Janeiro and 212 unrelated Brazilian individuals self-identified as White or Blacks from São Paulo. The significance of association of SNP genotypes with self-assessed color was evaluated using partial regression analysis. After controlling for ancestry estimates as covariates, only four SNPs remained significantly associated with skin pigmentation: rs1426654 and rs2555364 within SLC24A5, rs16891982 at SLC45A2 and rs1042602 at TYR. These loci are known to be involved in melanin synthesis or transport of melanosomes. We found that neither genotypes of these SNPs, nor their combination with biogeographical ancestry in principal component analysis, could predict self-assessed color in Brazilians at an individual level. However, significant correlations did emerge at group level, demonstrating that even though elements other than skin, eye and hair pigmentation do influence self-assessed color in Brazilians, the sociological act of self-classification is still substantially dependent of genotype at these four SNPs.

    ABSTRACT: Allelic frequencies for 19 STR loci (F13B, TPOX, D3S1358, FGA, CSF1PO, D5S818, F13A01, D7S820, D8S1179, D10S1237, TH01, VWA, D13S317, FESFPS, Penta E, D16S539, D18S51, D19S253, and D21S11) were obtained from an average of 13,000 unrelated Brazilian adults undergoing parentage testing. D10S1237 is a tetranucleotide repeat locus shown to be useful for forensic and paternity studies. Null allele frequencies and mutation rates were ascertained from this population sample.
