Direct screening of a mitochindrial DNA deletion valuable for Ameridian evolutionary research [resumen]
Santos Pasamontes, María

A rapid, simple restriction isotyping method is described for the direct screening of a previously characterized Amerindian mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) marker ;onsisting of a 6-bp "Huetar" deletion. In a sample of 31 maternally non-related Chibchan Amerindian Bribri from Costa Rica, this deletion was present in 74%, arguing for the usefulness of this private polymorphism for Amerindian taxonomic research.
