DXS8378, DXS7132, HPRTB, and DXS7423 microsatellite markers located in four different X-chromosomal linkage groups were studied in the Hungarian population. After genotyping unrelated men (219) and women (165), forensic efficiency parameters showing that the four X-linked short tandem repeats are informative for forensic applications were calculated. With fragment and sequence analysis, one microvariant allele (11.2) was identified in the HPRTB locus. A deviation from the Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium could not be detected. Investigations of 96 father-child meioses revealed one mutation in the DXS7132 locus. For comparison of 22 different populations, G-tests were carried out.
