Sexing of human and other primate DNA.

We present a rapid and simple method for the sexing of human and other primate DNA. Homologous introns from the X- and Y-linked zinc finger protein genes (ZFX and ZFY) are PCR amplified with one primer pair. An Alu element insertion in the ZFX intron results in a size difference in the amplicons which is resolved by agarose gel electrophoresis.[1]
