Abstract

The male-specific, human Y-chromosomal short tandem repeats (Y-STRs) are very useful in forensic analysis. The authors report a sexual crime case in which the direct Y-STR haplotype analysis of several mixtures of various bodily fluids including semen was very effective for identifying the perpetrator of the crime. The typing of three Y-STRs (DYS19, DYS389II, and DYS390) could be detected from the mixed DNA of sperm and female cells in the victim's vagina, vaginal orifice, and anus. These haplotypes originated from one man and matched those of the suspect. Accordingly, the combination of direct extraction of DNA and Y-STR haplotype analysis is considered to be very useful for mixtures of bodily fluids, including semen or other male cells.
