A comparison of allelic frequencies of the E298D, G10-T, and intron 4 VNTR polymorphisms between CAD patients and controls is shown in Table 2.
The first clinical study conducted at the JGH on 19 male osteoporotic subjects had shown earlier that 16 out of 19 (84%) male subjects had at least one copy of the 252 bp allele in the VNTR region of their PTHrP gene.

Subsequently, the length of the in silico-determined repeats was subtracted from the fragment length of each respective VNTR locus generated in 8 independent capillary electrophoresis runs of strain EDL933 to determine the offset (primer plus VNTR-flanking regions).
Genotypic variation of MTBC strains at various geographic settings and significant associations between certain allelic variants at VNTR loci, MTBC lineages, and spoligotyping families have been reported (7,12-15).
VNTR markers have higher mutation rates than other genetic markers, which make them inappropriate for determining deep levels of evolutionary relatedness.
