*Y-GATA-H4 allele nomenclature differences exist in the literature.

Gonzalez-Neira et al. (2001) Forensic Sci. Int. 122:19-26 describes the H4 Y STR marker with allele ranges of 26-30 and uses the following for their repeat designation: (ATAG)4ct(ATAG)3(GTAG)3(ATAG)naatggatagattaa(GATG)2a(ATAG)4atac(ATAG)2 

Butler et al. (2002) Forensic Sci. Int. 129:10-24 describes a primer pair (set 3 shown above) that is internal to some of the repeats. The core repeat was designated TAGA and the nomenclature only uses the variable repeat (alleles 8-13).
