Background Androgen receptor [CAG] n microsatellite has been linked to human diseases. Methods Six non-human primates were genotyped for the [CAG] n microsatellite. Results Marmosets and macaques are monomorphic, while mangabeys, baboons, and chimpanzees are polymorphic. Conclusions Non-human primates that are polymorphic for the microsatellite are candidate animal models for CAG-related diseases.
