STR analysis transfected cells

... pcnda Her2 vector ( I'll call these MCF7-Her2) and now just need to compare my derived cell line with the parent MCF-7 cells by microsatellite STR analysis. Since it is just an addition of one gene, should I expect the parental cell line and derived cell line to have the same STR profile?

Median joining network analysis

A similar question as before. What is the most widely used Mac program for median joining network programs? The number of my samples are limited so do you think this is a good method to use to analyse my data or do you suggest another program for low samples numbers? Thanks a lot.

Re: microsatellite instability

OK, another question: I can see how insertion/deletion can be detected by fragment analysis, but incorporation of a wrong nucleotide wouldn't cause change in the length of amplicon, so can that also be detected by fragment analysis?
