The sequence of the first hypervariable segment (HVS-I) of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was determined in 251 individuals from three eastern Slavonic populations, two Russian and one Belorussian. Within HVS-I, 78 polymorphic positions were revealed. Within-population diversity of HVS-I varies slightly among three samples; its estimates do not differ strongly(More)
A set of 18 Y-chromosomal microsatellite loci was analysed in 568 males from Poland, Slovakia and three regions of Belarus. The results were compared to data available for 2,937 Y chromosome samples from 20 other Slavic populations. Lack of relationship between linguistic, geographic and historical relations between Slavic populations and Y-short tandem(More)
Four different polymorphisms in the human p53 gene (a 16-bp duplication in intron 3, and three RFLPs: for Bsh1236I at codon 72, for MspI in intron 6 and for BamHI in the 3′ flanking region) and extended haplotypes were studied in nine geographically diverse populations from Russia and Belarus. The Yakuts differed from all other populations, as they had a(More)
BACKGROUND It has been hypothesized that, whereas many loci are used to generate phylogenetic relationships, the utilization of those that yield the most information could increase the accuracy of any multilocus phylogenetic reconstruction. Among these is the D1S80 hypervariable minisatellite region, which has been shown to be highly polymorphic globally,(More)
Allelic polymorphism of five microsatellite loci of the human Y chromosome (DYS19, DYS390, DYS391, DYS392, and DYS393) was analyzed in samples of male populations from Ukraine, Russia, and Belarus (152 subjects in total). The allelic diversity indices (D g) were determined for all loci; they varied from 0.23 to 0.72. The mean values of this parameter in the(More)
Allele frequencies of 15 short tandem repeat loci included in the AmpFlSTR Identifiler kit (Applied Biosystems) were obtained from a sample set of unrelated individuals living in Belarus (n=176). For all loci, no deviation from Hardy-Weinberg equilibrium was found. Results were compared with data available for the Belarusian minority residing in(More)
OBJECTIVE To describe and compare the 3' apolipoprotein (Apo) B minisatellite allele frequency distributions of Eastern Slavonic populations and their Uralic, Altaic, and Caucasian speaking neighbors. METHODS Healthy individuals of 10 populations among Russians, Byelorussians, Komis and Bashkirs were studied for variable number tandem repeats (VNTRs) in(More)
The purpose of this study was to evaluate the homogeneity of Polish populations with respect to STRs chosen as core markers of the Polish Forensic National DNA Intelligence Database, and to provide reference allele frequencies and to explore the genetic interrelationship between Poland and neighboring countries. The allele frequency distribution of 10 STRs(More)
This work develops a detailed STR database from 11 population samples and samples from paternity analyses from different districts of Belarus. The combined data on 2020 individuals form a total database for the country, with the exclusion power of 99.987% based on 11 STR loci. Possible differentiation in allele frequencies between population samples, small(More)
