It is commonly thought that human genetic diversity in non-African populations was shaped primarily by an out-of-Africa dispersal 50-100 thousand yr ago (kya). Here, we present a study of 456 geographically diverse high-coverage Y chromosome sequences, including 299 newly reported samples. Applying ancient DNA calibration, we date the Y-chromosomal most(More)
High-coverage whole-genome sequence studies have so far focused on a limited number of geographically restricted populations, or been targeted at specific diseases, such as cancer. Nevertheless, the availability of high-resolution genomic data has led to the development of new methodologies for inferring population history and refuelled the debate on the(More)
Neurotransmitter serotonin (5-HT) is involved in the regulation of stress response. Tryptophan hydroxylase-2 (TPH2) is the key enzyme of serotonin (5-HT) synthesis in the brain. C1473G polymorphism in Tph2 gene is the main factor defining the enzyme activity in the brain of laboratory mice. The effect of interaction between C1473G polymorphism and 30min(More)
Tryptophan hydroxylase-2 (Tph2) is the rate limiting enzyme of serotonin synthesis in the brain. The functional (C1473G) polymorphism in the mouse Tph2 gene affecting the enzymatic activity was suspected to be involved in behavioral actions of ethanol (EtOH). Congenic B6-1473C (C/C) and B6-1473G (G/G) lines bred from C57BL/6 mice were not different in(More)
The first study on the frequencies of polymorphic variants of the GSTP1 gene encoding glutathione-S-transferase P1 in Tundra Nenets and Nganasan populations was performed. The subject of the study was the single nucleotide polymorphisms rs1695 (Ile105Val substitution in the protein sequence) and rs1138272 (Ala114Val substitution) that had previously been(More)
This paper concerns a polymorphism of the cytochrome Р450 CYP1A1 gene, the CYP1A1*2C variant (Ile462Val, rs1048943). This substitution results in the doubling of enzyme activity, which leads to the accumulation of active intermediates and increases the risk of DNA mutations and chemically induced carcinogenesis. It has been demonstrated that the 462Val(More)
