Genomic diversity of 21 STR loci has been studied in six ethnic populations of Daghestan (the Caucasus), namely, Avars, Dargins, Kubachians, Lezgins, and Nogais, and the results have been compared with these data for European, African, and East Asian ethnic groups. Daghestan is unique in its ethnic diversity, which is the greatest in the Caucasus: 26 out of(More)
We conducted a genome-wide linkage scan in two extended pedigrees ascertained from two Dagestan genetic isolates (N(o)6007 and 6008) with high aggregation of early onset major depressive disorders (MDD). The first pedigree included in total 22 cases of MDD (15 available) and 11 suicides; the second pedigree contained 29 MDD cases (23 available) and 12(More)
Invariant values of inheritance factors within and between different populations can show the existence of and measure the degree of genetic determination of behavioural characters. The absence of inbred depression of quantitative behavioural characters in isolated populations of highland inhabitants of Daghestan is demonstrated by means of comparative(More)
Results of a total genetic demography study of females of postreproductive age from both parts of "splits" highland isolates of Dagestan, highlanders, and migrants to lowlands are described. The components of natural selection that were related to differential mortality and differential fertility were estimated in the highlanders and the migrants using Crow(More)
This is a continuation of a series of papers devoted to studying the genetic mechanisms of adaptation in migrants from isolated highland populations of Dagestan to new ecological conditions (lowlands). This paper describes the main results of studying the relationship between levels of inbreeding, homozygosity, and physiological sensitivity. Earlier, we(More)
Genetic, demographic, and biochemical studies of three isolated ethnic populations of Dagestan were performed. Two populations lived in their historical (highland and lowland) habitats, and one population migrated from highlands to lowlands, i.e., changed its environment. A substantial genetic differentiation with respect to eight biochemical systems and(More)
We have studied the effect of genetic processes in ethnically and demographically diverse isolates on the epidemiology of complex diseases. Our long-term studies of five indigenous Dagestan ethnic groups have revealed ten genetic isolates with aggregation of schizophrenia-related diseases. According to Neel's classification (1992), these isolates belong to(More)
Subdivision of some isolates and heterogenic populations in Daghestan is analysed by human gene and phen frequencies. Comparative population study of phenotypic variability of quantitative characters (anthropometric, neurodynamic and psychodynamic) is carried out. Common hierarchy of variability for all populations as well as an effect of inbreeding and(More)
The paper demonstrates the expedience of the developed populational-genetic approach to studying the genetic bases of a complex of quantitative characters pertaining to different levels of human organization: anthropometry, neurodynamics and psychodynamics. The studies were carried out in eight human populations of different degree of isolation and ethnical(More)
