Major genomic mitochondrial lineages delineate early human expansions
TLDR
The relative relationships among the 42 human lineages are shown and more accurate temporal calibrations are presented than have been previously possible to give new perspectives as how modern humans spread in the Old World.
Reduced genetic structure of the Iberian peninsula revealed by Y-chromosome analysis: implications for population demography
TLDR
The results indicate that neither old or recent Levantine expansions nor North African contacts have influenced the current Iberian Y-chromosome diversity so that geographical patterns can be identified.
Mitochondrial DNA transit between West Asia and North Africa inferred from U6 phylogeography
TLDR
The most probable origin of the proto-U6 lineage was the Near East, and around 30,000 years ago it spread to North Africa where it represents a signature of regional continuity.
Ancient mtDNA analysis and the origin of the Guanches
The prehistoric colonisation of the Canary Islands by the Guanches (native Canarians) woke up great expectation about their origin, since the Europeans conquest of the Archipelago. Here, we report
Mitochondrial DNA affinities at the Atlantic fringe of Europe.
TLDR
Mitochondrial DNA analysis of Atlantic European samples has detected significant latitudinal clines for several clusters with Paleolithic and Neolithic coalescence ages in Europe, and it is proposed that a pre-Neolithic origin for this gene flow is proposed.
A Predominant European Ancestry of Paternal Lineages from Canary Islanders
TLDR
The results indicate that, contrary to mtDNA data, paternal lineages of the current population are overwhelmingly of European origin, arguing for a highly asymmetric pattern of mating after European occupation.
Status and relationships of the extinct giant Canary Island lizard Gallotia goliath (Reptilia: Lacertidae), assessed using ancient mtDNA from its mummified remains
TLDR
Ancient mitochondrial DNA sequences extracted from a mummified extinct giant lizard, Gallotia goliath, from eastern Tenerife, Canary Islands, were used to assess the species status and relationship of this form within the genus.
Y Chromosome and Mitochondrial DNA Characterization of Pasiegos, a Human Isolate from Cantabria (Spain)
TLDR
The high incidence in Cantabrians with pre‐V and V mtDNA haplotypes, considered as a signal of Postglacial recolonization in Europe from south‐western refugees, points to such refugees as a better candidate population than Basques for this expansion, however, this does not discount a conjoint recolonizing.
Angiotensin-converting enzyme insertion/deletion polymorphism is not associated with susceptibility and outcome in sepsis and acute respiratory distress syndrome
TLDR
The data do not support an association of the ACE gene I/D polymorphism with susceptibility or mortality in severe sepsis or with sepsi-induced ARDS in Spanish patients.
Y-Chromosome Differentiation in Northwest Africa
TLDR
A large number of paternal lineages of Northwest African origin are shown, supporting a long-term population continuity in the area and some gene flow between areas was detected by the presence of haplogroups with other geographical origins.
