Phylogeographic differentiation of mitochondrial DNA in Han Chinese.
TLDR
These and other features of the geographical distribution of the mtDNA haplogroups observed in the Han Chinese make an initial Paleolithic colonization from south to north plausible but would suggest subsequent migration events in China that mainly proceeded from north to south and east to west. Expand
Updating the East Asian mtDNA phylogeny: a prerequisite for the identification of pathogenic mutations.
TLDR
A reassessment of the mtDNA data from a series of disease studies testified to the usefulness of such a refined mtDNA tree in evaluating the pathogenicity of mtDNA mutations and a guideline based on the phylogenetic knowledge as proposed here could help avoiding similar problems in the future. Expand
Different matrilineal contributions to genetic structure of ethnic groups in the silk road region in china.
TLDR
Direct evidence supporting the suggestion that Central Asia is the location of genetic admixture of the East and the West is provided, with the highest frequency present in Uygur and Uzbek samples, and no western Eurasian type was found in Han Chinese samples from the same place. Expand
The Phylogeny of the Four Pan-American MtDNA Haplogroups: Implications for Evolutionary and Disease Studies
TLDR
A human entry and spread of the pan-American haplogroups into the Americas right after the peak of the Last Glacial Maximum is indicated and comfortably agrees with the undisputed ages of the earliest Paleoindians in South America. Expand
Phylogeny of mitochondrial DNA macrohaplogroup N in India, based on complete sequencing: implications for the peopling of South Asia.
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the Indian mt DNA pool, even when restricted to macrohaplogroup N, harbors at least as many deepest-branching lineages as the western Eurasian mtDNA pool. Expand
Distinctive Paleo-Indian Migration Routes from Beringia Marked by Two Rare mtDNA Haplogroups
TLDR
A dual origin for the first Americans is a striking novelty from the genetic point of view, and it makes plausible a scenario positing that within a rather short period of time, there may have been several entries into the Americas from a dynamically changing Beringian source. Expand
Corrigendum: Genome-wide association study of esophageal squamous cell carcinoma in Chinese subjects identifies susceptibility loci at PLCE1 and C20orf54
TLDR
The authors now find no evidence to support association with esophageal squamous cell carcinoma susceptibility for rs13042395[T] at 20p13 in their original data, in two independent sets of cases and controls collected in other Chinese populations or in the joint analysis of these three studies. Expand
Phylogeny of east Asian mitochondrial DNA lineages inferred from complete sequences.
TLDR
This East Asian mtDNA phylogeny can henceforth serve as a solid basis for phylogeographic analyses of mtDNAs, as well as for studies of mitochondrial diseases in East and Southeast Asia. Expand
The dazzling array of basal branches in the mtDNA macrohaplogroup M from India as inferred from complete genomes.
TLDR
The comparison of matrilineal components among India, East Asia, Southeast Asia, and Oceania at the deepest level yielded a star-like and nonoverlapping pattern, reflecting a rapid mode of modern human dispersal along the Asian coast after the initial "out-of-Africa" event. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA sequence polymorphisms of five ethnic populations from northern China
TLDR
The haplogroup distribution frequencies varied in the five ethnic populations, but in general they all harbored a large amount of north-prevalent haplogroups, such as D, G, C, and Z, and thus were in agreement with their ethnohistory of northern origin. Expand
