Abstract In this study we analyzed a sample of the urban population of La Plata, Argentina, using 17 mtDNA haplogroups, the DYS199 Y-chromosome polymorphism, and 5 autosomal population-associated alleles (PAAs). The contribution of native American maternal lineages to the population of La Plata was estimated as 45.6%, whereas the paternal contribution was much lower (10.6%), clearly indicating directional mating. Regarding autosomal evidence of admixture, the relative European, native American… Expand

Population Structure and Admixture in Cerro Largo, Uruguay, Based on Blood Markers and Mitochondrial
Recent studies of the Uruguayan population revealed different amounts of Amerindian and African genetic contributions. Our previous analysis of Afro-Uruguayans from the capital city of the DepartmentExpand
Population structure and admixture in Cerro Largo, Uruguay, based on blood markers and mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms
TLDR
An extended analysis of Afro‐Uruguayans from the capital city of the Department of Cerro Largo showed a high proportion of African genes, and the effects of directional mating involving Amerindian women, but differences involving Africans were not significant. Expand
Gender Differences in Ancestral Contribution and Admixture in Venezuelan Populations
TLDR
The genome of paternal heredity shows a homogeneous pattern of admixture that is independent of the origin of the population studied, suggesting that European genes have been introduced into the Venezuelan population through male immigrations, whereas the indigenous contribution has been preserved in the Venezuelan genetic pool through the women. Expand
Admixture Estimates for Caracas, Venezuela, Based on Autosomal, Y-Chromosome, and mtDNA Markers
ABSTRACT The present Venezuelan population is the product of admixture of Amerindians, Europeans, and Africans, a process that was not homogeneous throughout the country. Blood groups, short tandemExpand
High interpopulation homogeneity in Central Argentina as assessed by Ancestry Informative Markers (AIMs)
TLDR
The AIM estimates indicated a greater influence of the Native American ancestry as compared to previous studies in the same or other Argentinean regions, but smaller than that observed with the mtDNA tests. Expand
Ancestral genetic legacy of the extant population of Argentina as predicted by autosomal and X-chromosomal DIPs.
TLDR
This work shows the ability of the tested DIP panels to infer ancestry and confirm mating bias, and the observed differences between the estimated continental genetic contribution proportions based on autosomal DIPs and X-DIPs reflect the effects of autosome andX-chromosome transmission behaviour and their different recombination patterns.

Sex-Specific Genetic Admixture of Mestizos, Amerindian Kichwas, and Afro-Ecuadorans from Ecuador
ABSTRACT Three main ethnic groups live in the South American country of Ecuador: Mestizos, Amerindian natives, and African-derived populations, or Afro-Ecuadorans. Mestizos and Afro-Ecuadorans can beExpand
Inferring Continental Ancestry of Argentineans from Autosomal, Y‐Chromosomal and Mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
The results demonstrate that European, Native American and African ancestry components were detectable in the contemporary Argentineans, the amounts depending on the genetic system applied, exhibiting large inter‐individual heterogeneity. Expand
Ancestry proportions in urban populations of Argentina
Abstract In this work we aimed to evaluate the African, European and Native American ancestral contributions to different Argentinean populations. A set of 46 ancestry-informative insertion–deletionExpand
Relevant genetic contribution of Amerindian to the extant population of Argentina
TLDR
Uniparentally inherited genetic markers located in the non-recombinant regions of the Y-chromosome may clarify the strict European ancestry of the nowadays population of Argentina. Expand

Paternal directional mating in two Amerindian subpopulations located at different altitudes in northwestern Argentina.
TLDR
The findings are in good agreement with historical reports indicating that the colonization of South America was undertaken by men who usually practiced polygamous unions with Amerindian women and that San Salvador de Jujuy was the main northwestern Argentinian region of European to Amerindia gene admixture. Expand
Ancestral proportions and admixture dynamics in geographically defined African Americans living in South Carolina.
TLDR
The results of this study indicate, in accordance with previous historical, cultural, and anthropological evidence, a very low level of European admixture in the Gullah Sea Islanders, and a continuous gene flow model of admixture could explain the observed pattern of genetic structure. Expand
Estimating African American admixture proportions by use of population-specific alleles.
TLDR
Significant nonrandom association between two markers located 22 cM apart (FY-null and AT3) is detected, most likely due to admixture linkage disequilibrium created in the interbreeding of the two parental populations, emphasize the importance of admixed populations as a useful resource for mapping traits with different prevalence in two parental population.

Unequal contributions of male and female gene pools from parental populations in the African descendants of the city of Melo, Uruguay.
TLDR
Evidence of male- and female-specific differential admixture components of African, European, and American Indian origin in an admixed population from the city of Melo, in the northeastern region of Uruguay is provided and it is argued that this heterogeneity of admixture estimates results from disproportionate unions of European males with African and AmericanIndian females.

TLDR
From these studies it is possible to conclude that Amerindian admixture came mainly from female lineages, but it is difficult to establish what happened with the African contribution. Expand
mtDNA and Y-chromosome polymorphisms in four Native American populations from southern Mexico.
TLDR
This analysis suggests that certain Y-chromosome haplotypes were brought from Asia during the colonization of the Americas, and a differential gene flow was introduced into Native American populations from European males and females. Expand
Genetic Diversity in an Andean Population from Peru and Regional Migration Patterns of Amerindians in South America: Data from Y Chromosome and Mitochondrial DNA
TLDR
The comparison of mtDNA of Andean Amerindians with that of people from other regions of South America demonstrates a geographical pattern, with a decreasing frequency of A and C haplotypes and increasing frequency of the D haplotype reaching the lowest and the highest frequencies, respectively, in the more southern populations of Chile and Argentina.

Genetic relationships between Amerindian populations of Argentina.
TLDR
Both the blood group and protein, as well as the mtDNA data sets, divide the five tribes into two groups, and the relationships obtained are exactly those expected on the basis of geography and language. Expand
Characterization of ancestral and derived Y-chromosome haplotypes of New World native populations.
TLDR
The ancestral founder haplotype, 0A, of the DYS199T lineage is identified and it is proposed that 0A is one of the most prevalent founder paternal lineages of New World aborigines. Expand
Founder mitochondrial haplotypes in Amerindian populations.
TLDR
The study of RFLP all along the mtDNA and the analysis of nucleotide substitutions in the D-loop region of the mitochondrial genome apparently indicate that most or all full-blooded Amerindians cluster in one of four different mitochondrial haplotypes that are considered to represent the founder maternal lineages of Paleo-Indians.
