ABSTRACT In this descriptive study we investigated the genetic structure of 513 Mexican indigenous subjects grouped in 14 populations (Mixteca-Alta, Mixteca-Baja, Otomi, Purépecha, Tzeltal, Tarahumara, Huichol, Nahua-Atocpan, Nahua-Xochimilco, Nahua-Zitlala, Nahua-Chilacachapa, Nahua-Ixhuatlancillo, Nahua-Necoxtla, and Nahua-Coyolillo) based on mtDNA haplogroups. These communities are geographically and culturally isolated; parents and grandparents were born in the community. Our data show that… 
Genetic structure of three Native Mexican communities based on mtDNA haplogroups, and ABO and Rh blood group systems.
TLDR
No statistically-significant differences were found among the three populations studied or between them and 13 previously reported Native Mexican populations.
Maternal admixture and population structure in Mexican-Mestizos based on mtDNA haplogroups.
TLDR
The comparison of paternal and maternal lineages provided additional information concerning the gender bias admixture, mating patterns, and population structure in Mestizos throughout the Mexican territory.
A great diversity of Amerindian mitochondrial DNA ancestry is present in the Mexican mestizo population
TLDR
The minimum spanning network, the mismatch distribution and Tajima's D neutrality test suggest a population expansion for each Amerindian haplogroup, which could be initiated more recently for haplogroups A2 and D1.
Complete mitogenome analysis of indigenous populations in Mexico: its relevance for the origin of Mesoamericans
TLDR
This intriguing genetic relationship suggests the presence of two paleo-Mesoamerican groups, invoking a scenario in which one group had expanded into South America and the other resided in Mesoamerica.
Genetic Overview of the Maya Populations: Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups
TLDR
It is proposed that the genetic similarity among ancient and present-day Maya populations persists due to a strong sense of social cohesion and identity that impacts their marriage practices, keeping this cultural group isolated.
The Mitochondrial DNA Landscape of Modern Mexico
TLDR
Analysis of the mitochondrial DNA control region sequences revealed an overwhelming Native American legacy in the modern Mexican population, with ~90% of mtDNAs belonging to the four major pan-American haplogroups A2, B2, C1 and D1, which supports a European contribution to the Mexican gene pool primarily by male settlers and confirms the effectiveness of employing the uniparentally-transmitted mtDNA as a tool to reconstruct a country's history.
Antropología molecular y análisis del ADN mitocondrial en poblaciones nahuas del Altiplano de México
This study identifies the mitochondrial haplogroup frequencies, A, B, C and D, in present-day Nahua inhabiting the states of Hidalgo, Puebla, and San Luis Potosi. The results obtained were compared
Genetic Affiliation of Pre-Hispanic and Contemporary Mayas Through Maternal Linage
abstract Maya civilization developed in Mesoamerica and encompassed the Yucatan Peninsula, Guatemala, Belize, part of the Mexican states of Tabasco and Chiapas, and the western parts of Honduras
Mitochondrial DNA Diversity in Mennonite Communities from the Midwestern United States
TLDR
Multivariate statistical analysis of six Mennonite communities from Kansas and Nebraska indicates that these Anabaptist communities formed new congregations by fissioning along familial lines and population subdivision of these communities into congregations supports previously documented patterns of fission-fusion.

Genetic structure of seven Mexican indigenous populations based on five polymarker loci
TLDR
The demonstration of a relative genetic homogeneity of Mexican Indians for the markers studied suggests that this population is suitable for studying disease‐marker associations in the search for candidate genes of complex diseases.
Mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms in Chilean aboriginal populations: implications for the peopling of the southern cone of the continent.
TLDR
The mtDNA haplotypes of these three contemporary South American aborigine groups clustered into four main haplogroups, in a way similar to those previously described for other Amerindians, which suggest that the people of Tierra del Fuego are related to tribes from south-central South America.
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.
Classification of European mtDNAs from an analysis of three European populations.
TLDR
The conclusion that most haplogroups observed in Europe are Caucasoid-specific, and that at least some of them occur at varying frequencies in different Caucasoid populations, is supported.
mtDNA affinities of the peoples of North-Central Mexico.
TLDR
Diagnostic, discrete character, molecular genetic evidence is provided that is informative with regard to both the magnitude of African admixture and the relative maternal contribution of African, European, and Native American peoples to the genetic heritage of Mexico.
Asian affinities and continental radiation of the four founding Native American mtDNAs.
TLDR
Observations suggest that the process of tribalization began early in the history of the Amerinds, with relatively little intertribal genetic exchange occurring subsequently.
Amerindian mitochondrial DNAs have rare Asian mutations at high frequencies, suggesting they derived from four primary maternal lineages.
TLDR
The analysis of mitochondrial DNA sequence variation of the South American Ticuna, the Central American Maya, and the North American Pima revealed that Amerindian populations have high frequencies of mtDNAs containing the rare Asian RFLP HincII morph 6, a rare HaeIII site gain, and a unique AluI site gain.
mtDNA and the origin of Caucasians: identification of ancient Caucasian-specific haplogroups, one of which is prone to a recurrent somatic duplication in the D-loop region.
TLDR
The sequence divergence of these haplogroups indicates that they arose early in Caucasian radiation and gave raise to modern European mtDNAs, suggesting that Homo sapiens sapiens displaced H. s.
Gene frequencies and admixture estimates in four Mexican urban centers.
TLDR
The general pattern has high Indian ancestry followed by white and black ancestry, congruent with most other studies performed in Mexico, including the east coast, where Indian ancestry predominates despite a clear increase in the black contribution.
mtDNA haplogroup X: An ancient link between Europe/Western Asia and North America?
TLDR
Time estimates for the arrival of X in North America are 12,000-36,000 years ago, thus supporting the conclusion that the peoples harboring haplogroup X were among the original founders of Native American populations.
