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… Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Analysis of Mazahua and Otomi Indigenous Populations from Estado de México Suggests a Distant Common Ancestry
TLDR
The genetic differences between the Mazahua 1 and Otomi EM suggest a distant shared ancestry and a moderate degree of maternal admixture that has not obscured the difference of their mtDNA patterns. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Y chromosome diversity in Aztlan descendants and its implications for the history of Central Mexico
TLDR
High-resolution Y chromosome analysis with Native Mexican populations affirmed the southward colonization of the Americas via Beringia and connected Native Mexicans with indigenous populations from South-Central Siberia and Canada and suggested that multiple population dispersals gave rise to Y chromosome diversity in these populations. Expand
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 comparedExpand
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 HondurasExpand
Y-chromosome diversity in Native Mexicans reveals continental transition of genetic structure in the Americas.
TLDR
The Y-chromosome genetic diversity of 197 Native Mexicans from 11 populations and 1,044 individuals from 44 Native American populations is described after combining with publicly available data to point toward a complex genetic makeup of Native Mexicans whose maternal and paternal lineages reveal different narratives of their population history.

Genetic admixture of eight Mexican indigenous populations: Based on five polymarker, HLA‐DQA1, ABO, and RH loci
TLDR
The findings herein demonstrate that the genetic admixture of the Mexican indigenous populations who at present speak the same Amer‐Indian language can be differentiated and that the majority of them have less ancestral indigenous contribution than those considered as Mestizo populations. Expand
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. Expand
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. 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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
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. Expand
Extensive mitochondrial diversity within a single Amerindian tribe.
TLDR
Data do not support the concept of a dramatic founder effect during the peopling of the Americas and suggest that a single Amerindian tribe can contain such extensive molecular diversity, it is unnecessary to presume that substantial genetic bottlenecks occurred during the formation of contemporary ethnic groups.
