Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) sequence variation was examined in Finns, Swedes and Tuscans by PCR amplification and restriction analysis. About 99% of the mtDNAs were subsumed within 10 mtDNA haplogroups (H, I, J, K, M, T, U, V, W, and X) suggesting that the identified haplogroups could encompass virtually all European mtDNAs. Because both hypervariable segments of the mtDNA control region were previously sequenced in the Tuscan samples, the mtDNA haplogroups and control region sequences could be…

Mitochondrial DNA Sequence Analysis in the Lithuanian Population
TLDR
Comparisons with other European populations demonstrated that the Lithuanian mt DNA gene pool is more closely related to the mtDNA gene pool of Northern European populations, while molecular diversity indices indicate that the Lithuaniaians are among the more diverse populations in Europe.
Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups in the Czech Population Compared to Other European Countries
TLDR
The results of this study reveal that the frequency of mtDNA haplogroups in the Czech population is similar to the frequencies obtained in other European countries, especially Poland, Germany, and Russia.
Prevalence of mitochondrial DNA haplogroups in an Australian population
TLDR
The prevalence of mtDNA haplogroups in participants of the Blue Mountains Eye Study, a large population‐based survey of vision conducted between 1991 and 2000 of non‐institutionalized permanent residents aged 49’years or older from two suburban postcode areas, west of Sydney, Australia, is studied.
Mitochondrial DNA Variability in the Czech Population, with Application to the Ethnic History of Slavs
TLDR
It is suggested that the presence of East Eurasian mtDNA haplotypes is not an original feature of the gene pool of the proto-Slavs but rather may be mostly a consequence of admixture with Central Asian nomadic tribes, who migrated into Central and Eastern Europe in the early Middle Ages.
Phylogenetic analysis of mtDNA haplogroup TJ in a Finnish population
TLDR
A phylogenetic networks for mtDNA haplogroup TJ that were based on the sequence of the complete coding region and the hypervariable segment I, respectively, in 28 Finnish samples revealed a subdivision of the haplogroups into subclusters T1, T2, J1, and J2, while comparison of the two networks suggested nine fast evolving nucleotide sites in the hyper variable segment I.
Phylogenetic network for European mtDNA.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence in the coding region of mtDNA was determined from 121 Finns, by conformation-sensitive gel electrophoresis and subsequent sequencing and by direct sequencing of the D loop, which allowed the compilation of unambiguous phylogenetic networks.
Mitochondrial DNA Diversity in the Polish Roma
TLDR
Results of complete mtDNA sequencing clearly indicate that the Romani M*‐lineage belongs to the Indian‐specific haplogroup M5, which is characterized by three transitions in the coding region, at sites 12477, 3921 and 709.
Determination of Human European Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups by Means of a Hierarchical Approach
TLDR
A hierarchical approach to screening of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) haplogroups in populations that have essentially West Eurasian mtDNA backgrounds but that could have some non-West Eurasian contributions, which results in a more rapid and cost-efficient screening than one in which all polymorphic positions are analyzed.

Analysis of mtDNA variation in African populations reveals the most ancient of all human continent-specific haplogroups.
TLDR
Comparison of the intrapopulation sequence divergence in African and non-African populations confirms that African populations exhibit the largest extent of mtDNA variation, a result that further supports the hypothesis that Africans represent the most ancient human group and that all modern humans have a common and recent African origin.
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.
Sequence diversity of the control region of mitochondrial DNA in Tuscany and its implications for the peopling of Europe.
The control region of mitochondrial DNA has been widely studied in various human populations. This paper reports sequence data for hypervariable segments 1 and 2 of the control region from a
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.
Mitochondrial DNA analysis in Tibet: implications for the origin of the Tibetan population and its adaptation to high altitude.
TLDR
It is suggested that mtDNA mutations are unlikely to play a major role in the adaptation of Tibetans to high altitudes and is supportive of previous genetic evidence that Tibetans, although located in southern Asia, share common ancestral origins with northern Mongoloid populations.
Geographic variation in human mitochondrial DNA from Papua New Guinea.
TLDR
Analysis of high resolution mitochondrial DNA restriction maps in Papua New Guinea shows that there is significant structuring of mtDNA variation among worldwide populations, between highland and coastal PNG populations, and even between two highland PNG populations located approximately 200 km apart; however, coastal PNG population are essentially panmictic, despite being spread over several hundred kilometers.
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.
mtDNA variation of aboriginal Siberians reveals distinct genetic affinities with Native Americans.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the first humans to move from Siberia to the Americas carried with them a limited number of founding mtDNAs is supported and that the initial migration occurred between 17,000-34,000 years before present.
Southeast Asian mitochondrial DNA analysis reveals genetic continuity of ancient mongoloid migrations.
TLDR
Human mitochondrial DNAs from 153 independent samples encompassing seven Asian populations were surveyed for sequence variation using the polymerase chain reaction (PCR), restriction endonuclease analysis and oligonucleotide hybridization, indicating a Southern Mongoloid origin of Asians.
African populations and the evolution of human mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
The African origin hypothesis of human mtDNA evolution is supported by two statistical tests and two hypervariable segments of mtDNA were sequenced from 189 people of diverse geographic origin, including 121 native Africans.
