BACKGROUND It is widely accepted that the ancestors of Native Americans arrived in the New World via Beringia approximately 10 to 30 thousand years ago (kya. [...] Key Result Haplogroup D4h3 spread into the Americas along the Pacific coast, whereas X2a entered through the ice-free corridor between the Laurentide and Cordilleran ice sheets.Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Mitochondrial haplogroup C4c: a rare lineage entering America through the ice-free corridor?
TLDR
The finding that C4c and X2a are characterized by parallel genetic histories definitively dismisses the controversial hypothesis of an Atlantic glacial entry route into North America. Expand
Rapid coastal spread of First Americans: novel insights from South America's Southern Cone mitochondrial genomes.
TLDR
This study confirms that major sampling and sequencing efforts are mandatory for uncovering all of the most basal variation in the Native American mtDNA haplogroups and for clarification of Paleo-Indian migrations, by targeting, if possible, both the general mixed population of national states and autochthonous Native American groups, especially in South America. Expand
Mitochondrial Echoes of First Settlement and Genetic Continuity in El Salvador
TLDR
The results of the analysis of the mtDNA variation in a population sample from El Salvador reveal a predominant Native American component in this region, compatible with the hypothesis that today's A2 variability in El Salvador represents to a large extent the indigenous component of the region. Expand
Paternal origin of Paleo-Indians in Siberia: insights from Y-chromosome sequences
TLDR
The analysis suggests that the in situ differentiation of Q-M242 in Central Eurasia and South Siberia region gave rise to numerous sub-lineages older than 15.3 kya, and the founding of Paleo-Indian paternal lineages is part of the great Q1-L53 diffusion throughout the Eurasia after the Last Glacial Maximum. Expand
Mitochondrial haplogroup U5b3: a distant echo of the epipaleolithic in Italy and the legacy of the early Sardinians.
TLDR
It is shown, through phylogeographic analyses of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variation performed at the highest level of molecular resolution, that the most likely homeland for U5b3-a haplogroup present at a very low frequency across Europe-was the Italian Peninsula. Expand
The Arabian cradle: mitochondrial relicts of the first steps along the southern route out of Africa.
TLDR
Analysis of three minor west-Eurasian haplogroups shows that they have a relict distribution that suggests an ancient ancestry within the Arabian Peninsula, and they most likely spread from the Gulf Oasis region toward the Near East and Europe during the pluvial period 55-24 ka ago. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA signals of late glacial recolonization of Europe from near eastern refugia.
TLDR
It is reported that a substantial, perhaps predominant, signal from mitochondrial haplogroups J and T, previously thought to have spread primarily from the Near East into Europe with the Neolithic population, may in fact reflect dispersals during the Late Glacial period, ∼19-12 thousand years (ka) ago. Expand
Arrival of Paleo-Indians to the Southern Cone of South America: New Clues from Mitogenomes
TLDR
This study sequenced 46 mitogenomes belonging to two additional clades, termed B2i2 (former B2l) and C1b13, which were recently identified on the basis of mtDNA control-region data and whose geographical distributions appear to be restricted to Chile and Argentina and confirm that their mutational motifs most likely arose in the Southern Cone region. Expand
An Alternative Model for the Early Peopling of Southern South America Revealed by Analyses of Three Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups
TLDR
The results indicate that the extant native populations inhabiting South Chile and Argentina are a group which had a common origin, and suggest a population break between the extreme south of South America and the more northern part of the continent. Expand
Analysis of the human Y-chromosome haplogroup Q characterizes ancient population movements in Eurasia and the Americas
TLDR
A detailed haplogroup Q phylogeny is established that provides new insights into the geographic distribution of its Eurasian and American branches in modern and ancient samples and a “coastal and inland routes scenario” for the first entrance of modern humans in North America is supported. Expand

Mitochondrial population genomics supports a single pre-Clovis origin with a coastal route for the peopling of the Americas.
TLDR
It is shown, by using 86 complete mitochondrial genomes, that all Native American haplogroups, including haplogroup X, were part of a single founding population, thereby refuting multiple-migration models and supporting a pre-Clovis occupation of the New World. Expand
The molecular dissection of mtDNA haplogroup H confirms that the Franco-Cantabrian glacial refuge was a major source for the European gene pool.
TLDR
Findings have major implications for the origin of Europeans, since they attest that the Franco-Cantabrian refuge area was indeed the source of late-glacial expansions of hunter-gatherers that repopulated much of Central and Northern Europe from ~15,000 years ago. Expand
Mitochondrial genome diversity in arctic Siberians, with particular reference to the evolutionary history of Beringia and Pleistocenic peopling of the Americas.
TLDR
This study confirms that Alaska seems to be the ancestral homeland of haplogroup A2 originating in situ and an additional founding lineage for Native American D, termed here D10, arose approximately 17.0 kya in what is now the Russian Far East and eventually spread northward along the North Pacific Rim.

TLDR
Nucleotide diversity analyses based on haplogroup A sequences suggest that Native Americans and Chukchi originated from a single migration to Beringia that occurred approximately 30,000 or approximately 43,000 years ago, with 95% confidence intervals between approximately 22,000 and approximately 55,000 ago. 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
Phylogeographic analysis of mitochondrial DNA in northern Asian populations.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the southern Siberian mtDNA pool harbors several lineages associated with the Late Upper Paleolithic and/or early Neolithic dispersals from both eastern Asia and southwestern Asia/southern Caucasus. Expand
mtDNA history of the Cayapa Amerinds of Ecuador: detection of additional founding lineages for the Native American populations.
TLDR
Data frommtDNA variation in the Cayapa, an Ecuadorian Amerindian tribe belonging to the Chibcha-Paezan linguistic branch, and phylogenetic analysis performed with the Amerinds of Central and South America highlight the difficulty in the identification of clear coevolutionary patterns between linguistic and genetic relationships in particular human populations. Expand
mtDNA sequences suggest a recent evolutionary divergence for Beringian and northern North American populations.
TLDR
The similarity of sequences found among the geographically dispersed Circumarctic groups, plus the small values of mean pairwise sequence differences withincircumarctic populations, suggest a recent and rapid evolutionary radiation of these populations. 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
Native American mtDNA prehistory in the American Southwest.
TLDR
The mtDNA diversity of the proposed descendants of the multiethnic Hohokam and Anasazi cultural traditions, as well as Uto-Aztecan and Southern-Athapaskan groups are examined to investigate hypothesized migrations associated with the Southwest region, finding no evidence of a movement of mtDNA lineages northward into the Southwest from Central Mexico.
