We have characterized the HLA‐A, ‐B, ‐DRB1, ‐DQA1 and ‐DQB1 profiles of three major ethnic groups living in Chelyabinsk Region of Russian South Urals, viz., Russians (n = 207), Bashkirs (n = 146) and Tatars (n = 135). First field level typing was performed by PCR using sequence‐specific primers. Estimates included carriage and gene frequencies, linkage disequilibrium and its significance and related values. Population comparisons were made between the allele family frequencies of the three… 

Polymorphisms of HLA-DRB1, -DQA1 and -DQB1 in Inhabitants of Astana, the Capital City of Kazakhstan

The HLA-DRB1, -DQA1and -DQB1 loci are highly polymorphic in the Kazakh population, and this population has the closest relationship with other Asian and Siberian populations.

Immunogenetic characteristics of unrelated hematopoietic stem cell donors recruited in the Sverdlovsk, Saratov, Yaroslavl and Vladimir regions

Routine HLA typing allowed us to define four new HLA alleles in the populations of the Sverdlovsk and Saratov region, and the highest frequency extended haplotype in the all studied populations exhibited frequencies over 10 %.

Haplotype analysis of the HFE gene among populations of Northern Eurasia, in patients with metabolic disorders or stomach cancer, and in long-lived people

No significant differences in frequencies of the alleles with mutations in coding regions of the HFE gene were detected between the analyzed patients (with stomach cancer, metabolic syndrome, fatty liver disease, or type 2 diabetes mellitus) and the control Caucasoid sample.

SNP-Density Crossover Maps of Polymorphic Transposable Elements and HLA Genes Within MHC Class I Haplotype Blocks and Junction

SNP-density crossovers are associated with putative ancestral recombination sites that are widely spread across the MHC class I genomic region and the genomic sequences of MHC homozygous cell lines are useful for analysing haplotype blocks, ancestral haplotypic landscapes and markers, CPSs, and SNP-density crossover junctions.


During the carried out research two new alleles were identified in the studied population; one was registered in the WHO Nomenclature Committee for Factors of the HLA System, the other one was submitted for registration.

Analysis of healthy cohorts for single nucleotide polymorphisms in C1q gene cluster

This is the first study analyzing the allele frequencies and genotype distribution of C1q gene cluster SNPs in Bulgarian healthy population and found that genotype AA of rs172378 was significantly overrepresented in Bulgarians when compared to other healthy Caucasians from USA and UK.

La diversidad biológica en los haplotipos del sistema HLA en las poblaciones mestizas de México

Los estudios de genetica de poblaciones que describen el polimorfismo del Complejo Principal de Histocompatibilidad (mhc por sus siglas en ingles) han mostrado que determinados alelos y haplotipos



HLA Genes in the Chuvashian Population from European Russia: Admixture of Central European and Mediterranean Populations

Present-day Chuvash who speak an Altaic-Turkic language are probably more closely related to ancient Mesopotamian-Hittites and northern European populations than to central Asia-Altaic people.

HLA genes in Macedonians and the sub-Saharan origin of the Greeks.

Genetic distances are closer between Greeks and Ethiopian/ sub-Saharan groups than to any other Mediterranean group and Greeks cluster with Ethiopians/sub-Saharans in both neighbour joining dendrograms and correspondence analyses.

Origin and affinities of indigenous Siberian populations as revealed by HLA class II gene frequencies

Phylogenetic analysis of the frequency data suggests that the HLA genes of Asian and indigenous American populations stem from a single pool distinct from the gene pools of European and African populations.

Distributions of HLA class I alleles and haplotypes in Bulgarians--contribution to understanding the origin of the population.

It is suggested that the Bulgarian population is characterized by the features of the Southern European anthropological type with some influence of other groups such as Asians, Turks, Armenians.

HLA polymorphism in Bulgarians defined by high-resolution typing methods in comparison with other populations.

The HLA-A,B, -DRB1 allele and haplotype diversity defined by high-resolution DNA methods confirm that the Bulgarian population is characterized by features of southern European anthropological type with some influence of additional ethnic groups.

HLA alleles and haplotypes in the Turkish population: relatedness to Kurds, Armenians and other Mediterraneans.

It is concluded that this invasion had a relatively few invaders in comparison to the already settled populations, i.e. Anatolian Hittite and Hurrian groups (older than 2000 B.C.), which may have given rise to present-day Kurdish, Armenian and Turkish populations.

HLA class II molecular polymorphisms in healthy Slavic individuals from North-Western Russia.

Allele and haplotype frequencies were found to be similar to those observed in other Caucasian populations, with the exception of considerably high prevalence of the DPB1*0301 allele in the group studied.

Genetic origin of the Swedish Sami inferred from HLA class I and class II allele frequencies

High-resolution typing of the class I HLA-A and -B loci and the class II DRB1, DQB1 and DQA1 loci in the northern and southern Swedish Sami indicates a higher proportion of Asian ancestry in the Sami than shown by previous genetic studies.

HLA class II gene polymorphism in Parsees and Zoroastrians of Iran

This study will serve as a reference for further anthropological studies when the HLA profile of all ethnic groups of Iran is investigated, and Neighbour‐joining tree based on Nei's genetic distances according to DRB1 and DQB1 allele frequencies showed that Parsees and Zoroastrians of Iran were located in the same cluster of the phylogenetic tree.

Genetic affinities among Mongol ethnic groups and their relationship to Turks.

The results confirmed the lack of strong genetic relationship between the Mongols and the Turks despite the close relationship of their languages (Altaic group) and shared historical neighborhood.
