Amerindian Mapuche (Araucanians) are now living in Chile and Argentina at both sides of Andean Mountains. They are anthropologically and genetically different from southernmost South America Patagonian Amerindians. Most of the HLA alleles found in our Mapuche sample are frequent or very frequent in North and South America Amerindians: (1) Class I: A*02:01, A*03:01, A*68:01, B*39:09, B*51:01, (2) Class II: DRB1*03:01, DRB1*04:03, DRB1*07:01, DRB1*08:02, DRB1*14:02, DRB1*16:02. One of the nine…

Frequencies and significance of HLA genes in Amerindians from Chile Cañete Mapuche.
TLDR
A group of Chilean Mapuche Amerindians was studied for HLA genes using standard techniques, finding relatedness of First America Inhabitants with some Pacific Islanders is stressed.
Mixtec Mexican Amerindians: an HLA Alleles Study for America Peopling, Pharmacogenomics and Transplantation
TLDR
The results of the Mixtec Mexican Amerindian population study are useful for establishing a future area transplantation waiting list, for the study of HLA linked diseases epidemiology and for pharmacogenomics in certain drug therapy.
Pacific Islanders and Amerindian relatedness according to HLA autosomal genes
Americas peopling has recently been explained based only on genetic data. While different First America inhabitants’ ethnic groups, Amerindians, Na-Dene speakers, Aleuts and Eskimo there exist, there
Genetic diversity of the HLA system in human populations from the Sierra (Andean), Oriente (Amazonian) and Costa (Coastal) regions of Ecuador.
TLDR
It is found that the most frequent HLA haplotypes with significant linkage disequilibrium in those populations are HLA-A, and these findings provide a starting point for the study of population immunogenetics of Ecuadorian populations.
HLA‐A, B, C and DRB1 alleles in a Chilean population from Talca
TLDR
The history of Talca has been characterized by its ethnic and cultural diversity, which increased its cultural pluralism thanks to the presence of European and African populations, plus the different groups that resulted from the genetic exchange as mestizos, sambos and mulattos.
Analysis of androgenetic alopecia in Amerindian people (Mapuche) from southern Chile
TLDR
A lower percentage of AGA in Chilean Mapuche compared to Caucasians, but it was higher than Asians, which may reflect the genetic admixture in the racial origins of the study group.
HLA-DRB1*07:01 and *08:02 Alleles Confer a Protective Effect Against ACPA-Positive Rheumatoid Arthritis in a Latin American Admixed Population
TLDR
The results seem to support the existence of differentiated genomic patterns in Chilean, and probably other Latin American populations, that are not the same that the found in Europeans regarding to loci repeatedly involved in rheumatoid arthritis.
Pharmacogenetics in Central American healthy volunteers: interethnic variability
TLDR
Differences in the frequency of some pharmacogenetic biomarkers and metabolic phenotypes were found, showing interethnic variability within Central American and with other Latin American populations.

HLA genes in Wayu Amerindians from Colombia
TLDR
The Wayu HLA profile is typical from Amerindians and shows how languages and genes do not correlated particularly in this case (i.e., Wayu closest HLA genetic group is North Argentinian Guarani group).
HLA genes in Lamas Peruvian-Amazonian Amerindians.
The Lamas Amerindians are the Chancas descents who established before 1532 a.d. (Spanish conquest) at Lamas City, Wayku quarter in a Peruvian-Amazonian province (San Martin). The Lamas HLA profile
HLA in Jaidukama: an Amerindian secluded Colombian population with new haplotypes and Asian and Pacific-shared alleles
TLDR
This unique model of Amerindian secluded families study suggests that rapid HLA haplotype variation may be more important than allele variation for survival (starting immune responses) and may also be useful for future transplant programs in the area.
Origin of Mayans according to HLA genes and the uniqueness of Amerindians.
TLDR
The HLA allele frequency distribution of the Mayans from Guatemala was studied and compared with those of other First American Natives and worldwide populations; the closest Amerindian group to Mayans is the Arhuacs, who were the first recorded Caribbean Islands' inhabitants.
HLA genes in Mexican Mazatecans, the peopling of the Americas and the uniqueness of Amerindians.
TLDR
An indirect evidence of Olmec and Mayan relatedness is suggested, further supporting the notion that Olmecas may have been the precursors of Mayans and language and genetics do not completely correlate in microenvironmental studies.
Origin of Mexican Nahuas (Aztecs) according to HLA genes and their relationships with worldwide populations.
TLDR
The genetic distances and correspondence analyses clearly show that the Nahua Aztec isolated group is genetically close to some of the most ancient groups living in Mexico, which suggests that Nahua language (Nahuatl) may have been imposed to scattered groups throughout Mexico.
HLA-DRB1 alleles in four Amerindian populations from Argentina and Paraguay
TLDR
It can be inferred that the biological affinities observed are in concordance with the geographic distributions and interethnic relations established among the groups studied.
The peopling of Madeira archipelago (Portugal) according to HLA genes
TLDR
Quantitatively, Portuguese, North Africans (Algerians), Spaniards and Canary Islanders are the most important parental populations to Madeirans, suggesting that Guanche (Canary Islands first inhabitants) slaves gene flow is still noticed at present, both in Madeira and in Canary Islands populations.
HLA in the Azores Archipelago: possible presence of Mongoloid genes.
TLDR
The results indicate that the Azorean population most likely contains an admixture of high-frequency Caucasoid, Mongoloid and, to a lesser degree, Negroid HLA genes.
Origin of Aymaras from Bolivia and their relationship with other Amerindians according to HLA genes.
TLDR
It is observed a closer relatedness of Aymaras with Amerindians from the Amazon Basin and Chaco lowlands, compared to Quechuans, and seems to present an HLA-DRB1*0901 high frequency.
