BackgroundThe phylogeographic distribution of human mitochondrial DNA variations allows a genetic approach to the study of modern Homo sapiens dispersals throughout the world from a female perspective. As a new contribution to this study we have phylogenetically analysed complete mitochondrial DNA(mtDNA) sequences from 42 human lineages, representing major clades with known geographic assignation.ResultsWe show the relative relationships among the 42 lineages and present more accurate temporal… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

60,000 years of interactions between Central and Eastern Africa documented by major African mitochondrial haplogroup L2
TLDR
Recon reconstructing the phylogeny of L2 provides insights on the complex net of within-African migrations in the last 60 thousand years, showing that lineages in Southern Africa cluster with Western/Central African lineages at a recent time scale, whereas, eastern lineages seem to be substantially more ancient. Expand
The history of the North African mitochondrial DNA haplogroup U6 gene flow into the African, Eurasian and American continents
TLDR
The U6 expansions and contractions inside Africa faithfully reflect the climatic fluctuations that occurred in this Continent affecting also the Canary Islands, leaving the specific sign of the colonizers origin. Expand
Carriers of Mitochondrial DNA Macrohaplogroup N Lineages Reached Australia around 50,000 Years Ago following a Northern Asian Route
TLDR
Apart from a single migration event via a southern route, phylogeny and phylogeography of N(xR) lineages support that people carrying mtDNA N lineages could have reach Australia following a northern route through Asia. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA transit between West Asia and North Africa inferred from U6 phylogeography
TLDR
The most probable origin of the proto-U6 lineage was the Near East, and around 30,000 years ago it spread to North Africa where it represents a signature of regional continuity. Expand
Carriers of mitochondrial DNA macrohaplogroup L3 basal lineages migrated back to Africa from Asia around 70,000 years ago
TLDR
The possibility that mtDNA macrohaplogroup L3 matured in Eurasia and returned to Africa as basal L3 lineages around 70 kya is assessed, congruent with a model proposing an out-of-Africa migration into Asia, following a northern route, of early anatomically modern humans carrying pre-L3 mtDNA lineages. Expand
Carriers of mitochondrial DNA macrohaplogroup L3 basic lineages migrated back to Africa from Asia around 70,000 years ago
TLDR
The possibility that mtDNA macrohaplogroup L3 matured in Eurasia and returned to Africa as basic L3 lineages around 70 kya is assessed, congruent with a model proposing an out-of-Africa of early anatomically modern humans around 125 kya. Expand

The mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) genetic system has long proven to be useful for studying the demographic history of our species, since their proposed Southeast/East African origin 200 kya. Despite theExpand
The making of the African mtDNA landscape.
TLDR
The results suggest that the southeast Bantu speakers have a composite origin on the maternal line of descent, with approximately 44% of lineages deriving from West Africa, approximately 21% from either West or Central Africa, Approximately 30% from East Africa, and approximately 5% from southern African Khoisan-speaking groups. Expand
Carriers of human mitochondrial DNA macrohaplogroup M colonized India from southeastern Asia
TLDR
A new and more conciliatory model is constructed to explain the history of modern humans out of Africa by reanalyzing the phylogeography and respective ages of mtDNA haplogroups belonging to macrohaplogroup M in different regions of Eurasia and Australasia. Expand
Mitochondrial lineage M1 traces an early human backflow to Africa
TLDR
This study provides evidence that M1, or its ancestor, had an Asiatic origin, and a relevant fraction of M1a lineages present today in the European Continent and nearby islands possibly had a Jewish instead of the commonly proposed Arab/Berber maternal ascendance. Expand

Mitochondrial footprints of human expansions in Africa.
TLDR
Eurasian sequences are derived from essentially one sequence within this ancient cluster, even though a diverse mitochondrial pool was present in Africa at the time. Expand
Genetic evidence of an early exit of Homo sapiens sapiens from Africa through eastern Africa
TLDR
M is rendered the first genetic indicator for the hypothesized exit route from Africa through eastern Africa/western India, possibly the only successful early dispersal event of modern humans out of Africa. Expand
THE PLACE OF THE INDIAN MITOCHONDRIAL DNA VARIANTS IN THE GLOBAL NETWORK OF MATERNAL LINEAGES AND THE PEOPLING OF THE OLD WORLD
TLDR
Coalescence estimates, calculated locally for these three major clusters in India, indicate a major radiation of mtDNA lin­ eages starting approximately 50,000 years ago, which clearly supports the African origin of modem humans. Expand
Tracing European founder lineages in the Near Eastern mtDNA pool.
TLDR
There has been substantial back-migration into the Near East, there was a founder effect or bottleneck associated with the Last Glacial Maximum, 20,000 years ago, and a way to account for multiple dispersals of common sequence types is suggested. Expand
Deep common ancestry of Indian and western-Eurasian mitochondrial DNA lineages
TLDR
An extensive deep late Pleistocene genetic link between contemporary Europeans and Indians is found, provided by the mtDNA haplogroup U, which encompasses roughly a fifth of mtDNA lineages of both populations. Expand
Archaic lineages in the history of modern humans.
TLDR
It is proposed that African chromosomes descend from at least two lineages that have been evolving separately for a period of time, one of them underwent range expansion colonizing different continents, including Africa, where it mixed with another, local lineage represented today by a large fraction of African-specific haplotypes. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA analysis of Northwest African populations reveals genetic exchanges with European, Near‐Eastern, and sub‐Saharan populations
TLDR
A certain mtDNA motif (16172C, 16219G), previously found in Algerian Berbers at high frequency, is apparently omnipresent in Northwest Africa and may reflect regional continuity of more than 20000 years. Expand
Out of Africa and back again: nested cladistic analysis of human Y chromosome variation.
TLDR
It is inferred that one of the oldest events in the nested cladistic analysis was a range expansion out of Africa which resulted in the complete replacement of Y chromosomes throughout the Old World, a finding consistent with many versions of the Out of Africa Replacement Model. Expand
The origins of the Polynesians: an interpretation from mitochondrial lineage analysis.
TLDR
It is shown that the major prehistoric settlement of Polynesia was from the west and involved two or possibly three genetically distinct populations, and two Polynesians had unrelated haplotypes matching published sequences from native South Americans, which may be the first genetic evidence of prehistoric human contact between Polynesia and South America. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA analysis of Mongolian populations and implications for the origin of New World founders.
TLDR
It is proposed that indigenous populations in east Central Asia represent the closest genetic link between Old and New World populations and is likely that founder effects manifest throughout Asia and the Americas are responsible for differences in mtDNA haplotype frequencies observed in these regions.
