ABSTRACT Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variability was studied in a sample of 179 individuals representing the Czech population of Western Bohemia. Sequencing of two hypervariable segments, HVS I and HVS II, in combination with screening of coding-region haplogroup-specific RFLP markers revealed that most Czech mtDNAs belong to the common West Eurasian mitochondrial haplogroups (H, pre-V, HV*, J, T, U, N1, W, and X). However, about 3% of Czech mtDNAs encompass East Eurasian lineages (A, N9a, D4, M… Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Variability in Slovaks, with Application to the Roma Origin
TLDR
It is demonstrated here that the Roma‐specific M‐lineages observed in gene pools of different Slavonic populations (Slovaks, Poles and Russians), belong to Indian‐specific haplogroups M5a1 and M35. Expand
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. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA perspective of Serbian genetic diversity.
TLDR
Serbian population was characterized as an important link between easternmost and westernmost south-Slavic populations due to the observed lack of genetic differentiation with all other south- Slovic populations and its geographical positioning within the Balkan Peninsula. Expand
Complete Mitochondrial DNA Analysis of Eastern Eurasian Haplogroups Rarely Found in Populations of Northern Asia and Eastern Europe
TLDR
The findings confirm the previous conclusion that northern Asian maternal gene pool consists of predominantly post- LGM components of eastern Asian ancestry, though some genetic lineages may have a pre-LGM/LGM origin. Expand
Reconstructing the phylogeny of African mitochondrial DNA lineages in Slavs
TLDR
Results of phylogeographic analysis suggest that at least part of the African mtDNA lineages found in Slavs appears to be of West African origin, testifying to an opportunity of their occurrence as a result of migrations to Eastern Europe through Iberia. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variation in an isolated area of Central Italy
TLDR
The high degree of differentiation between the two villages is intriguing, since it suggests a low level of gene flow between them, despite their close geographic proximity and shared linguistic features. Expand
Mitogenomic diversity in Tatars from the Volga-Ural region of Russia.
TLDR
It was found that mitochondrial gene pool of the Volga Tatars consists of two parts, but western Eurasian component prevails considerably (84% on average) over eastern Asian one, thus suggesting re-expansion of eastern Europeans soon after the Last Glacial Maximum. Expand
MtDNA variation in three main ethnic groups in Tuzla Canton of Bosnia and Herzegovina
This study was based on the analysis of mtDNA polymorphisms in three ethnic groups of Tuzla Canton of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Bosniaks, Croats and Serbs). The main aim of this study was to analyzeExpand
Distribution of East Eurasian Y-Chromosome and Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups across Eurasia: Insights into the Genetic Ancestry of Bulgarians
TLDR
The present study confirms the nonexistence of a close Y-chromosomal or mtDNA link between proto-Bulgarians on the one hand and Altaic and Caucasus populations on the other. Expand
HVS-I polymorphism screening of ancient human mitochondrial DNA provides evidence for N9a discontinuity and East Asian haplogroups in the Neolithic Hungary
TLDR
This investigation is the first to study mutations form Neolithic of Hungary, resulting in an outcome of Far Eastern haplogroups in the Carpathian Basin. Expand

Mitochondrial DNA Variations in Russian and Belorussian Populations
TLDR
Data of this study support the proposed model of the origin of modern Eastern Slavs, which implies the admixture of ancient Slavonic tribes with pre-Slavonic populations of Eastern Europe, and should contribute to general studies of mitochondrial DNA variations in Europe. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA Variability in Bosnians and Slovenians
TLDR
The observed differentiation between Bosnian and Slovenian mtDNAs suggests that at least two different migration waves of the Slavs may have reached the Balkans in the early Middle Ages. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA variability in Russians and Ukrainians: Implication to the origin of the Eastern Slavs
TLDR
It is concluded that the Slavonic migrations in early Middle Ages from their putative homeland in central Europe to the east of Europe were accompanied mostly by the same mtDNA types characteristic for the pre‐Slavonic populations of eastern Europe. Expand
Diversity of Mitochondrial DNA Haplogroups in Ethnic Populations of the Volga–Ural Region
TLDR
Finno-Ugric populations of the region proved to be more similar to their Turkic neighbors rather than to linguistically related Balto-Finnish ethnic groups as concerns the maternal lineage. Expand
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. Expand
Classification of European mtDNAs from an analysis of three European populations.
TLDR
The conclusion that most haplogroups observed in Europe are Caucasoid-specific, and that at least some of them occur at varying frequencies in different Caucasoid populations, is supported. Expand
Diversity of Mitochondrial DNA Lineages in South Siberia
TLDR
The considerable substructure within South Siberian haplogroups B, F, and G, together with the high degree of haplogroup C and D diversity revealed there, allows us to conclude that South Siberians carry the genetic imprint of early‐colonization phase of Eurasia. Expand
Mitochondrial diversity of a northeast German population sample.
TLDR
The results may indicate that despite a high admixture proportion in the German population some regions could demonstrate certain characteristic features, including the most frequent haplotype in northeast Germany. Expand

The results may indicate that despite a high admixture proportion in the German population some regions could demonstrate certain characteristic features, including the most frequent haplotype in northeast Germany. Expand
Differentiation of Mitochondrial DNA and Y Chromosomes in Russian Populations
TLDR
There is a discrepancy in the depth of penetration of mtDNA and Y-chromosome lineages characteristic for the most southwestern Russian populations into the east and north of eastern Europe appears to indicate that Russian colonization of the northeastern territories might have been accomplished mainly by males rather than by females.
