Movements of human populations leave their traces in the genetic makeup of the areas affected; the same applies to the horses that move with their owners This study is concerned with the mitochondrial control region genotypes of 31 archaeological horse remains, excavated from pre-conquest Avar and post-conquest Hungarian burial sites in the Carpathian Basin dating from the sixth to the tenth century. To investigate relationships to other ancient and recent breeds, modern Hucul and Akhal Teke… Expand
Mitochondrial diversity in mountain horse population from the South-Eastern Europe
TLDR
Analyses of the horse breeds reveal preserved genetic profile of the Balkan and the Rhodopes mountains populations, and a Rila-Pirin breed unexpectedly showed mixed profile – a massive genetic introgression with an Asiatic-type haplogroups. Expand
The origin of Chinese domestic horses revealed with novel mtDNA variants.
TLDR
The results support the hypothesis that the domestic horses in China originated from both the introduced horses from outside of China and the local wild horses' introgression into the domestic populations. Expand
Mitochondrial Profiles of the East Bulgarian and the Pleven Horse Breeds.
TLDR
The East Bulgarian horse showed an unusual, mixed profile-a massive admixture with the Asiatic-type haplogroups Q and a high haplogroup diversity, which may be explained with the various horse breeds involved in their formation. Expand
Genetic characterization and population bottleneck in the Hucul horse based on microsatellite and mitochondrial data
TLDR
Large and significant pairwise ΦST values along with a small number of common haplotypes indicated a low level of gene flow and lack of genetic structure among the three studied breeds (Hucul, Konik, and Przewalski Wild horse). Expand
Genetic diversity of the Hungarian Gidran horse in two mitochondrial DNA markers
TLDR
The key finding was that the Gidran breed still possesses high genetic diversity despite its history, and the obtained haplotypes are mostly consistent with known mare families, particularly when the two mtDNA markers were merged. Expand
Mitochondrial D-loop sequence variation and maternal lineage in the endangered Cleveland Bay horse
TLDR
The Cleveland Bay horse remains one of only five domestic horse breeds classified as Critical on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (UK) Watchlist and the results provide important information on the origins of this breed and represent a valuable tool for conservation purposes. Expand
Mitochondrial D-loop sequence variation and maternal lineage in the endangered Cleveland Bay horse
TLDR
The Cleveland Bay horse remains one of only fivedomestic horse breeds classified as Critical on the Rare Breeds Survival Trust (UK) Watchlist and the results provide important information on the origins of this breed and represent a valuable tool for conservation purposes. Expand
Mitochondrial D-loop sequence variation among Hucul horse
TLDR
Genetic variation in the Czech Hucul horse population was analyzed using a sequence analysis of the D-loop region of mitochondrial DNA, revealing 38 mutation sites representing 14 haplotypes, which were clustered into six haplogroups. Expand
Genetic variability of Akhal-Teke horses bred in Italy
TLDR
Nucleic markers showed a high degree of polymorphism and a low inbreeding level in Italian horses, compared to other AKH populations, and high variability was also recorded in the D-Loop region. Expand
Mitochondrial d-loop variation, coat colour and sex identification of Late Iron Age horses in Switzerland
TLDR
The aim was to characterise the diversity of matrilineages and coat colourations of Iron Age horses, and to identify molecular sex, to establish selection for monochrome animals in modern European breeds. Expand

The origins of Iberian horses assessed via mitochondrial DNA.
TLDR
The results suggest that Northern Iberian ponies--which are phenotypically close to British ponies, especially Exmoor--are the result of an introgression rather than population replacement, which supports the close genetic relationship between the ancestral mare populations of the Iberia Peninsula and Northern Africa. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA and the origins of the domestic horse
TLDR
The extensive genetic diversity of these 77 ancestral mares leads us to conclude that several distinct horse populations were involved in the domestication of the horse. Expand
The Lusitano horse maternal lineage based on mitochondrial D-loop sequence variation.
TLDR
The analysis of mitochondrial D-loop sequences from 145 Lusitano founder mares yielded a total of 27 different haplotypes, which support the hypothesis of multiple domestication events in many distinct geographic areas over a broad time span. Expand

TLDR
It is demonstrated that significant genetic differences exist between the ancient and recent Hungarian-speaking populations, and no genetic continuity is seen. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA of Ancient Cumanians: Culturally Asian Steppe Nomadic Immigrants with Substantially More Western Eurasian Mitochondrial DNA Lineages
TLDR
This study is the first ancient DNA characterization of an eastern pastoral nomad population that migrated into Europe and indicates that, while still possessing a Central Asian steppe culture, the Cumanians received a large admixture of maternal genes from more westerly populations before arriving in Hungary.

Domestication entails control of wild species and is generally regarded as a complex process confined to a restricted area and culture. Previous DNA sequence analyses of several domestic species haveExpand
