To characterize the mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) variation in Han Chinese from several provinces of China, we have sequenced the two hypervariable segments of the control region and the segment spanning nucleotide positions 10171-10659 of the coding region, and we have identified a number of specific coding-region mutations by direct sequencing or restriction-fragment-length-polymorphism tests. This allows us to define new haplogroups (clades of the mtDNA phylogeny) and to dissect the Han mtDNA… Expand
Analysis of mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms in Guangdong Han Chinese.
TLDR
To get more insights into the maternal makeup of southern Han Chinese, mtDNA variation of a total of 106 individuals sampled from Dongguan, Guangdong Province, China, was analyzed and the phylogenetic status of all mtDNAs under examination were determined according to the reconstructed East Asian mtDNA tree. Expand
Large-scale mtDNA screening reveals a surprising matrilineal complexity in east Asia and its implications to the peopling of the region.
TLDR
The enrichment of most of the basal lineages in southern China and their rather ancient ages in Late Pleistocene suggested that this region was likely the genetic reservoir of modern humans after they entered East Asia and supported the Southern Route peopling hypothesis of East Asians. Expand
Reconstructing the evolutionary history of China: a caveat about inferences drawn from ancient DNA.
TLDR
The results highlight that ancient mtDNA data obtained under different sampling schemes and subject to potential contamination can easily create the impression of drastic spatiotemporal changes in the genetic structure of a regional population during the past few thousand years if inappropriate methods of data analysis are employed. Expand
Phylogeographic analysis of mitochondrial DNA in northern Asian populations.
TLDR
The findings indicate that the southern Siberian mtDNA pool harbors several lineages associated with the Late Upper Paleolithic and/or early Neolithic dispersals from both eastern Asia and southwestern Asia/southern Caucasus. Expand
Characterization of mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms in the Han population in Liaoning Province, Northeast China
TLDR
The principal component analysis map, the phylogenetic tree map, and the genetic distance matrix all indicated that the geneticdistance of the Liaoning Han population from the Tibetan group was distant, whereas that from the Miao group was relatively close. Expand
Mitochondrial genome variation in eastern Asia and the peopling of Japan.
TLDR
Population-based comparisons confirmed that present-day Japanese have their closest genetic affinity to northern Asian populations, especially to Koreans, which finding is congruent with the proposed Continental gene flow to Japan after the Yayoi period. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA sequence polymorphisms of five ethnic populations from northern China
TLDR
The haplogroup distribution frequencies varied in the five ethnic populations, but in general they all harbored a large amount of north-prevalent haplogroups, such as D, G, C, and Z, and thus were in agreement with their ethnohistory of northern origin. Expand
Phylogeographic analysis of mtDNA variation in four ethnic populations from Yunnan Province: new data and a reappraisal
TLDR
The results suggest that more attention should be paid to sampling methodology when addressing the genetic relationship and affinity among ethnic populations, and comparison of related data from different labs may serve as a check for the credibility of the data and help discern the origin of the ethnic populations. Expand
Phylogeographic analysis of mitochondrial DNA haplogroup F2 in China reveals T12338C in the initiation codon of the ND5 gene not to be pathogenic
TLDR
The T12338C nucleotide substitution seems to have been occurred in north China about 42,000 years ago, and provided a good paradigm for distinguishing a polymorphic change from a pathogenic mutation based on mtDNA phylogeny. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA haplogroups and homogeneity in the Korean population
TLDR
The distribution of mtDNA haplogroup variation using a 20-plex SNaPshot assay for determination of the major East Asian haplogroups was analyzed to evaluate the possible genetic structure and differentiation from 708 unrelated individuals residing in six major provinces in Korea. Expand

Mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms in Yunnan nationalities in China
TLDR
Genetic distances revealed that the Dai, Wa, Lahu, and Han Chinese are closely related to each other, while Tibetan and mainland Japanese formed a single cluster, which may shed light on the origins of mainland Japanese. Expand
Phylogenetic network for European mtDNA.
TLDR
The nucleotide sequence in the coding region of mtDNA was determined from 121 Finns, by conformation-sensitive gel electrophoresis and subsequent sequencing and by direct sequencing of the D loop, which allowed the compilation of unambiguous phylogenetic networks. Expand
The emerging tree of West Eurasian mtDNAs: a synthesis of control-region sequences and RFLPs.
TLDR
It is shown that the main indigenous North African cluster is a sister group to the most ancient cluster of European mtDNAs, from which it diverged approximately 50,000 years ago. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA analysis in Tibet: implications for the origin of the Tibetan population and its adaptation to high altitude.
TLDR
It is suggested that mtDNA mutations are unlikely to play a major role in the adaptation of Tibetans to high altitudes and is supportive of previous genetic evidence that Tibetans, although located in southern Asia, share common ancestral origins with northern Mongoloid populations. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms in Thailand
TLDR
The D-loop sequences variation, and phylogenetic analysis, suggested that the 9-bp deletion had occurred in a very ancient ancestry of Southeast Asians, although multiple origins of the deletion cannot be ruled out. Expand
mtDNA polymorphism in East Asian Populations, with special reference to the peopling of Japan.
TLDR
The results of this study are compatible with the hybridization model on the origin of modern Japanese, and it is suggested that approximately 65% of the gene pool in mainland Japanese was derived from the continental gene flow after the Yayoi Age. Expand
Evolutionary history of the mtDNA 9-bp deletion in Chinese populations and its relevance to the peopling of east and southeast Asia
TLDR
Phylogenetic and demographic analyses of the mtDNA hypervariable segment 1 (HVS1) sequences suggest that the 9-bp deletion occurred more than once in China, and HVS1 haplotype analysis suggests two possible migration routes of the 9 -bp deletion in east and southeast Asia. Expand
Mitochondrial genome variation and the origin of modern humans
TLDR
The global mtDNA diversity in humans is described based on analyses of the complete mtDNA sequence of 53 humans of diverse origins, providing a concurrent view on human evolution with respect to the age of modern humans. Expand
Phylogeography of mitochondrial DNA in western Europe
TLDR
A cladistic notation for mitochondrial variation is described and analysis is expanded upon to present a more detailed portrait of the European mitochondrial record, suggesting that most extant mitochondrial sequences in western Europe have a local ancestry in the Early Upper Palaeolithic. Expand
Sequence polymorphism of mitochondrial D-loop DNA in the Taiwanese Han population.
TLDR
The diversity in the mitochondrial D-loop indicates the value of this locus for casework within Taiwan, and among these haplotypes, 149 different haplotypes were observed, amongst these haplotype, 144 were unique, 4 were found in 2 individuals and 1 was found in 3 individuals. Expand
