We determine the phylogenetic backbone of the East Asian mtDNA tree by using published complete mtDNA sequences and assessing both coding and control region variation in 69 Han individuals from southern China. This approach assists in the interpretation of published mtDNA data on East Asians based on either control region sequencing or restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) typing. Our results confirm that the East Asian mtDNA pool is locally region-specific and completely covered by… Expand
Updating the East Asian mtDNA phylogeny: a prerequisite for the identification of pathogenic mutations.
TLDR
A reassessment of the mtDNA data from a series of disease studies testified to the usefulness of such a refined mtDNA tree in evaluating the pathogenicity of mtDNA mutations and a guideline based on the phylogenetic knowledge as proposed here could help avoiding similar problems in the future. 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
Mitochondrial DNA diversity and population differentiation in southern East Asia.
TLDR
It is concluded that modern humans have lived in South China for a long time, inside-ethnogenesis was a rather late event, and frequent inmixing was taking place throughout. 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
Ancient mitochondrial DNA from Malaysian hair samples: Some indications of Southeast Asian population movements

  • 2006
TLDR
This study provides new data on mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) lineages of the aboriginal inhabitants of the Malay Peninsula, and through an extensive comparison to the known mtDNA diversity in Southeast and East Asia, provides some new insights into the origins and historical geography of certain mtDNA lineages in the region. 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
Genetic structure of Hmong-Mien speaking populations in East Asia as revealed by mtDNA lineages.

TLDR
The results indicate that the Hmong populations had experienced more contact with the northern East Asians, a finding consistent with historical evidence. Expand
Origin and diffusion of mtDNA haplogroup X.
TLDR
The position of X2a in the phylogenetic tree suggests an early split from the other X2 clades, likely at the very beginning of their expansion and spread from the Near East. Expand
The Peopling of Korea Revealed by Analyses of Mitochondrial DNA and Y-Chromosomal Markers
TLDR
Evidence is provided that peopling of Korea can be seen as a complex process, interpreted as an early northern Asian settlement with at least one subsequent male-biased southern-to-northern migration, possibly associated with the spread of rice agriculture. Expand
Mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms in Gelao ethnic group residing in Southwest China.
TLDR
Haplogroup distribution indicates that the Gelao bears signatures of southern populations and possesses some regional characters, and demonstrates the complexity of Gelao population and the data can well supplement the China mtDNA database. Expand

Phylogeographic differentiation of mitochondrial DNA in Han Chinese.
TLDR
These and other features of the geographical distribution of the mtDNA haplogroups observed in the Han Chinese make an initial Paleolithic colonization from south to north plausible but would suggest subsequent migration events in China that mainly proceeded from north to south and east to west. 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
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
Phylogenetic star contraction applied to Asian and Papuan mtDNA evolution.
TLDR
A novel star contraction algorithm is presented here which rigorously identifies starlike nodes (clusters) diagnostic of prehistoric demographic expansions of East Asian and Papuan lineages. Expand
Asian affinities and continental radiation of the four founding Native American mtDNAs.
TLDR
Observations suggest that the process of tribalization began early in the history of the Amerinds, with relatively little intertribal genetic exchange occurring subsequently. Expand
Traces of early Eurasians in the Mansi of northwest Siberia revealed by mitochondrial DNA analysis.
TLDR
The added presence of eastern Eurasian mtDNA lineages in the Mansi introduces the possibilities that proto-Eurasians encompassed a range of macrohaplogroup M and N lineages that subsequently became geographically distributed and that the Paleolithic expansion may have reached this part of Siberia before it split into western and eastern human groups.

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
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. 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
mtDNA variation of aboriginal Siberians reveals distinct genetic affinities with Native Americans.
TLDR
The hypothesis that the first humans to move from Siberia to the Americas carried with them a limited number of founding mtDNAs is supported and that the initial migration occurred between 17,000-34,000 years before present. Expand
