AbstractWe have examined variations of five polymorphic loci (DYS287, DXYS5Y, SRY465, DYS19, and DXYS156Y) on the Y chromosome in samples from a total of 1260 males in eight ethnic groups of East Asia. We found four unique haplotypes constructed from three biallelic markers in these samples of East Asians. The Japanese population was characterized by a relatively high frequency of either the haplotype I-2b (−/Y2/T) or II-1 (+/Y1/C). These dual patterns of the distribution of Y chromosomes (I-2b… Expand

Figures, Tables, and Topics from this paper

Y-chromosomal DNA haplogroups and their implications for the dual origins of the Koreans
TLDR
The distribution pattern of Y-chromosomal haplogroups reveals the complex origin of the Koreans, resulting from genetic contributions involving the northern Asian settlement and range expansions mostly from southern-to-northern China. 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
Genetic relationship between Korean and Mongolian populations based on the Y chromosome DNA variation
TLDR
The data on the Y chromosome haplogroup distribution may provide evidence for interaction between Korean and Mongolian populations, but Koreans tend to be much more related with those from southern‐to‐northern populations of China than to Mongolians in east Asia. Expand
High frequencies of Y-chromosome haplogroup O2b-SRY465 lineages in Korea: a genetic perspective on the peopling of Korea
TLDR
The findings are consistent with linguistic, archaeological and historical evidence, which suggest that the direct ancestors of Koreans were proto-Koreans who inhabited the northeastern region of China and the Korean Peninsula during the Neolithic and Bronze Ages. Expand
A preliminary study on the origin of Koreans based on Y-STR variation
TLDR
It is suggested that the most frequent Y-STR haplotype among the Korean male gene pool seems to be the Korean modal (ancestral) haplotype. Expand
Use of autosomal loci for clustering individuals and populations of East Asian origin
TLDR
This study shows that a relatively few highly selected markers can, within limits, differentiate between closely related populations. Expand
Two Y-chromosome-specific polymorphisms 12f2 and DFFRY in the Japanese population and their relations to other Y-polymorphisms.
TLDR
The findings suggested that linkage studies between Y-specific markers are helpful in understanding the migratory patterns in East Asia and suggested that Japanese males have characteristically different Y-chromosomes compared with other populations. Expand
Phylogenetic analysis of two haploid markers of 500-years-old human remains found in a central region of Korea
TLDR
It was found that the vicinal burial of the Koreans seemed to be related matrilineally or patrilinesally to the remains, consistent with previous reports that the peopling of Korea is likely to have involved multiple sources. Expand
Identification of novel allele on the locus 47z (DXYS5) in the Korean population
TLDR
Using the 47z/StuI PCR-RFLP system, a novel allele is found which showed two bands, in contrast to the previous two allele types, one band (Y1) and three bands (Y2), implying that the DXYS5X locus of the X chromosome is polymorphic. Expand
Y-chromosomal STR haplotypes and their applications to forensic and population studies in east Asia
TLDR
Analysis of Y-STR loci in 700 males from ten ethnic groups in east Asia revealed clustering according to the traditional northeast–southeast distinction, but with exceptions. Expand

Y chromosomal DNA variation and the peopling of Japan.
TLDR
Four loci mapping to the nonrecombining portion of the Y chromosome were genotyped in Japanese populations from Okinawa, the southernmost island of Japan; Shizuoka and Aomori on the main island of Honshu; and a small sample of Taiwanese, confirming the irregular distribution of this polymorphism in Asia. Expand
Genetic variations on the Y chromosome in the Japanese population and implications for modern human Y chromosome lineage
TLDR
The haplotype analysis of the Y chromosome may contribute to the exploration of the origin of Japanese and the relationship between east Asian populations. Expand
PCR-Based Polymorphic Analysis for the Y Chromosomal Loci DYS19 and DXYS5Y (47z) in the Korean Population
TLDR
The genetic similarity between Korean and Japanese populations may be due to the large infusion of Y chromosomes through the Yayoi migration starting 2,300 years ago from Korea to Japan. Expand
Y-Specific DNA polymorphisms of the YAP element and the locus DYS19 in the Korean population
TLDR
Based on results of these two loci, Japanese and Korean populations may share some common genetic structure that could reflect recent gene flow and some amount of admixture of Y chromosomes between these two populations. Expand

A population genetic study was undertaken to investigate the origin of Koreans. Thirteen polymorphic and 7 monomorphic blood genetic markers (serum proteins and red cell enzymes) were studied in aExpand
Mitochondrial DNA polymorphism among five Asian populations.
TLDR
Aeta was found to show a relatively close relationship to these three populations, confirming the conclusion from previous studies of blood markers, and Vedda was quite different from the other four populations. Expand
A Y-associated allele is shared among a few ethnic groups of Asia
TLDR
Observations were extended to other ethnic groups in East Asia and it is tempting to speculate that the Y2 allele may be originated from an ancestral population in Henan from which, Japanese, Koreans, and some of the Taiwanese diverged. Expand
Ancestral Asian source(s) of new world Y-chromosome founder haplotypes.
TLDR
The contrasting distribution patterns of the two major candidate founder haplotypes in Asia and the New World, as well as the results of a nested cladistic analysis, suggest the possibility of more than one paternal migration from the general region of Lake Baikal to the Americas. Expand
The geographic distribution of human Y chromosome variation.
TLDR
Variation on the nonrecombining portion of the human Y chromosome is examined to investigate human evolution during the last 200,000 years, compatible with a variety of hypotheses, including multiple human migrations and range expansions. Expand
Distribution of the 9-bp deletion in COII/tRNA^ intergenic region of mitochondrial DNA is relatively homogeneous in east Asian populations
TLDR
Results indicate Koreans are genetically related to northeast Asian populations, and have a maternal mongoloid ancestry, and the 9-bp deletion of the intergenic COII/ region will provide significant information to elucidate the historical patterns of migration of the Mongoloids. Expand
