Analysis of Ethnogeographic Groups of Kazakhs Based on Nuclear Genome DNA Polymorphism

Analysis of Ethnogeographic Groups of Kazakhs Based on Nuclear Genome DNA Polymorphism Eight nuclear DNA loci, including six Alu insertions (ACE, APOA1, PV92, TPA25, Ya5NBC27, and Ya5NBC148), 32-bp deletion in the CCR5 gene, and VNTR locus at the eNOS gene, were examined in three ethnogeographic groups of Kazakhs (342 individuals). The individuals examined lived in southeastern, central, and southwestern regions of Kazakhstan, and according to their tribal attribution, belonged to the Senior, Middle, and Junior Zhuzes. The Alu insertions appeared to be polymorphic in all populations examined: the insertion frequency varied from 0.264 in the populations of the Senior and Middle Zhuzes at the Ya5NBC27 and Ya5NBC148 loci, to 0.827 in Kazakhs of the Middle Zhuz at the APOA1 locus. In Kazakh groups examined only two alleles of the eNOS VNTR locus were detected with the number of repeats constituting four (A) and five (B) copies. The highest frequency of A allele was found in Kazakhs from the Junior Zhuz (0.113), while the highest frequency of B allele was detected in population of the Senior Zhuz (0.893). The frequency of the 32-bp deletion in the chemokine receptor CCR5 gene varied from 0.027 in the Junior Zhuz to 0.045 in the Senior Zhuz. Kazakhs showed high genetic diversity (H ex = 0.376). In general, in three ethnogeographic groups of Kazakhs, the coefficient of gene differentiation (G ST) over eight diallelic markers of nuclear genome constituted 1.1%. The differences in the Alu insertions made the highest contribution to the among-population diversity (G ST = 1.2%). http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Eight nuclear DNA loci, including six Alu insertions (ACE, APOA1, PV92, TPA25, Ya5NBC27, and Ya5NBC148), 32-bp deletion in the CCR5 gene, and VNTR locus at the eNOS gene, were examined in three ethnogeographic groups of Kazakhs (342 individuals). The individuals examined lived in southeastern, central, and southwestern regions of Kazakhstan, and according to their tribal attribution, belonged to the Senior, Middle, and Junior Zhuzes. The Alu insertions appeared to be polymorphic in all populations examined: the insertion frequency varied from 0.264 in the populations of the Senior and Middle Zhuzes at the Ya5NBC27 and Ya5NBC148 loci, to 0.827 in Kazakhs of the Middle Zhuz at the APOA1 locus. In Kazakh groups examined only two alleles of the eNOS VNTR locus were detected with the number of repeats constituting four (A) and five (B) copies. The highest frequency of A allele was found in Kazakhs from the Junior Zhuz (0.113), while the highest frequency of B allele was detected in population of the Senior Zhuz (0.893). The frequency of the 32-bp deletion in the chemokine receptor CCR5 gene varied from 0.027 in the Junior Zhuz to 0.045 in the Senior Zhuz. Kazakhs showed high genetic diversity (H ex = 0.376). In general, in three ethnogeographic groups of Kazakhs, the coefficient of gene differentiation (G ST) over eight diallelic markers of nuclear genome constituted 1.1%. The differences in the Alu insertions made the highest contribution to the among-population diversity (G ST = 1.2%).
