Genetic diversity of Besermyans inferred from mitochondrial DNA polymorphism

Genetic diversity of Besermyans inferred from mitochondrial DNA polymorphism The first data are presented on mtDNA diversity in Besermyans, the Finno-Ugric ethnic group related to Udmurts. An analysis of mtDNA polymorphism showed that Besermyans stood out from the other populations of Volga-Ural region due to the presence of a large proportion of the Mongoloid component. The sample of Besermyans contained East Eurasian haplotypes not detected in ethnic populations of the Volga region and Cisurals, while they were detected in South Siberia, mostly among Turkic-speaking populations. An analysis of the genetic distances between Besermyans and the neighboring ethnic groups showed that Besermyans were distant from other populations of Volga-Ural region and close to Turkic-speaking populations of South Siberia. Thus, the data obtained favor the suggestion on the mixed Udmurto-Turkic origin of Besermyans. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

The first data are presented on mtDNA diversity in Besermyans, the Finno-Ugric ethnic group related to Udmurts. An analysis of mtDNA polymorphism showed that Besermyans stood out from the other populations of Volga-Ural region due to the presence of a large proportion of the Mongoloid component. The sample of Besermyans contained East Eurasian haplotypes not detected in ethnic populations of the Volga region and Cisurals, while they were detected in South Siberia, mostly among Turkic-speaking populations. An analysis of the genetic distances between Besermyans and the neighboring ethnic groups showed that Besermyans were distant from other populations of Volga-Ural region and close to Turkic-speaking populations of South Siberia. Thus, the data obtained favor the suggestion on the mixed Udmurto-Turkic origin of Besermyans.
