Y-Chromosomal Haplotypes in Populations of Central Asia

Y-Chromosomal Haplotypes in Populations of Central Asia The distribution of alleles and haplotypes of three diallellic Y-specific loci (YAP, DYF155S2, and Tat) in the populations of Kyrgyz, Uzbeks and Tajiks was analyzed. In Kyrgyzes and Uzbeks, a relatively high frequency of the DYF155S2 deletion (20 and 12.5%, respectively) and the C allele at the Tat locus (11.2 and 8.3%, respectively) were revealed. In the populations of southern Kyrgyzes and Uzbeks, two chromosomes carrying the YAP+ allele were detected. In both cases the YAP+ allele was found within the YAP+/DYF155S2+/TatT haplotype. The Tajik population was monomorphic in respect to the polymorphisms studied. The Tajiks demonstrated the presence of only the YAP–/DYF155S2+/TatT haplotype. This haplotype appeared to be most frequent in Kyrgyz (78.8%) and Uzbeks (83.3%). The question on the origin and the distribution of Y-chromosome variants in Eurasia are discussed. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

The distribution of alleles and haplotypes of three diallellic Y-specific loci (YAP, DYF155S2, and Tat) in the populations of Kyrgyz, Uzbeks and Tajiks was analyzed. In Kyrgyzes and Uzbeks, a relatively high frequency of the DYF155S2 deletion (20 and 12.5%, respectively) and the C allele at the Tat locus (11.2 and 8.3%, respectively) were revealed. In the populations of southern Kyrgyzes and Uzbeks, two chromosomes carrying the YAP+ allele were detected. In both cases the YAP+ allele was found within the YAP+/DYF155S2+/TatT haplotype. The Tajik population was monomorphic in respect to the polymorphisms studied. The Tajiks demonstrated the presence of only the YAP–/DYF155S2+/TatT haplotype. This haplotype appeared to be most frequent in Kyrgyz (78.8%) and Uzbeks (83.3%). The question on the origin and the distribution of Y-chromosome variants in Eurasia are discussed.
