*  SLC45A2 and human skin color - Gene Expression

We previously reported significant associations of two coding region polymorphisms with hair, skin, and eye color in Caucasians. Here we characterize the promoter region of MATP [SLC45A2] identifying two new transcription start sites and a novel duplication…A total of 700 individuals from five different population groups (529 Caucasians, 38 Asians, 46 African Americans, 47 Australian Aborigines, and 40 Spanish Basques) were genotyped for known promoter polymorphisms…Allele frequencies of all three polymorphisms were significantly different between population groups. In Caucasians, the -1721G, +dup, and -1169A alleles were significantly associated with olive skin color. The three promoter polymorphisms were found to be in linkage disequilibrium with each other but not with the two previously reported coding region polymorphisms. Functional analyses in a melanoma cell line showed that the promoter haplotype -1721G, +dup, -1169A significantly decreased MATP transcription. This report provides ...

*  Dienekes' Anthropology Blog: Thomas Jefferson's Y chromosome

1% of chromosomes worldwide, and most common in East Africa and the Middle East. Phylogenetic network analysis of its Y-STR (short tandem repeat) haplotype shows that it is most closely related to an Egyptian K2 haplotype, but the presence of scattered and diverse European haplotypes within the network is nonetheless consistent with Jefferson's patrilineage belonging to an ancient and rare indigenous European type. This is supported by the observation that two of 85 unrelated British men sharing the surname Jefferson also share the President's Y-STR haplotype within haplogroup K2. Our findings represent a cautionary tale in showing the difficulty of assigning individual ancestry based on a Y-chromosome haplotype, particularly for rare lineages where population data are scarce ...

*  Preventing Inbreeding | Science Signaling

It is not uncommon for plants to fertilize themselves. However, several species of Brassica reject their own pollen and are self-incompatible. Self-incompatibility is controlled by the highly polymorphic S locus, which contains two genes that encode the S receptor kinase (SRK) and S locus glycoprotein (SLG). Takasaki et al. transfected self-incompatible plants (bearing the S60 or S52/60 haplotypes) with SRK or SLG (bearing the S28 haplotype) separately and determined that the expression of SRK28 alone conferred incompatibility to S28 pollen. Although expression of SLG28 alone was incapable of promoting self-incompatibility, coexpression of SLG28 with SRK28 resulted in greater self-incompatibility than that observed with SRK28 alone. Therefore, expression of SRK is necessary and sufficient to control self-incompatibility, whereas SLG can augment the response. By having a mechanism that prevents inbreeding, plants increase their robustness through hybrid vigor.. Takasaki, T., Hatakeyama, K., ...

*  European man, Y chromosomes & tea leaves - Gene Expression

This inference was made in large part based upon the contemporary patterns of genetic variation, by assigning modern haplogroups to putative ancient populations. To the left is a map of the frequency of haplogroup R1b, which is the most common Y chromosomal lineage in western Europe. The frequency is highest among the Basques, who were presumed to be the most pristine reservoir of the genetic substratum of Paleolithic Europe. The conception here was that the Basques were clearly indigenous to Iberia, they were already there before the arrival of outsiders such as the Celts, Phoenicians, and finally Romans (this has influenced modern Basque nationalism to some extent). Their non-Indo-European language was assumed to be a relic of many dialects which once existed before Indo-European swept over them. Using R1b, and other haplogroups at high frequency among the "indigenous peoples" of Europe, historical geneticists pegged the ancestral quanta of hypothetical prehistoric groups using these putative ...

*  DNA - Genealem's Genetic Genealogy: 2009

In genetic genealogy the Y-chromosome is used to test the all male line (top line of a pedigree chart with the tester as number one on that chart) as this chromosome is consistent over time. For this reason a living male can be tested to determine the DNA signature of his ancestors in his all male line. The same is true of sections of the mitochondrial (mtDNA) which tests a person's all female line (bottom line of the pedigree chart if the tester is number one on that chart). Men can test both their Ydna and their mtDNA as every mother passes her mtDNA to all her children. However, only the daughters can pass the mtDNA to her children. Women can only their their mtDNA, as naturally, they do not carry their father's Y-chromosome. As Ydna mutates (changes that do no harm the species) more often it is possible to determine matches between testers within genealogical time. The mtDNA is slower to mutate, thus common the common ancestor of testers who match is not always within genealogical time. ...
