To investigate the structure of Y chromosome haplogroups R-M207 and Q-M242 inhuman populations of North Asia, we have performed high-resolution genotypingusing both single nucleotide polymorphisms and short tandem repeat (STR)-basedapproaches of 121 M207- and M242-derived samples from 885 males of 16 ethnicgroups of Siberia and East Asia. As a result, the following Y chromosomehaplogroups were revealed: R1b1b1-M73 (2.0%), R1b1b2-M269 (0.7%), R2-M124 (1.1%),Q1a(*)-MEH2 (0.5%), Q1a2-M25 (0.1%), Q1a3(*)-M346 (9.2%) and Q1a3a-M3 (0.2%).Despite the low coalescence age of haplogroup Q1a3(*)-M346, which is estimated inSouth Siberia as about 4.5±1.5 thousand years ago (Ka), divergence time betweenthese Q1a3(*)-M346 haplotypes and Amerindian-specific haplogroup Q1a3a-M3 isequal to 13.8±3.9 Ka, pointing to a relatively recent entry date to America. Inaddition, unique cluster of haplotypes belonging to Q1a(*)-MEH2 was found inKoryaks inhabiting the Sea of Okhotsk coast (at a frequency of 10.3%). Althoughthe level of STR diversity associated with Q1a(*)-MEH2 is very low, this lineage appears to be closest to the extinct Palaeo-Eskimo individuals belonging to theSaqqaq culture arisen in the New World Arctic about 5.5 Ka. This finding suggeststhat Q1a(*)-MEH2 likely traces a population migration originating in NortheastSiberia across the Bering Strait.Journal of Human Genetics advance onlinepublication, 16 June 2011; doi:10.1038/jhg.2011.64.PMID: 21677663  [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
