Subject: [DNA] Early modern human - mtDNA sequence
Date: Mon, 1 Feb 2010 17:46:26 -0000
I almost missed this one !
A 30,000 year old mtDNA to accompany this paper:
Krause,J., Briggs,A.W., Kircher,M., Maricic,T., Zwyns,N., Derevianko,A.P. and Paabo,S.
A complete mtDNA genome of an early modern human from Kostenki, Russia
FN600416(Early modern human) Haplogroup U2 Krause 27-JAN-2010
A73G A263G C542T T711C A750G A1438G A1811G A2706G A4769G C7028T
A8860G A11467G G11719A A12308G G12372A A13269G C14766T T15262C A15326G A16051G
The 2 unusual gene mutations do not affect the amino acids, however.
and T711C has been seen a couple of times in modern samples.
So this sequence appears to be a 'basal U2' sequence and, insofar as one can go,
appears to fit in quite nicely with the modern tree on 'www.phylotree.org'.
