Subject: [DNA] L21 and U106 Deep Clade Results
Date: Fri, 26 Feb 2010 10:28:10 +0000


I have been surprised by Deep Clade test results for two members in the
O'Shea yDNA Project. Two individuals are only a genetic distance of 4
apart on 37 markers (FTDNA) and they have the same surname and their
ancestors come from the same county in Ireland (Kerry). One has tested
L21+ and the other tested U106+.

The person who is L21+:

DYS390=24
DYS391=10
DYS 460=11
DYS GATA H4=10

and person who is U106+ has:

DYS390=23
DYS391=11
DYS460=12
DYS GATA H4=11

DYS391 and DYS GATA H4 do seem to form a pattern with one "half" of the
Kerry Group having a value of 10 on DYS391 and a value of 10 on DYS GATA
H4 while the other "half" has values 11 and 11 respectively.

Other members of the project have tested L21+ and further testing is now
being done to see if the 106+ result is widespread and if it follows the
DYS391 & GATA H4 pattern of STR results.

Does anyone have any thoughts on the above?
