Allele Frequencies for D1S80 (pMCT118) Locus in Some East European Populations
The Byelorussian populations are from three regions of the Republic of Belarus (Grodno, Bobruisk, and Mjadel areas); the Russians are from the Kholmogory town of the Russian Federation (Arkhangelsk district); and the Ukrainian populations are from the Kiev and L'vov areas of Ukraine. The Mordva-Moksha (Staro-Shaiginsk and Romodanovsk areas of Mordva Republic), the Bashkirs (Ilishevsky, Abzelilovsky, Sterlibashevsky, Arkhangelsky, and Beloretsky districts of Bashkir Republic), the Komi-Zyrjan (Sysolsky district of Komi Republic), the Tartar (Almetyevsk town of Tartar Republic), and the Mari (Zvenigovsk area of Mari Republic) populations present distinct ethnic groups of the region between the Volga River and the Ural Mountains in Russia. Eastern Slavonic populations (Russians, Byelorussians, Ukrainians) are Caucasoids; other populations were considered as admixture populations with different levels of a Mongoloid component.
