Re: The L3 Mystery & Articles
In Response To: Re: The L3 Mystery ()
What are your mutations from CRS? There are a few articles online that might help you determine more specificity. I'm still listed as an L3 at FTDNA, but through articles and email from them, it looks like Howard & I are more specifically L3e3 (mutations at 16223T, 16265T - appears to be the indicator of L3e3, 15519C - very common doesn't tell you much, and 16527T). I wish I'd written down all the web links, but you should be able to google these:
Phylogeography of the human mitochondrial haplogroup L3e: a snapshot of African prehistory and Atlantic slave trade. Primary Author: H.J. Bandelt. Ann. Hum. Genet. (2001), 65, 549-563.
Mitochondrial portrait of the Cabo Verde archipelago: the Senegambian outpost of Atlantic slave trade. Primary Author: A. Brehm. Ann. Hum. Genet. (2002), 66, 49-60.
Recommended by the folks hosting the African DNA Project for FTDNA is this article that has info on all the L Haplotypes:
MtDNA Variation in Guine-Bissau. Primary Author:??. Annals of Human Genetics (2004) 68, 340-352.
The African Diaspora: Mitochondrial DNA and the Atlantic Slave Trade. Primary Author: Antonio Salas. Am. J. Hum. Genet.74:454-465, 2004.
Insights into the western Bantu dispersal: mtDNA lineage analysis in Angola. Primary Author: Stephanie Plaza. Hum. Genet. (2004) 115: 439-447.
Has anyone found any articles from 2005-2006 online that might be of interest?
