Re: The L3f Locations in the Articles
In Response To: Re: The L3 Mystery & Articles ()
Is there any information on L3f that aligns with Ethiopian Jews are other sub-groups in the articles you have found? (Deb[Cuz], you maybe interested in this thread.)
There were no L3f haplogroups in the Cabo-Verde article.
2 among the Tswa in Southeastern Africa. The article doesn't list the amino acid letter and I don't know what the CRS standard is for these locations. The first has mutations at 16129, 16166, 16209, 16223, & 16311. The second at 16129, 16209, 16223, & 16311.
1 among the Sena and 2 among the Shangaan in Southeastern Africa. All with Mutations: 16209, 16223, & 16311.
2 among the Ronga in Southeastern Africa. Both with mutations: 16209, 16223, 16291, & 16311.
The L3f1 was among the Shona in Southeastern Africa with mutations at 16209, 16218, 16223, 16256, 16292, & 16311.
The authors write: "...Both L3f & L3g are rare and also appear to have an East African origin. L3* & L3g are virtually restricted to East Africa (with some dispersal into Central Africa, southeastern Africa, and the Near East). The subclade L3f1 appears to have spread at an early date into West Africa and is correspondingly also better represented in African Americans..."
The Angolan article had one L3f: 16209C, 16223T, 16311C
So, nothing in these articles specifically on Ethiopian Jews.
