    Mitochondrial DNA sequence analysis in Sicily

    G. Vona, M.E. Ghiani, C.M. Calò, L. Vacca, M. Memmì, L. Varesi

    Department of Experimental Biology, Section of Anthropological Sciences, University of Cagliari, Monserrato, Italy.

    In work carried out with restriction enzymes on mtDNA in a sample of Sicilians, Semino et al. (1989) indicated the presence (4.4%) of the African complex HpaI-3/AvaII-3 (40% in Senegal and in the Bantu of South Africa). The authors hypothesized a migration of genes from Africa to Sicily, estimated at about 10%, which was introduced into the Sicilian gene pool by Black slaves brought by the Phoenicians and the Romans and/or by Arab migrations. Results at the mtDNA sequencing level, however, show no Black African influence in the Sicilian population.

    There is however, and correct me if I'm wrong, some paternal sub-sharan influence in Sicily?

    In Coon's The Living Races of Man, he wrote about African genes throughout Europe. If I recall correctly, it happened thousands of years ago.

    Only 49 people were studied, maybe they got lucky.

    really.. as an European i dont really get the idea that Italians or Sicilians would be tainted.. there must be numerous other " white " areas much more affected dont u think ?? acctually its rare do assemble a fully white group nowadays.. especially in the US .... btw Europe is in abad condition aswell, please, would u remove your ZOG government so that we can live in peace???

    Let us not forget that Jews started out in Europe, then came to America. If Europe had never let the Jews into their house, they wouldn't be in America's house, and in turn would not be as powerful as they are now.

    so true.. but in Europe they where mostly kept on the carpet, whereas in the US they rule supreme.. doesent seem to bother the ordinary "six packer" does it ? are these brainwashed 350 pounders the Europid hope for survival?

    Post Re: 0% African mtDNA in Sicily (erratum)

    I very much doubt that there is any significant residual negro genetic presence in Sicily or Italy, although I seem to remember one study finding some evidence of prehistoric negro genes in Sardinia. I'm afraid that the black genes in Italy, like elsewhere in Europe, are of recent (1965+) provenance. The dark looks of many Italians are purely due to the overwhelmingly Mediterranoid racial make up of the country, at least in the South.

    Post mtDNA Genetic Analysis in Sicily (Italy)

    Autosomal Microsatellite and mtDNA Genetic Analysis in Sicily (Italy)
    V. Romano1,a, F. Calì2, A. Ragalmuto2, R. P. D'Anna1,a, A. Flugy1,a, G. De Leo1,a, O. Giambalvo3, A. Lisa7, O. Fiorani7, C. Di Gaetano5, A. Salerno1,b4, R. Tamouza6, D. Charron6, G. Zei7, G. Matullo5 and A. Piazza5,*


    Summary

    DNA samples from 465 blood donors living in 7 towns of Sicily, the largest island of Italy, have been collected according to well defined criteria, and their genetic heterogeneity tested on the basis of 9 autosomal microsatellite and mitochondrial DNA polymorphisms for a total of 85 microsatellite allele and 10 mtDNA haplogroup frequencies. A preliminary account of the results shows that: a) the samples are genetically heterogeneous; b) the first principal coordinates of the samples are correlated more with their longitude than with their latitude, and this result is even more remarkable when one outlier sample (Butera) is not considered; c) distances among samples calculated from allele and haplogroup frequencies and from the isonymy matrix are weakly correlated (r = 0.43, P = 0.06) but such correlation disappears (r = 0.16) if the mtDNA haplogroups alone are taken into account; d) mtDNA haplogroups and microsatellite distances suggest settlements of people occurred at different times: divergence times inferred from microsatellite data seem to describe a genetic composition of the town of Sciacca mainly derived from settlements after the Roman conquest of Sicily (First Punic war, 246 BC), while all other divergence times take root from the second to the first millennium BC, and therefore seem to backdate to the pre-Hellenistic period.

    A more reliable association of these diachronic genetic strata to different historical populations (e.g. Sicani, Elymi, Siculi), if possible, must be postponed to the analysis of more samples and hopefully more informative uniparental DNA markers such as the recently available DHPLC-SNP polymorphisms of the Y chromosome.
