Mitochondrial DNA HV1 and HV2 Variation in Danes


Mitochondrial DNA HV1 and HV2 Variation in Danes

Martin Mikkelsen et al. Forensic Sci Int Genet.


Sequences from the two hypervariable regions (HV1 and HV2) of the control region of the mitochondrial DNA were obtained from a total of 201 Danes and five individuals who later were recognized to be of non-West European origin. Two fractions of each region were amplified separately and sequenced at least twice. The samples were sequenced using flanking sequencing primes and both terminator and primer chemistry. Sequence evaluation was performed by two independent scientists. The haplogroup distribution of the samples resembles that found in other European population. All the sequences have been made available in the EMPOP database.
