    Updated data on Cypriot mt-DNA haplogroups (please correct maps)

    Dear Maciamo, I appreciate the substantial amount of time you dedicate on creating these great haplogroup distribution maps and I understand how hard it must be to go through all the evidence and get it right for every single region in Europe. I could see from your mt-DNA maps that the data for Cyprus are not accurate and up to date. I would kindly ask you to use the latest figures available from the Irwin et al (2008) paper and/or from the Cypriot DNA project (below):

    1. Irwin et al, Mitochondrial control region sequences from northern Greece and Greek Cypriots. Int J Legal Med. 2008

    mt-DNA Haplogroups (n=91)_____________%
    H 28,6
    K 20,9
    U 16,5
    T 8,8
    J 5,5
    I 3,3
    W 3,3
    X 3,3
    L 3,3
    M1 2,2
    R2 2,2
    N1 1,1
    HV 1,1

    2. Cypriot DNA project (FTDNA/23andme/GENO2.0 data)

    mt-DNA Haplogroups (n=75)_____________%
    H 33,3
    K 20,0
    U 18,7
    T 5,3
    J 4,0
    I 2,7
    W 4,0
    X 1,3

    Thanks, Alexandros. This is very helpful. I will update the maps in consequence.

    Would you happen to have data on HV0, V, T1, T2 and U subclades ? Without that I cannot update those maps.

    For T1 and T2 (also J1 & J2) there is

    Pala et al 2012 - Supplemental Data: Document S2 (Table S3)
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3376494/

    91 samples (Greek Cypriots) = 7.69% mtDNA T (7 samples)
    all 7 samples (7.69%)
    = T2 (2 samples T2* / 5 samples T2c1)

    They sure do have a lot of K and H is STILL dominant (20-30%), but the 20% K is very particular since 3 of the 4 first women to receive the K mutation where Ashkenazi Jewish.

    and who of these 4 women was the mother of Ötzi (K1ö / 3300 BC Neolithic) or the Mother at Eulau (K1b / 2600 BC Corded-ware)
    acc. to that mtDNA K existed in Europe long before any Jewish diaspora and even long before the entire Jewish faith even existed altogether;

    Well of course mtdna K existed long before the formation of the Jewish ethnos; never the less mtdna K is an important maternal component among the Ashkenazi Jews.

    Hi Maciamo. Yes of course. Here is what I have from Irwin et al and Cypriot DNA project, combined (total n=166):

    haplogroup U (N=29) => U1 (n=3), U3 (n=9), U4 (n=6), U5 (n=2), U6 (n=2), U7 (n=3), U8 (n=2), U-unspecified (n=2)

    haplogroup T (n=12) => T1 (n=2), T2 (n=9), T-unspecified (n=1)

    haplogroup HV (n=5) => HV9 (n=1), HV-unspecified (n=4)

    haplogroup V (no data; at the moment n=0)

    Regarding the other comments.. yes indeed, even though H is the predominant mtDNA haplogroup among Cypriots, the prevalence of haplogroup K is astonishingly high. I believe this is a result of continuous migrations from 'K-rich' populations during the Neolithic (Levant and Anatolia) and Chalcolithic (Cuacasus and Anatolia) periods. Haplogroup K frequency probably also received a later boost from the Jewish populations that 'flooded' the island during the Roman era. All in all, 20% is extremely high for K!

    Thanks. I have added the data for Cyprus in the mtDNA table, and corrected the maps of U3 and U4.
