    DNA from medieval plague victims suggests long-term effect of Yersinia pestis

    Abstract

    Pathogens and associated outbreaks of infectious disease exert selective pressure on human populations, and any changes in allele frequencies that result may be especially evident for genes involved in immunity. In this regard, the 1346-1353 Yersinia pestis-caused Black Death pandemic, with continued plague outbreaks spanning several hundred years, is one of the most devastating recorded in human history. To investigate the potential impact of Y. pestis on human immunity genes we extracted DNA from 36 plague victims buried in a mass grave in Ellwangen, Germany in the 16th century. We targeted 488 immune-related genes, including HLA, using a novel in-solution hybridization capture approach. In comparison with 50 modern native inhabitants of Ellwangen, we find differences in allele frequencies for variants of the innate immunity proteins Ficolin-2 and NLRP14 at sites involved in determining specificity. We also observed that HLA-DRB1*13 is more than twice as frequent in the modern population, whereas HLA-B alleles encoding an isoleucine at position 80 (I-80+), HLA C*06:02 and HLA-DPB1 alleles encoding histidine at position 9 are half as frequent in the modern population. Simulations show that natural selection has likely driven these allele frequency changes. Thus, our data suggests that allele frequencies of HLA genes involved in innate and adaptive immunity responsible for extracellular and intracellular responses to pathogenic bacteria, such as Y. pestis, could have been affected by the historical epidemics that occurred in Europe.

    p.s
    interesting for me to see beyond e-v13 which is expected
    also e-L19 > E-PF2438 individual and e-m81 individual
    those 2 could arrived to germany in roman times

    ancestery :
    mostly western jewish here is the overlapp with south europe[U]

    yanis that is very cool
    can you upload ELW029 to yfull ?

    p.s
    it might arrived to southern germany with roman army
    or with auxilary troops attached to therm who were left behind

    Elw029

    I sent them an email, they replied that they could not immediately add it to their tree because this sample is of poor quality and coverage. They plan to modify their algorithm to be able to add any sample anyway.
    Regarding its origin, the Roman scenario is the one that is the consensus, given that the entire FGC18973 clade is inside the limes. See the distribution of FGC18981.

    yanis ,
    small question not related to ELW029 dude

    there is already 1 confirmed azeri from iran in ftdna
    but i look at this site /page 4
    https://www.pf2431.com/personalities
    is this armenian leader is also e-L19
    is it confirmed by relative of him ?


    i am asking
    because if he is maybe you to put him in the famous e1b1b1 thread

    Please John, the Armenian sample is my closest match, it is also BY9849. The person who manages this account has put all information about him in private, I don't think they want to have their identity made public. On the other hand there is another line which is also BY9849 and that of the Queen of England Catherine Pegg. Or, from the same Saint John Fisher branch.

    i respect that ...
    but it is a little bummer
    because he is a very famous person
    he was one of the top 5 back in the ussr after all

    the results of ELW029 have been verified and corrected, in the end we only know that it is E-FGC18970 which is equivalent to E-FGC18981 ancestor of BY9849 / FGC18960. The latter is my subclade.

    So he can fall on the south german line in yfull
    Or the swiss/ spanish line in yfull
    under e-fgc18981
    https://www.yfull.com/live/tree/E-FGC18981/
    Thanks for update
    He is still very close to you

    P.s
    I am guessing he is not in best quality
    Thats why we can't know the downstream branch under e-fgc18981 he belong to
