Genetic differentiation of blood polymorphic systems among 3 isolated human populations in central japan



Genetic differentiation of blood polymorphic systems among 3 isolated human populations in central japan



Bulletin of the Osaka Medical School 25(1): 12-29



The degree of genetic differentiation among 3 adjacent isolated populations in Mie Prefecture, Japan, was studied to determine the factors mainly responsible for the differentiation of the populations and to compare these results with those obtained at different hierarchic levels of human populations in Japan. The degree of genetic differentiation was measured using the gene frequencies of 11 blood polymorphic systems [including enzymes] and by using the coefficient of gene diversity (Nei 1973). The 3 populations were significantly different in their genetic compositions. Wahlund's effect was seen among the studied populations. The genetic differentiation among the studied populations was 0.6% of the total genetic variation. The area studied displayed greater genetic differentiation than that seen among the Tohoku, Kinki and Kyushu, but somewhat less differentiation than that seen among the Ainu, Kinki and Sakishima populations. The interpopulation variation patterns in the genotype frequencies vary strikingly from 1 system to another. A high level of genetic variability was found in the studied populations. The major part of the genetic differentiation among these populations apparently resulted from random genetic drift and migration, including some intervillage migrations.
