View Full Version : U5a2

06-02-2017, 02:13 AM
I was tested at 23andMe and my mtdna came back as U5a2, no sub-clade listed. After running this through James Licks calculator I got the same result (imperfect match) but noticed 3 extras and 2 no-calls. I am hoping that someone can help to set me on the right track to figuring out which sub-clade I belong to (I understand that I should get a full analysis done but I would like to see if my results correspond with a sub).


1) U5a2
Defining Markers for haplogroup U5a2:
HVR2: 73G 263G
CR: 750G 1438G 2706G 3197C 4769G 7028T 8860G 9477A 11467G 11719A 12308G 12372A 13617C 14766T 14793G 15326G
HVR1: 16192T 16256T 16270T 16526A
Marker path from rCRS to haplogroup U5a2 (plus extra markers):
H2a2a1(rCRS) ⇨ 263G ⇨ H2a2a ⇨ 8860G 15326G ⇨ H2a2 ⇨ 750G ⇨ H2a ⇨ 4769G ⇨ H2 ⇨ 1438G ⇨ H ⇨ 2706G 7028T ⇨ HV ⇨ 14766T ⇨ R0 ⇨ 73G 11719A ⇨ R ⇨ 11467G 12308G 12372A ⇨ U ⇨ 16192T 16270T ⇨ U5 ⇨ 3197C 9477A 13617C ⇨ U5a'b ⇨ 14793G 16256T ⇨ U5a ⇨ 16526A ⇨ U5a2 ⇨ 199C 15250T 16223T
Imperfect Match. Your results contained differences with this haplogroup:
Matches(19): 73G 263G 750G 1438G 2706G 3197C 4769G 7028T 8860G 9477A 11467G 11719A 12372A 13617C 14766T 14793G 16256T 16270T 16526A
Extras(3): 199C 15250T 16223T
No-Calls(1): 12308G
Untested(2): 15326 16192

Any help is greatly appreciated.

There are no U5a2 samples in the U5 project that share your extra mutation at 15250. Both 199 and 16223 are somewhat common mutations. You would need to test the full mtDNA sequence to see if you are in one of existing subclades of U5a2 or if you form a new subclade. I summarized results of the U5 project at this link (https://www.familytreedna.com/groups/u-5b/about/results).
