    I do not know the specifics for most of these populations, but a recent Italian (or Sicilian) U7 FGS came back as a HVR1/HVR2 match with the lone Assyrian U7 tested at FTDNA.

    Based on the coding region analysis, we extended the initial number of 49 putative lineages (Table S4) to 53 potentially founding lineages, because the coding region analysis suggested that four putative founding lineages (J1b'e/J1e, H4a1a, H30 and R0a1c) were each comprised of 2 daughter sub-lineages. For 52 of the 53 lineages, confidence intervals covered 2,000 years as a potential coalescence age, and are therefore concordant with the founder event occurring during the last 2,000 years. The only lineage for which the confidence interval did not cover 2,000 years is the Iranian Jewish U7a1. However, two additional lineages, L0a2c and T2f, gave a coalescence estimate larger than 4000 years, with their confidence intervals greatly exceeding 2,000 years. Thus, we can state that in general, while almost the entire set of founder lineages identified herein is consistent with the constraint of a coalescence age within the last 2,000 years, it is likely that some may have started to expand earlier. It should be recalled that the imposed 2,000 year constraint adds a degree of stringency–and relaxing this to values greater than 2,000 years would be expected to result in the inclusion of more lineages within the time from expansion.

    On the maternal side, a significant (East/Southwest) Asian component (11.8%) is present among Marsh Arabs as testified to by Hgs B4, M, R2 and U7. The B4 mtDNAs carry control-region motifs observed in Iran, Kirghizstan, Western Siberia, Vietnam, Korea [51-53] attesting to contact with Central and East Asia. This observation is likely due to recent gene flow, although it is worth noting that the ancient Silk Road passed through the Iraqi region from Basra to Baghdad. On the other hand, the majority of M, R2 and U7 mtDNAs display control-region motifs observed in South West Asian and in particular in India [47,54-57].

    In the Sarkissian study the U7 (haplotype 16256T-16318t) individual (sample RD-3) is Sarmatian. There is a modern U7a3 sample from Iraq that shares 16256T-16318t and also has 16368: JQ705966 Iraq - Kirkuk, Mizrachi

    Humanist, if you know this FGS, could you post it here? Probably it would be interesting to compare its coding region with the others at our disposal, in attending that also this Assyrian does it.

    The FGS Italian, as far as I know, is not a member of any project. I cannot see their coding region mutations, unfortunately. Hopefully they will upload to GenBank, so that we can all view the mutations. The Assyrian is only tested through HVR1/HVR2, unfortunately. I am the only Assyrian at FTDNA with a FGS.

    Read about the paper on Dienekes' blog:

    Interesting how U7 appears to "leapfrog" much of C/W Anatolia and the Levant. It appears in C/S Asia, Persia, Mesopotamia, SW Arabia, Egypt...

    U7 in Rostov Scythians

    This "Central Asian Corridor" sensu der Sarkissian (Iraq, Iran, Pakistan, India) seems to touch Frachetti's Inner Asian Mountain Corridor (shown below) in the region of the Pamirs.

    The "leapfrog" effect may itself be similar to the "wavefront" model seen in Y-DNA R1b's frequencies.

    Applying it to mtDNA U7, the origin may be somewhere around Anatolia and it diffused in random directions from there. I don't know whether the HVR diversity supports this.

    I do not know the specifics for most of these populations, but a recent Italian (or Sicilian) U7 FGS came back as a HVR1/HVR2 match with the lone Assyrian U7 tested at FTDNA.
    From the 29 Kurds from Georgia at Comas et al 2000 only 1 individual is U7, 1/29=3.44%.
    From the 15 Kurds from Iraq at Al-Zahery et al. 2012 1 individual is U7, 1/15=6.7%.
    From the 20 Kurds from Iran at Quintana-Murci et al. 2004 4 individuals are U7, 4/20=20%.
    It is way too early to say but it looks like a North-South gradient with the Zagros Mountains as a major peak area.
    All public and private data:
    http://kurdishdna.blogspot.com/2013/...a-data-ix.html
    From the 98 Kurds 7 individuals are U7, 7/98=7%.
