In human genetics, Haplogroup J-M172 is a Y-chromosome haplogroup which is a subdivision of haplogroup J-P209. It is further divided into two complementary clades, J-M410 and J-M12 (M12, M102, M221, M314). J-M172 can be classified as Greco-Anatolian, Mesopotamian and/or Caucasian and is linked to the earliest indigenous populations of Anatolia. It was carried by Bronze age immigrants to Europe, and ultimately descends from the Cro-Magnon population (IJ-M429 Y-DNA) that emerged in Southwest Asia around 35,000 years ago.[21]



Haplogroup J-M172 was until recently widely believed to be associated with the spread of agriculture from Mesopotamia (Iraq and Syria).[9][5]

Diffusion of metallurgy in western Europe. The darkest areas are the oldest (J-M172 Y-DNA).

However, the main spread of J-M172 into the Mediterranean area is now thought to have coincided with the expansion of metallurgical people's during the Bronze Age."[22][1] The age of J-M172 has been estimated as 15,000 +/- 20,000 years ago.[9] Newer estimations based on Y-chromosome sequencing and a CT split 70,000 years ago, confirm the IJ split around 36,000 years ago, and place the J-M267/J-M172 split around 26,000 years ago.[23] J-M172 distribution, centered in Western Asia and Southeastern Europe, its association with the presence of Neolithic archaeological artifacts, such as figurines and painted pottery,[24] and its association with annual precipitation had been interpreted as evidence that J-M172, and in particular its J-M410 subclade belonged to the agricultural innovators who followed the rainfall. However, new genetic data would link the first farmers to haplogroup G[25] Di Giacomo stressed the role of post-Neolithic migratory phenomenon, specifically that of the Ancient Greeks, as also being important in the dispersal of haplogroup J-M172.[8]

subclades of J-M172 Haplogroup

Haplogroup J-M172 is found mainly in the Fertile Crescent, the Caucasus,[26] Anatolia, the Balkans, Italy, the Mediterranean littoral, and the Iranian plateau.[9]

The highest reported frequency of J-M172 ever was 87.4%, among Ingush in Malgobek.[3] J-M172 - Associated with Mediterranean, South Caucasian and Fertile Crescent populations, with its peaks at 87.4% in Ingushetia and 72% in Georgia's Kazbegi region (near Mount Kazbek). In the North Caucasus, the largest frequencies are those of Nakh peoples (Chechens (56.7%) and Ingush (88.8%).[26] Other notable values were found among North Caucasian Turkic peoples (Kumyks (25%)[27] and Balkars(24%)[28]). It is notable that according to both Nasidze's study in 2004 and then a later study on Dagestani peoples by Yunusbaev in 2006, J-M172 suddenly collapses as one enters the territory of non-Nakh Northeast Caucasian peoples, dropping to very low values among Dagestani peoples.[25][26][29][30] The overwhelming bulk of Chechen J-M172 is of the subclade J-M67), of which the highest frequencies by far are found among Nakh peoples- Chechens were 55.2% according to the Balanovsky study, while Ingush were 87.4%.

More specifically it is found in Iraq,[5] Syria,[27] Lebanon,[28] Turkey,[12] Georgia,[26] Azerbaijan,[8] North Caucasus,[2] Armenia,[4] Iran,[2] Israel,[9] Palestine,[9] Cyprus,[10] Greece,[16] Albania,[13] Italy,[18] and Spain,[29] and more frequently in Iraqis 43.6%,[6] Chechens 51.0%-58.0%,[3] Georgians 21%[4]-72%,[4] Lebanese 25%,[9] Ossetians 24%,[2] Balkars 24%,[15] Syrians 23%,[27] Turks 13%[12]-40%,[13] Cypriots 12.9%[14]-37%,[10] Armenians 21%[4]-24%,[2] Circassians 21.8%,[3] Iranians 10%[2]-25%,[4] Albanians 16%[15]-24%,[13] Italians 9%-36%,[18] Sephardi Jews 15%[11]-29%,[9] Maltese 21%,[10] Palestinians 17%,[9] Saudis 16%,[30] Jordanians 14%, Omanis 10%-15%,[8][27] and Hazaras from Afghanistan 27%.[31]

J-M172 is found at very high frequencies in certain peoples of the Caucasus: among the Ingush 87.4%,[3] Chechens 55.2%,[3] Georgians 21%[4]-72%,[4] Azeris 24%[8]-48%,[4] Abkhaz 25%,[2] Balkars 24%,[15] Ossetians 24%,[2] Armenians 21%[4]-24%,[2] Circassians 21.8%,[3] and other groups.[2][26]

In Europe, the frequency of Haplogroup J-M172 drops dramatically as one moves northward away from the Mediterranean. In Italy, J-M172 is found with regional frequencies ranging between 9% and 36%.[18] In Greece, it is found with regional frequencies ranging between 10% and 48%. Approximately 24% of Turkish men are J-M172 according to a recent study,[12] with regional frequencies ranging between 13% and 40%.[13] Combined with J-M267, up to half of the Turkish population belongs to Haplogroup J-P209.

It has been proposed that haplogroup subclade J-M410 was linked to populations on ancient Crete by examining the relationship between Anatolian, Cretan, and Greek populations from around early Neolithic sites.[32] Haplogroup J-M12 was associated with Neolithic Greece (ca. 8500 - 4300 BCE) and was reported to be found in modern Crete (3.1%) and mainland Greece (Macedonia 7.0%, Thessaly 8.8%, Argolis 1.8%).[33]

Sephardi Jews have about 15%[11]-29%,[9] of haplogroup J-M172, and Ashkenazi Jews have 15%[19]-23%.[9] It was reported in an early study which tested only four STR markers[34] that a small sample of Italian Cohens belonged to Network 1.2, an early designation for the overall clade now known as J-L26, defined by the deletion at DYS413. However, a large number of all Jewish Cohens in the world belong to haplogroup J-M267 (see Cohen modal haplotype).

Haplogroup J-M172 has been shown to have a more northern distribution in the Middle East, although it exists in significant amounts in the southern middle-east regions, a lesser amount of it was found when compared to its brother haplogroup, J-M267, which has a high frequency southerly distribution. It was believed that the source population of J-M172 originated from the Levant/Syria (Syrid-J-M172), and that its occurrence among modern populations of Europe, Central Asia, and South Asia was a sign of the neolithic agriculturalists. However, as stated it is now more likely to have originated in regions farther to the north, with the first metallurgists of the Middle East.

J-M172 subclades are also found in Central Asia, and South Asia. A genetic study published led by Firasat (2007) on Kalash individuals found a frequency of 9.1%. Haplogroup J-M410 in India was found to be largely confined to the castes, with little or no occurrence in the tribals. The frequency of J-M172 is higher in South Indian castes (19%) than in North Indian castes (11%) or Pakistan (12%).[21] Haplogroup J-P209 was found to be even more common in India's Shia Muslim, of which 28.7% are predominantly are Sayyid belong to haplogroup J, with 13.7% in J-M410, 10.6% in J-M267 and 4.4% in J2b.[35] The following gives a summary of most of the studies which specifically tested for J-M172, showing its distribution in Europe, North Africa, the Middle East and Central Asia.

Haplogroup J-M172 is subdivided into two complementary sub-haplogroups: J-M410, defined by the M410 genetic marker, and J-M12, defined by the M12 genetic marker.
