  1. pmc Mutations of complement lectin pathway genes MBL2 and MASP2 associated with placental malaria
    Ville Holmberg
    Department of Bacteriology and Immunology, University of Helsinki, Helsinki, Finland
    Malar J 11:61. 2012
    ..Innate immunity plays a crucial role in the host defense against malaria including Plasmodium falciparum malaria in pregnancy, but the roles of the various underlying genes and mechanisms predisposing to the disease are poorly understood...
  2. pmc Population substructure in Finland and Sweden revealed by the use of spatial coordinates and a small number of unlinked autosomal SNPs
    Ulf Hannelius
    Department of Biosciences and Nutrition, Karolinska Institutet, 14157 Huddinge, Sweden
    BMC Genet 9:54. 2008
    ..However, some studies have suggested that this number could be reduced if the individual spatial coordinates are taken into account in the analysis...
  3. ncbi request reprint Y chromosomal polymorphisms reveal founding lineages in the Finns and the Saami
    P Lahermo
    Department of Medical Genetics, University of Turku, Finland
    Eur J Hum Genet 7:447-58. 1999
    ..The presence of a bottleneck or founding effect in the male lineages of some of the populations, namely in the Finns and the Saami, would appear to be one likely interpretation for these findings...
  4. ncbi request reprint MtDNA polymorphism in the Hungarians: comparison to three other Finno-Ugric-speaking populations
    P Lahermo
    Department of Medical Genetics, University of Turku, Finland
    Hereditas 132:35-42. 2000
    ..The Hungarians could not be distinguished from the neighboring populations (e.g., the Austrians) any more than from their Finno-Ugric linguistic relatives...
  5. pmc The genetic relationship between the Finns and the Finnish Saami (Lapps): analysis of nuclear DNA and mtDNA
    P Lahermo
    Department of Medical Genetics, University of Turku, Finland
    Am J Hum Genet 58:1309-22. 1996
    ..The distribution of the pairwise nucleotide differences in the Saami suggested that this population has not experienced an expansion similar to what was indicated for the Finns and the reference populations...
  6. ncbi request reprint mtDNA haplotype analysis in Finnish families with leber hereditary optic neuroretinopathy
    T Lamminen
    Department of Medical Genetics, University of Turku, Finland
    Eur J Hum Genet 5:271-9. 1997
    ..However, the frequency of ND4/11778-positive families in haplogroup J was high, which may indicate that background mutations in this haplogroup together with the ND4/11778 primary mutation promote the penetrance of LHON...
  7. ncbi request reprint Mapping of the second locus for the Van der Woude syndrome to chromosome 1p34
    H Koillinen
    Department of Medical Genetics, University of Helsinki, Finland
    Eur J Hum Genet 9:747-52. 2001
    ..This finding has a special interest because the phenotype in VWS closely resembles the phenotype in non-syndromic forms of cleft lip and palate...
  8. pmc A genome scan for developmental dyslexia confirms linkage to chromosome 2p11 and suggests a new locus on 7q32
    N Kaminen
    Department of Medical Genetics, Biomedicum, University of Helsinki, Finland
    J Med Genet 40:340-5. 2003
    ..No mutations were identified. We conclude that DYX3 appears to be important for dyslexia susceptibility in many Finnish families, and a suggested linkage of dyslexia to chromosome 7q32 will need verification in other data sets...
