AJPA_21242_sm_suppinfofigureS1.doc986KFigure S1. The ancient skulls excavated from 2000-year-old elite Xiongnu cemetery in northeast Mongolia. (A) The skull of MNX3 West Eurasian male. (B) The skull of MNX4 female
AJPA_21242_sm_suppinfofigureS2.doc708KFigure S2. Neighbor-joining tree constructed with a total of 8424 concatenated unambiguous HV2 (NP 47-360) and HV1 (NP 16024-16380) control region sequences of mtDNA to search for proximate sequences to the ancient Mongolian mtDNA sequences.
AJPA_21242_sm_suppinfofigureS3.doc165KFigure S3. Ancient mtDNA amplification plots for the quantification. (A) Amplification plot of 10-fold serial dilutions (from 5 × 105 to 50 copies) of mtDNA 440 bp amplicon standard and the standard curve (B) Amplification plot of 10-fold serial dilutions (from 5 × 105 to 50 copies) of 221 bp amplicon standard and the standard curve (C) MtDNA 440 bp amplication plot with MNX3 ancient samples. (D) Melting curve analysis of mtDNA 440 bp amplicons for the identification. (E) MtDNA 221 bp amplicon plot with MNX3 ancient samples. (F) Melting curve analysis of mtDNA 221 bp amplicons. Note that the copy numbers of 22l bp amplicons are 22-36 times higher than those of 440 bp amplicons with earlier amplifications.
AJPA_21242_sm_suppinfofigureS4.doc827KFigure S4. Amplification of ancient horse mtDNA. (A) Agarose gel electrophoresis analysis of PCR-amplified mtDNA from genomic DNA extracts from a horse skeleton (the last molar on the left side of lower jaw) excavated together with ancient human skeletons of tomb No. 2. Predicted horse mtDNA PCR products were successfully obtained only with primers designed for the amplification of a horse mtDNA D-loop fragment (368 bp) from the two independent horse aDNA extracts (2 μl) (left lanes 1-4), whereas no amplifiable products were observed with primers for human mtDNA HV1 (F15971/R16410) from those under the same condition (right lanes 1-4). Primers used for the horse mtDNA: forward, 5′-CAA CAC CCA AAG CTG AAA TTC TAC-3′; reverse, 5′-GGA GCG AGG ATT GGG ACA C-3′. Lane M, 100-bp DNA size standards; lane 1, tooth extract No. 1; lane 2, replicate of tooth extract No. 1; lane 3, tooth extract No. 2; lane 4, replicate of tooth extract No. 2; lane DW, distilled water. (B) DNA sequence profile of mtDNA fragment amplified from DNA extracts from ancient horse skeletons (lane 1 and 3).
