Genetics[ edit ] The distribution of the Y-chromosome among Japanese males is a lot different from the males of neighboring countries, such as in Taiwanese males. The Y chromosome is directly correlated to Asian populations, especially in Japanese Americans. The chromosome addition of Y Alu polymorphic element is only displayed in Japanese American men.
People of Japanese descent show the highest frequency of the haplogroup O3a5. Haplogroups are groups of genetic populations that share a common ancestor, paternally or maternally. The Japanese DNA sequence consists of With the Ainu, there has been research that that group were descendants of the caucasian group.
Between the different Japanese populations, the Yayoi population has the highest haplogroup frequencies of the D4 haplogroup.
In modern Japanese Americans, the highest haplogroup frequency is in the D4 haplogroup, the same as the Yayoi Japanese population.
In Okinawa Japanese populations, the highest frequency of haplogroups is the D haplogroup, with the M7a haplogroup frequency directly behind. Of the Ainu Japanese population, the highest haplogroup frequency occurs in the Y haplogroup, followed closely by an even distribution of frequency in the D, M7a, and G haplogroups.
Lastly, for mainland Japanese populations, the D haplogroup presents the highest frequency. People of Japanese descent show two pre-Yayoi ancestral Y chromosome lineages descended from Paleolithic people who had been isolated on the mainland of Japan.
Studies of the mitochondrial component of Japanese American genes of haplogroup M12 shows a direct correlation of Japanese haplotypes with Tibetans.
Other haplotypes that early descents of Japanese people were thought to be carried into include C-M8, which is another Y-chromosome haplotype.
The estimated percentage of this type of gene in Japanese Americans is about The highest frequencies occur in Okinawans and Hokkaidos. Risk for inherited diseases[ edit ] Studies have looked into the risk factors that are more prone to Japanese Americans, specifically in hundreds of family generations of Nisei The generation of people born in North America, Latin America, Hawaii, or any country outside Japan either to at least one Issei or one non-immigrant Japanese parent second-generation pro-bands A person serving as the starting point for the genetic study of a family, used in medicine and psychiatry.
The risk factors for genetic diseases in Japanese Americans include coronary heart disease and diabetes. One study, called the Japanese American Community Diabetes Study that started in and went throughinvolved the pro-bands taking part to test whether the increased risk of diabetes among Japanese Americans is due to the effects of Japanese Americans having a more westernized lifestyle due to the many differences between the United States of America and Japan.
One of the main goals of the study was to create an archive of DNA samples which could be used to identify which diseases are more susceptible in Japanese Americans. Concerns with these studies of the risks of inherited diseases in Japanese Americans is that information pertaining to the genetic relationship may not be consistent with the reported biological family information given of Nisei second generation pro-bands.
Also, there is increased coronary heart disease in Japanese-American men with a mutation in the cholesterol ester transfer protein gene despite having increased levels of HDL. By definition, HDL are plasma high density lipoproteins that show a genetic relationship with coronary heart disease CHD.
The cholesterol ester transfer protein CETP helps the transfer of cholesterol esters from lipoproteins to other lipoproteins in the human body. It plays a fundamental role in the reverse transport of cholesterol to the liver, which is why a mutation in this can lead to coronary heart disease.
There is a very common pattern of two different cholesterol ester transfer protein gene mutations DG, 5. This was based off a program called the Honolulu Heart Program. The relative risk of CHD was 1. You can help by adding to it.
June See also: Due to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II, historically Japanese areas fell into disrepair or became adopted by other minority groups in the case of Black and Latino populations in Little Tokyo. Boats owned by Japanese Americans were confiscated by the U.

Essentially, given a list of English/Japanese name pairs, the system learns a series of substitution rules to apply to the English input in order to get the Japanese output. For instance, the first rule the system learns is to replace the letter "L" with the letter "R", because there is no "L" in Japanese.
