G1m (z, a, x, f) and G3m (g, b0, b1, b3, b5, s, t) allotypes were tested in 1079 Chukchi inhabitants of interior Chukotka and adjacent Kamchatka. Genetic variation at this particular locus is provided by the presence of three haplotypes, namely, za;g, zax;g and za;bO35st, revealed with mean frequencies of 0.748, 0.089 and 0.154, respectively. Traces of Caucasian Gm (f;bO135) haplotype were observed in 9 of 10 populations studied. Judging from its frequency in the whole group (0.009), European admixture in Reindeer Chukchi did not exceed 1.3%. Analysis of covariance and variance matrices containing gene frequencies for 11 polymorphic loci revealed the aspects of genetic structure. Simultaneously, the action of systematic versus nonsystematic pressure was also evaluated and interpreted in the light of historical and ecological events.
