The normal-state transverse magnetoresistance (ΔR/R0) has been studied in the ab plane of three YBa2Cu3Ox single crystals with oxygen indices x=6.95, 6.88, and 6.62. A linear quadratic-field dependence ΔR/R0=AH2+BH has been found up to 15 T in the temperature region where superconducting fluctuations are negligible. The linear component dominating in oxygen-deficient samples is probably related to the interaction between charge carriers and dynamic antiferromagnetic spin fluctuations in CuO2 layers of YBa2Cu3Ox.
