    ABSTRACT: The Youzhou black-skin goat (Capra hircus), an indigenous breed of Chinese southwest. Here, we describe the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Hechuan white goat. The mitogenome is 16,640 nt in length, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes, 2 ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes and a control region. As in other mammals, most mitochondrial genes are encoded on the heavy strand, except for ND6 and eight tRNA genes, which are encoded on the light strand. Its overall base composition is A: 33.5%, T: 27.3%, C: 26.1% and G: 13.1%. The complete mitogenome of the local subspecies of Hechuan white goat could provide an important data to further breed improvement and animal genetics resource conservation in China.

    ABSTRACT: Here is a first record for a mitochondrial genome of marine fungus Acremonium fuci and closely related species Emericellopsis sp. One strain for each species, differentiated by morphological features was studied. Complete mitochondrial sequences are 24 565 and 24 951 bp in length. The circular molecule encodes all genes typical for fungal mitochondrial genomes: 15 protein-coding genes, 28 tRNAs, and large and small subunits of RNA. All structural genes are located on one strand and transcribed in one direction. Mitogenomes of species have 99% identity in protein-coding genes, but differ in some structural features: one of them has additional ORF with a similarity to cox1 gene, and another one has an intron in nad5 gene.

    ABSTRACT: The Siamese fighting fish (Betta splendens) is one of the popular aquarium fish. Serious attentions have been paid to the biodiversity of the fish. The mitochondrial genome of the Siamese fighting fish is reported to be 17 099 bp and includes 37 genes. The gene organization is similar to other fish mitogenomes. The control region is AT-rich and includes three tandem repeats. Phylogenetic analysis reveals that the fish is close to fish in the Macropodus genus. This mitogenome will assist in studying the mitochondrial variations and population structure in this fish and examine the evolutionary relationship among fish in the Osphronemidae family.

    ABSTRACT: The complete chloroplast (cp) genome of the Sinopodophyllum hexandrum (Berberidaceae) was determined in this study. The circular genome is 157,940 bp in size, and comprises a pair of inverted repeat (IR) regions of 26,077 bp each, a large single-copy (LSC) region of 86,460 bp and a small single-copy (SSC) region of 19,326 bp. The GC content of the whole cp genome was 38.5%. A total of 133 genes were identified, including 88 protein-coding genes, 37 tRNA genes and eight rRNA genes. The whole cp genome consists of 114 unique genes, and 19 genes are duplicated in the IR regions. The phylogenetic analysis revealed that S. hexandrum is closely related to Nandina domestica within the family Berberidaceae.

    ABSTRACT: Gonista bicolor belongs to Orthoptera, Acrididae, Gonista Bolivar, which is widely distributed in China. In this work, we first published the complete mitochondrial genome of G. bicolor. It is 15 618 bp long, and the AT content of the whole genome (J-strand) is 76.3%. The mitogenome consists of 37 typical invertebrate mitochondrial genes and a 761 bp (A + T) rich region. Of the 13 protein-coding genes (PCGs), 12 start with a standard ATN codon except for COI, whose initiation codon is ACC. Eight PCGs use TAG or TAA as complete termination codons, while others terminate with T or TA. The size of the lrRNA and srRNA genes is 1321 and 793 bp, respectively. Here, we use the 13 PCGs of G. bicolor, together with 12 other related species (two species as the outgroup) as PCGs data set, to construct the species phylogenetic tree.

    ABSTRACT: The complete mitochondrial genome of the Yellow-spotted skate Okamejei hollandi was determined in this study. It is 16,974 bp in length and contains 13 protein-coding genes, two rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and one putative control region. The overall base composition is 30.5% A, 27.8% C, 14.0% G, and 27.8% T. There are 28 bp short intergenic spaces located in 12 gene junctions and 31 bp overlaps located in nine gene junctions in the whole mitogenome. Two start codons (ATG and GTG) and two stop codons (TAG and TAA/T) were used in the protein-coding genes. The lengths of 22 tRNA genes range from 68 (tRNA-Ser2) to 75 (tRNA-Leu1) bp. The origin of L-strand replication (OL) sequence (37 bp) was identified between the tRNA-Asn and tRNA-Cys genes. The control region is 1311 bp in length with high A + T and poor G content.

    ABSTRACT: The Wolverine Gulo gulo is an endangered species in China. We first obtained blood sample, extracted the sample DNA and sequenced the whole mtDNA genome of wolverine in Northeast China. We built the phylogenetic tree of wolverine and 10 other most closely related Mustelidae species. The wolverine's complete mitogenome is 16 575 bp in length, includes 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes and one control region. The phylogenetic tree indicates that Wolverine is mostly close to the genus Martes.

    ABSTRACT: Lack of adequate information about the taxonomic and evolutionary relationships, ecology, biology, and distribution of several species belonging to the family Potamotrygonidae makes these species vulnerable to anthropic activities, including commercial overexploitation for the ornamental fish market. The aim of this study was to investigate the systematic relationships among genera and species belonging to this family by analyses of three mitochondrial gene regions. Samples were collected from the main river basins in Colombia and Venezuela for four genera and seven species of the family, as well as for what appear to be unidentified species. Three mitochondrial molecular markers COI, Cytb, and ATP6 were amplified and sequenced. Maximum likelihood and Bayesian inference analysis were performed to obtain topologies for each marker and for a concatenated dataset including the three genes. Small dataset may compromise some methods estimations of sequence divergence in the ATP6 marker. Monophyly of the four genera in Potamotrygonidae was confirmed and phylogenetic relationships among members of the Potamotrygon genus were not clearly resolved. However, results obtained with the molecular marker Cytb appear to offer a good starting point to differentiate among genera and species as a tool that could be used for barcoding. The application of this gene as a barcode could be applied for management and regulation of extraction practices for these genera. Sequencing complete mitochondrial genomes would be the next step for testing evolutionary hypothesis among these genera. Population structure analyses should be undertaken for Paratrygon, Potamotrygon magdalenae and motoro.

    ABSTRACT: The drill (Mandrillus leucophaeus) is a primate of the family Cercopithecidae (Old World monkeys). Drills are among Africa's most endangered mammals, and are listed by the IUCN as the highest conservation priority of all African primates and are used as a model for cytomegalovirus vaccine and antiviral development. Here, we describe the complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) sequence of M. leucophaeus. The genome is 16 547 bp in length, comprising 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNAs, 2 rRNAs and a major non-coding region. The gene content and order is in accord with the common vertebrate form. All PCGs share the start codon ATG except ND2(ATC), ND3(ATT) and ND5(ATA). ND1, ND2 and ATP8 use ATG as the end codon. COX1, COX2, ATP6, ND4L and ND5 employ ATT as the end codon. The other five PCGs share the end codon T--. Phylogenic tree was constructed based on the complete mitogenome of M. leucophaeus and 12 closely related species to estimate their phylogenic relationship. We present an important genetic resource for the family Cercopithecidae in general.
