In this study, the complete mitochondrianl genome of Procypris merus was sequenced. It was determined to be 16,581 bp and included 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes and 1 non-coding region (D-loop). The descending order of the base composition on heavy strand was 31.91% A, 24.95% T, 27.39% C, 15.75% G, which is similar to other(More)
The Chinese perch (Siniperca chuatsi) is one of the most commercially important carnivorous fish species in aquaculture with its large-scale culture in China. Increasing evidence suggests that microRNAs (miRNAs) play an important role in muscle cell proliferation and differentiation. However, the knowledge of the identity of myogenic miRNAs and the effect(More)
Smyd1 is a SET and MYND domain-containing protein, which functions as a histone methyltransferase for control of gene expression and regulates the skeletal and cardiac muscle differentiation. In this study, the full-length cDNA sequences of Smyd1a and Smyd1b were cloned from Chinese perch, and their molecular structure and expression profile in response to(More)
Culter dabryi, a medium-sized economic cyprinid fish, is widely distributed in East Asia. We sequenced the complete mitochondrial genome of this species. The genome is 16,622 bp in length, and consists of 22 transfer RNA genes, 13 protein-coding genes, two ribosomal RNA genes and the non-coding control region with a structural organization conserved(More)
In this study, we cloned and sequenced the complete mitochondrial DNAs of Chinese mandarin fish, Siniperca scherzeri populations from four different areas of the Yangtze River and the Pearl River systems in China. In the Yangtze River system, fish samples were taken from three regions, Dongting Lake (DT), Poyang Lake (PL) and Xiangjiang River (XR). In the(More)
In this study, we cloned and sequenced the complete mitochondrial DNA of ricefield eel populations from four different areas (Guizhou province, Guangxi province, Hunan province, and Guangdong province) in China. The mitochondrial genome was 16,622 bp in length and deposited in the GenBank with accession numbers KP779622-KP779625. The organizations of the(More)
In this study, we determined the complete mitochondrial DNA sequence of the hybrid of Ctenopharyngodon idellus (♀) × Elopichthys bambusa (♂). The total length of the mitochondrial genome was 16,609 bp (accession number KM401549), with the base composition of 31.89% A, 26.33% C, 15.68% G, 26.11% T. The genome contained 2 ribosomal RNA genes, 13(More)
Objective: The essential myosin light chains (EMLC) are the major structural and regulatory proteins that control actin-myosin interaction in striated muscles. The purpose of this work is to provide a better understanding about the EMLC properties and their expression pattern during muscle development in the mandarin fish. Material and Methods: The cDNA(More)
We cloned and sequenced the complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of Cirrhinus mrigala (♀) × Labeo rohita (♂) by PCR-based method. The total of the mtDNA was 16,595 bp. It consisted of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNAs, 2 rRNA genes, and one putative control region (D-loop region). The overall base composition on strand was as follows A: 32.09%, G: 15.51%, C:(More)
In this study, we cloned and sequenced the complete mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) of Synechogobius hasta to characterize and compare their mitochondrial genomes. The total length of the mitochondrial genome is 16,655 bp with an accession number KM891736. The organization of the mitochondrial genomes was similar to those reported from other fish mitochondrial(More)
