The Complete Mitochondrial Genome of Ctenoptilum vasava (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae: Pyrginae) and Its Phylogenetic Implication
Phylogenetic analyses (ML and BI methods) showed that Papilionoidea is not a natural group, and Hesperioidesa is placed within the PapilionOidea as a sister to ((Pieridae + Lycaenidae) + Nymphalidae) while Papilionoidae is paraphyletic to HesPerioidea. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the yellow coaster, Acraea issoria (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Heliconiinae: Acraeini): sequence, gene organization and a unique tRNA translocation event
In this paper, the complete mitochondrial genome of Acraea issoria (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Heliconiinae: Acraeini) is reported; a circular molecule of 15,245 bp in size. For A. issoria, genes areExpand
Complete mitogenome of the Lesser Purple Emperor Apatura ilia (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Apaturinae) and comparison with other nymphalid butterflies.
The comparison of the nucleotide sequences of the A. ilia mitogenome with ten other Nymphalidae species showed nearly identical gene orientation and arrangement, with only a few alterations in non-coding fragments. Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of the Common Evening Brown, Melanitis leda Linnaeus (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Satyrinae)
The 314-bp-long AT-rich region is the smallest of all the butterfly corresponding regions available and contains some conserved structures similar to those found in other butterfly mitogenomes, including the motif ATAGA followed by a 19-bp poly-T stretch and a microsatellite-like (AT)6 element preceded by the ATTTA motif.

Morphological Characters Are Compatible with Mitogenomic Data in Resolving the Phylogeny of Nymphalid Butterflies (Lepidoptera: Papilionoidea: Nymphalidae)
A phylogenetic analysis of the 33 species from all 13 currently recognized nymphalid subfamilies was done, finding that the mitogenomic phylogeny established herein is compatible with selected morphological characters (including developmental and adult morpho-characters). Expand
Enzymatic characterization of a monomeric isocitrate dehydrogenase from Streptomyces lividans TK54.
It is reported for the first time the enzymatic characterization of a monomeric NADP(+)-dependent IDH from Streptomyces lividans TK54 (SlIDH), which is a divalent cation-dependent monomersic IDH with remarkably high coenzyme preference for NADP (+). Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Blue Pansy, Junonia orithya (Lepidoptera: Nymphalidae: Nymphalinae)
The complete mitochondrial genome of Junonia orithya Linnaeus (Lepidoptera): Nymphalidae: Nymphalinae is determined to be 15,214 bp in length, including 37 typical mitochondrial genes and an AT-rich region that contains several features common to the other lepidopterans. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of Parara guttata (Lepidoptera: Hesperiidae)
Abstract The mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Parara guttata (Hesperiidae: Hesperiinae) is a circular molecule of 15,441 bp in length, containing 37 typical animal mitochondrial genes: 13Expand
Complete mitochondrial genome of the five-dot sergeant Parathyma sulpitia (Nymphalidae: Limenitidinae) and its phylogenetic implications.
The results indicated that Limenitidinae was a sister to the Heliconiinae among the main Nymphalidae lineages in this study, strongly supporting the results of previous molecular data, while contradicting speculations based on morphological characters. Expand
The complete mitochondrial genome of the endangered Apollo butterfly, Parnassius apollo (Lepidoptera: Papilionidae) and its comparison to other Papilionidae species
The Apollo butterfly, Parnassius apollo, is a representative species of the butterfly subfamily Parnassiinae and its complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) is sequenced, with the aim of accumulating genetic information for further studies of population genetics and mitogenome evolution in the Papilionidae.
