The Manchurian trout, Brachymystax lenok tsinlingensis, is endangered in Korea, where the southern range limit for this cold-freshwater fish occurs. In this study, the complete mitochondrial genome of Korean B. lenok tsinlingensis was sequenced and its genetic characteristics were identified. The mitogenome of B. lenok tsinlingensis comprises 16,748 base(More)
BACKGROUND Microsatellites, a special class of repetitive DNA sequence, have become one of the most popular genetic markers for population/conservation genetic studies. However, its application to endangered species has been impeded by high development costs, a lack of available sequences, and technical difficulties. The water deer Hydropotes inermis is the(More)
There has been very little effort to understand genetic divergence between wild and hatchery populations of masu salmon (Oncorhynchus masou). In this study, we used mitochondrial (mt) NADH dehydrogenase subunit 5 gene (ND5) and six polymorphic nuclear microsatellite DNA loci to compare the genetic variability in three hatchery broodstocks of masu salmon(More)
The population genetic structure and phylogeography of masu salmon were investigated by using variation in the mitochondrial NADH dehydrogenase subunit 5 gene (ND5) and six polymorphic microsatellite loci among a total of 895 fish representing 18 populations collected from Japan (9), Russia (7), and Korea (2) from 2000 to 2008. An analysis of ND5 nucleotide(More)
The red fox (Vulpes vulpes) is the most widely distributed terrestrial carnivore in the world, occurring throughout most of North America, Europe, Asia, and North Africa. In South Korea, however, this species has been drastically reduced due to habitat loss and poaching. Consequently, it is classified as an endangered species in Korea. As a first step of a(More)
Using a next-generation sequencing approach, we have developed 21 novel microsatellite markers in Brachymystax lenok tsinlingensis, an endangered freshwater fish species in Korea. All new microsatellite markers were successfully genotyped using 30 samples from 2 tributaries (BA and DMZ) of the Han River. These new microsatellite markers produced 102(More)
In this study, we determined the complete mitogenome sequence of Siberian stone loach, Barbatula toni (Dybowsky, 1869). The total length of mitogenome is 16 623 bp, which consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and 1 control region (D-loop). The genome organization and gene order were identical to that of the typical vertebrates.(More)
The complete mitochondrial genome of Hymeniacidon sinapium (Demospongiae, Halichondriidae) is reported here for the first time. The H. sinapium mitogenome is 23,435 base pairs in total length and includes 14 protein-coding gene sequences, small and large rRNA sequences, and 25 tRNA sequences. All genes are encoded on the heavy strand without overlapping(More)
The Black star fat minnow (Rhynchocypris semotilus) is an endemic and critically endangered freshwater fish in Korea. Its genome was 16 605 bp long and consisted of 13 protein-coding genes (PCG), two rRNA genes, 22 tRNA genes, and a control region. The gene order and the composition of R. semotilus were similar to that of most other vertebrates. Four(More)
Here, we report the information about molecular and expression characterization of NR1 gene in chum salmon for the first time. The complete NR1 subunit showed a large open-reading frame of 2844 bp in the total length of 3193 bp, and this cDNA contained a coding region encoding 948 amino acids and a stop codon. The organization of the NR1 subunit of chum(More)
