The complete mitochondrial genome of Labeo rohita, an important cultivable fish, was determined for the first time. The genome is 16,611 bp in length and consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes, and one control region. The gene organisation and its order were similar to other vertebrates. The overall base composition on heavy strand(More)
Whole genome sequencing (WGS) using next generation sequencing technologies paves the way to sequence the mitochondrial genomes with greater ease and lesser time. Here, we used the WGS data of Clarias batrachus, generated from Roche 454 and Ion Torrent sequencing platforms, to assemble the complete mitogenome using both de novo and reference based(More)
In the present study, the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Heteropneustes fossilis is reported using massive parallel sequence technology. The complete mitogenome of H. fossilis is obtained by de novo assembly of paired end Illumina sequences using CLC Genomics Workbench version 7.0.4, which is 16,489 bp in length. It comprised of 13 protein-(More)
Expressed sequence tags (EST) provide a valuable and cost effective source of developing simple sequence repeat (SSR) markers. In the present study, genic microsatellite markers were developed for Macrobrachium rosenbergii through mining of EST databases. Twenty-three polymorphic EST-SSR loci were found with number of alleles ranging from 3 to 10, observed(More)
Complete nucleotide sequence of mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of the Catla catla (Ostariophysi: Cypriniformes: Cyprinidae) was determined in the present study. Its length is 16,594 bp and contains 13 protein coding genes, 22 transfer RNAs, two ribosomal RNAs and one non-coding control region. Most of the genes were encoded on the H-strand, while the ND6(More)
Genetic diversity and population structure of Cirrhinus mrigala from peninsular riverine systems of India was studied using mitochondrial DNA gene, cytochrome b and truss morphometric analysis. Analysis of 982 bp of the cytochrome b gene from 182 samples collected from six rivers revealed the presence of 28 haplotypes with overall high haplotype diversity(More)
The complete mitochondrial genome of Labeo fimbriatus, the fringe-lipped carp, was determined for the first time. The genome was 16,614 bp in length and consisted of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, 2 rRNA genes and one control region. Organization of genes and their order are in accordance with other vertebrates. The overall base composition on the(More)
Kisspeptin is an important regulator of reproduction in mammals and presumably non-mammalian species. In the Indian subcontinent, rohu (Labeo rohita) is a commercially important seasonal breeder freshwater fish species, but till date, the expression of kisspeptin gene during different phases of annual reproductive cycle has not been investigated. To address(More)
Activin receptor type IIA (ActRIIA), a transmembrane serine/threonine kinase receptor is an important regulator of physiological traits, viz., reproduction and body growth in vertebrates including teleosts. However, existing knowledge of its role in regulating fish physiology is limited. To address this, we have cloned and characterized the ActRIIA cDNA of(More)
Labeo rohita, popularly known as rohu, is a widely cultured species in whole Indian subcontinent. In the present study, we used in-silico approach to resolve complete mitochondrial genome of rohu. Low-depth shotgun sequencing using Roche 454 GS FLX (Branford, Connecticut, USA) followed by de novo assembly in CLC Genomics Workbench version 7.0.4 (Aarhus,(More)
