Major patterns of higher teleostean phylogenies: a new perspective based on 100 complete mitochondrial DNA sequences.
MitoFish and MitoAnnotator: A Mitochondrial Genome Database of Fish with an Accurate and Automatic Annotation Pipeline
MitoFish contains re-annotations of previously sequenced fish mitogenomes, enabling researchers to refer to them when they find annotations that are likely to be erroneous or while conducting comparative mitogenomic analyses.
The complete nucleotide sequence of a snake (Dinodon semicarinatus) mitochondrial genome with two identical control regions.
Southern hybridization experiments using mtDNAs purified from multiple akamata individuals showed that the duplicate state of the control region is not a transient or unstable feature found in a particular individual, but that it stably occurs in mitochondrial genomes of the species.
Body plan convergence in the evolution of skates and rays (Chondrichthyes: Batoidea).
Mitogenomic exploration of higher teleostean phylogenies: a case study for moderate-scale evolutionary genomics with 38 newly determined complete mitochondrial DNA sequences.
It is concluded that purposeful higher-density taxonomic sampling, subsequent sequencing efforts, and phylogenetic analyses of their mitogenomes may be decisive in resolving persistent controversies over higher-level relationships of teleosts, the most diversified group of all vertebrates, comprising over 23,500 extant species.
Basal actinopterygian relationships: a mitogenomic perspective on the phylogeny of the "ancient fish".
Sequence evolution of mitochondrial tRNA genes and deep-branch animal phylogenetics
It is proposed that mitochondrial tRNAs may be useful in resolving deep branches in animal phylogenies with divergences that occurred some hundreds of Myr ago and designed a set of primers with which mtDNA fragments encompassing clustered tRNA genes were successfully amplified from various vertebrates by the polymerase chain reaction.
Evolution of trace amine associated receptor (TAAR) gene family in vertebrates: lineage-specific expansions and degradations of a second class of vertebrate chemosensory receptors expressed in the…
expression analysis of zebrafish and stickleback TAAR genes revealed that many TAARs in these fishes were expressed in the olfactory organ, suggesting the relatively high importance ofTAARs as chemosensory receptors in fishes.
Mitogenomic Evolution and Interrelationships of the Cypriniformes (Actinopterygii: Ostariophysi): The First Evidence Toward Resolution of Higher-Level Relationships of the World’s Largest Freshwater…
The present study represents the first attempt toward resolution of the higher-level relationships of the world’s largest freshwater-fish clade based on whole mitochondrial genome sequences from 53 cypriniforms plus 6 outgroups, and it is advocated that RY-coding, which takes only transversions into account, effectively removes this likely “noise” from the data set and avoids the apparent lack of signal by retaining all available positions in the dataSet.
Lake Tanganyika as an evolutionary reservoir of old lineages of East African cichlid fishes: Inferences from allozyme data
- M. Nishida

Phylogenetic analysis based on the allozyme data indicated that at least seven old, ancestral lineages have contributed to the present cichlid fauna of the lake.
