Complete mitochondrial genome of Otis tarda (Gruiformes: Otididae) and phylogeny of Gruiformes inferred from mitochondrial DNA sequences
The complete nucleotide sequence of mitochondrial genome of the Great bustard (Otis tarda) was determined by using polymerase chain reaction (PCR) method and showed that Otididae was a sister group to “core Gruiformes” and Charadriiformes with strong support in Bayesian analysis.
Sequence variability analysis on major histocompatibility complex class II DRB alleles in three felines
Results displayed a more close relationship between leopard and tiger; however, clouded leopard has a comparatively distant relationship form the other two; and MEGA neighbor joining and PAUP maximum parsimony methods were used to reconstruct phylogenetic trees among species.
β-Keratins in crocodiles reveal amino acid homology with avian keratins
From the phylogenetic analysis, the β-keratins in crocodile have a closer relationship with avian keratins than the other ker atins in reptiles.
Two complete mitochondrial genomes of Crocodylus and implications for crocodilians phylogeny
The results suggest that the gharials joins the false gharial on a common branch, that constitutes a sister group to traditional Crocodylidae, and Mecistops cataphractus is evidently most closely related to Osteolaemus tetraspis within the Alligatoridae.
Complete sequence and gene organization of the mitochondrial genome of Siamensis Crocodile (Crocodylus siamensis)
The complete sequence of mitochondrial genome of Siamensis Crocodile (Crocodylus siamensis) is determined by using PCR amplification, clone and primer-walking sequencing methods, and the nonstandard stop codes (T) in two protein genes are more than those of most vertebrates.
Population Genetics and Phylogeography of Bufo gargarizans in China
Phylogeographic analyses suggested that past fragmentation and/or long-distance colonization seemed to have shaped the present-day distribution of the haplotypes of B. gargarizans.
