Both Dabry’s sturgeon (Acipenser dabryanus) and Chinese sturgeon (A. sinensis) are rare fish and listed as first class protected animals in China. Nowadays, an artificial release program has been established as a main way to maintain and restore their wild populations. Unintentional interspecific hybridization of these two sturgeons might occur because of… (More)
Due to an unfortunate turn of events, Fig. 2 appeared incorrectly in the original publication causing the caption to mismatch the figure. The correct image and its caption are published here and should be treated as definitive by the reader.
The complete mitochondrial genome of the Triplophysa robusta has been determined in this study. It is 16,572 bp in size and consists of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, two rRNA genes, and one non-coding control region (D-loop). The overall base composition of the heavy strand of the T. robusta mitochondrial genome was A: 28.20%, T: 28.27%, C:… (More)
The complete mitochondrial DNA genome of Ptychobarbus kaznakovi was sequenced and characterized. The genome is 16,842 bp in length. Similar with most teleosts, it has two ribosomal RNA (rRNA) genes, 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA (tRNA) genes, and one displacement loop (D-loop) region. Conserved sequence blocks, including ETAS, CSB-B, D, E, F, and… (More)
Dabry’s sturgeon (Acipenser dabryanus) is an endemic freshwater species in China mainly distributed in the mainstream of the upper Yangtze River and its tributaries. Due to river fragmentation, sand/gravel extraction, over-fishing, and water pollution, the wild population of Dabry’s sturgeon suffered a dramatic decline. In the present study, 26 novel single… (More)
