Leigh syndrome is a subacute necrotising encephalomyopathy proven by post-mortem analysis of brain tissue showing spongiform lesions with vacuolation of the neuropil followed by demyelination, gliosis and capillary proliferation caused by mutations in one of over 75 different genes, including nuclear- and mitochondrial-encoded genes, most of which are(More)
Pundamilia nyererei (Perciformes, Cichlidae) is a member of Cichlid fishes that lives in the Great Lakes of East Africa. Fishes of the Cichlidae family can adapt spectacular trophic radiations and provide good potential examples of vertebrate adaptive radiations. Here, we firstly assembled the complete mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) of Pundamilia(More)
Brugada syndrome is a primary arrhythmic syndrome that accounts for 20% of all sudden cardiac death cases in individuals with a structurally normal heart. Pathogenic variants associated with Brugada syndrome have been identified in over 19 genes, with SCN5A as a pivotal gene accounting for nearly 30% of cases. In contrast to other arrhythmogenic(More)
Microtus ochrogaster, a small vole, found in central North America. Recently the genome sequencing had been done, but no more information of its mitochondrial reported. Herein, we first assembled the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Microtus ochrogaster. It is a 16 292 bp long sequence with most mitogenome's characteristic structure, 13(More)
Maylandia zebra, a member of the family cichlid living in individual African lakes, are regarded as a significant evolution model. Recently the genome sequencing had been done, but there is no sufficient information about its mitochondria. Herein, we first assembled the complete mitochondrial genome sequence of Maylandia zebra. It is a 16 582 bp long(More)
Familial hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis type 2 (FHL2), caused by perforin 1 (PRF1), is a genetic disorder of lymphocyte cytotoxicity that usually presents in the first 2 years of life and has a poor prognosis. Late onset of FHL2 has been sporadically reported, and the mechanism is largely unknown. A newly diagnosed FHL2 patient was detected to have(More)
The Amazon molly, Poecilia formosa, a member of the Poeciliidae family, is a freshwater fish reproducing through gynogenesis. The complete mitochondrial genome of the P. formosa is determined for the first time in this study. It is a circular molecule of 16 542 bp in length, including 13 protein-coding genes, 22 transfer RNA genes, 2 ribosomal RNA genes and(More)
The Sorex araneus (common shrew), a member of the Soricidae family, is the most common shrew throughout Northern Europe. The region includes Great Britain, but excludes Ireland. Herein, we first publish the complete mitochondrial genome of S. araneus. The mitogenome is 16 887 bp in length, which contains 24 tRNA genes, 13 protein-coding genes, 2 rRNA genes(More)
The emperor penguin (Aptenodytes forsteri) is the largest living species of penguin. Herein, we first reported the complete mitochondrial genome of emperor penguin. The mitochondrial genome is a circular molecule of 17 301 bp in length, consisting of 13 protein-coding genes, 22 tRNA genes, two rRNA, and one control region. To verify the accuracy and the(More)
